Here's a word of advice for you Rob. Don't look for any encouragement here.A group of vibrant, idealistic first year med-students from Michigan State University are looking to pursue sailing and service in July and August, 2001.
We envision a trip from port to port stopping along the way to offer our clinical skills and our sweat to those in need, having good times, and helping others do the same.
Although we have no shortage of motivation, we do have one problem... none of us have a boat. Any words of wisdom, advice on locations (either home or abroad), summer climate restraints, finding a boat, sponsorship, chartering deals or willingness to help in any way would be greatly appreciated.
We have a goal, but our status as students puts us in a unique position. We have a dream, but lack the resources to match it... any help, or kind voices of experience would be great. Thanks.
Oh, I guess you may have figured that out already.:laugher:hothead
