I know nothing about this post, but could imagine someday being the subject of such a request.

I don't live in the area of Mystic, but will reply to the thread to bump it up in the que.

Question, though - Why can't the person just hire a charter for the day and have them sail it? Aren't there Sailtime or other outfits like this in the Mystic area. Even a sailing school would be able to bring them out for a day say for a few hundred $ on a large boat.

Re: Kind hearted sailor needed (Mystic Area CT)

I responded to the CL ad with an offer to use my boat. I imagine this fellow will have a lot of options once the word gets out about the urgency of the situation. I hope he gets his wish.

Man, I am way too far away to help personally, but I would suggest a call to a local yacht club should have excellent results.

Re: Kind hearted sailor needed (Mystic Area CT)

Any word on if they found a ride? I would do it in a heartbeat but I am on the wrong coast.

Re: Kind hearted sailor needed (Mystic Area CT)

I exchanged emails with the son after my previous post in this thread. He and his Dad are out of town for several weeks, but they know I'm available upon their return. Even though they have my offer, I hope that others that are in a position to reach out to the son will do so also. One can never have too many opportunities to go sailing!
