Hi Sophie,

Just curious, but if you are going to fly to Miami, why not fly to DR and go across the border ( I would think it would not be hard to go across that way... coming the other way may be more difficult... smile)? If it is to enjoy the trip as much as the destination, I am good with that. But if you are a physician, I don't understand why it would be at all difficult for you to get to Haiti?

Now comes the dad (sorry... I have to): But I would really encourage you to be very, very cautious about jumping on a small boat with someone. There are some really good people on boats, and I have also met some really wierdos. And once you are on the boat and going, there is no getting off, no cell phones, no VHF, nothing. You have obviously done some travelling, and probably know how to protect yourself better than I do, but a pretty, intelligent, young woman on the wrong boat could really be trouble.

Just some thoughts which I am sure you have thought about.

Brian

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Well, I encourage what she is doing it. THere are a precious few people that will give freely of themselves and their time for humanity as a whole. It is the method that worries me. And a doctor too?

I'm just the conservative old (well, not too old) dad!!

sophieq is on a distinguished road
Hi both
So I guess you got it the first time - it's about the trip as much as simply flying there - i have a reservation into Santa Dominica too but I love to sail and felt it about time i took a break after a hellish time dealing with desperately poor communities in India and all the nasty things that happen to them as a consequence before arriving at another scenario with a similarly tragic story...
I have no naivity about the sailing community...high concentration of weirdos..lets not forget my experience mid-Atlantic in the famous 32 Nicholson 'Compromise' with a psychotic Canadian skipper all those years ago...
Hard to be female and wanting to sail and impossible not to have to come up against risk in this environment
If only life was as straight forward as to produce perfect gentlemen each time...
I am touched that you are showing me genuine concern...thanks
