Re: Forum Member's Boat and Daughter in Trouble off of Mexico

Rebel Heart & Crew,

Welcome. We are glad you're safe. A time of crisis like this will show you who your friends are, as well as those "dillowitly" endowed.

Best wishes,

Ann

3. They aren't wealthy and they've lost their one major asset. Eric was working as they went. There is no huge cruising kitty.
4. They are being flooded by people who think that they are bad parents and bad people. A tangible gesture of support means more than a positive comment on a news site or a forum (although those are important, too).
5. If they don't want it, then they can donate it to a good cause.

Exactly!

She is what she is, the byline for her site is "Come for the books, stay for the snark."

At least quasi truth in advertising.

I hope we are going to start reposting the blogs and resumes of the misinformed here; otherwise, we'll be here forever.

Re: Forum Member's Boat and Daughter in Trouble off of Mexico

Hey guys, we're all fine and back in San Diego.

The media has been all over us and honestly the facts are so distorted at this point I don't even know where to start. In the few hours we've been back in town the media has been all over us, right up to the front door of our doctor's office when we were getting Lyra checked out.

The rescuers (the 129th California Air National Guard and the USS Vandegrift) were amazing; I've never met a better group of professionals.

I totally want to give you guys all the details but I need the media storm to die down. I've been so amazed at the support that the sailing community has offered us. There was a sailboat that came by the USS Vandegrift on our way into San Diego Harbor that had Rebel Heart banners streaming off of it.

I know some people with disagree with whatever actions I took, but for those of you who support me I want you to know that you've warmed my heart. This entire thing has humbled me and I feel an immense sense of gratitude towards everyone involved.

I promise I'll come back with all the details, but we need to get away from the cameras and lose our fifteen minutes of fame first.

Re: Forum Member's Boat and Daughter in Trouble off of Mexico

Why is the Dilloway person worthy of commenting in a news piece? Why did the CBS 'reporter' find her? 'Cause she's got a mommy blog? She knows naught of sailing. But somehow she's an authority on something....

Thanks Eric for stopping by. Glad everyone is doing good. This thread did better than your "Advantages of a 100 ton Captain" thread. lol

Good on you man. Don't say a damn word to anyone for a few weeks. There is no way you can win in that conversation. Let the press get bored and move on. We will still all be here in two weeks.
