Doctor in need of a lift to Haiti

34yrs old, female, experience of sailing trans-Atlantic and Tahiti-Tonga.
Dependable, helpful and clean; recently back from India working for Medicins Sans Frontieres now planning to help a medical friend in Haiti with the Cholera epidemic. Currently based in the UK, can leave immediately and meet at an alternative location provided it makes sense logistically!

Hi there

Thanks for contacting me with your offer, that could be good as flights to Miama are quite straight forward although getting out from there I'm not sure about- are you in The Bahamas at the moment or on mainland US?
I guess i'll need an idea of your departure date and other bits and pieces so perhaps contact my email address: sophiequinney at yahoo dot co dot uk
If you have the technology I am also on skye: sophie.quinney..hear from you soon,
Sophie

If you have the means to fly to the Bahamas, why not simply fly into the DR and simply join one of the truck convoys carring relief supplies into Haiti?

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.
