William Newman, male, 32

Ref 42804

Nationality: United Kingdom
Currently based in: , France
Looking for: Caribbean; Central & North America;
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 0 coastal miles
I found this Website due to Urgently needing to get to Central America; I don't want to sound overly dramatic here, but my Mother is really close to having another stroke and this is an emergency for me to try and get myself to Panama in Central America as soon as possible and do whatever it takes to get there which is why i'm here; I have zero sailing experience but i'm a fast learner and will do whatever is required of me.. If anyone out there is making this crossing from Anywhere in Europe to Central America, either Costa Rica or Panama please let me know, I would be eternally grateful!
