Hi. Please respond off-list of your interest, I receive the list in
digest format and posting to the list delays my response ability.
This Cruise to Chile is possible. Those who are interested may want to
get together in a chat room somewhere or a conference phone call hosted
by a sponsor company to figure out how to put this together. Lets make
the plans and start mapping the steps regardless of the scope of the
task. Youth are encouraged to suggest, help, plan, and if desired take
on part of the task.
As of right now, I pledge myself, my license, and our Sea Scout vessel
(pending approvals from council, committee, God) holding 21 to the
entire cruise. The biggest expenses will be fuel, repairs and
maintenance, airfare for adults and licenses, crew airfares, and food.
If we could get REAL sponsorship from Cummins, Detroit Diesel,
Chevron/Exxon/Mobil, etc. this may, indeed work out O.K.
It is so outrageous and ambitious, it deserves discussion.
Yours in Service, jimi
Skipper, SSS-17, Vanguard.
