I am a seaman at heart. I have spent the last 4 years of my life dedicating all my time and energy to being a sailor. During this time, I have been fortunate enough to work in partnership with research vessel Lady Amber in affiliation with NASA and several other boat owners to gain further experience. To date, I have safely completed 3 ocean crossings, 4 deliveries and captained 3 vessels. In order to accomplish my overall goal and further my career in sailing and traveling, I will need to complete my Yachtmasters. During each of these trips, I have been able to use my knowledge, ability and expertise to teach local communities about the ocean, water safety and conservation.
The Yachtmasters course completion will allow me to Captain my own vessel so I may continue gaining worldly experience and volunteering in countries that may not have the resources to gain this understanding of the seas surrounding us and the life that it provides to us all.
The total course will cost $6 000 .which includes all study materials, equipment required, certifications, room and board and all travel expenses. I am reaching out to the community for assistance in this matter. If you know me, you know what I am capable of and that I will stop at nothing to achieve these goals. Any and all financial support is greatly appreciated. Kindly forward this request to any contacts you believe may be willing to help.
