Thunderbird 5 is a 97' steel gaff-rigged ketch commanded by Captain Ray. She is in the Bahamas readying for her next voyage after a i year humanitarian aid cruise in the Caribbean and responding to the 2015 Dominica Storm Erika devastation. Volunteers are welcome to help prepare and there is accommodation available on the vessel for people not in the area.
AID CARGO LOADED in Florida late December bound for charities in La Gonave, Haiti. IRG Reserve S/V Good Run is meeting us in the Bahamas to take on the cargo to Haiti. Our mission will then be accomplished.
ITINERARY is February in Spanish Wells, Eleuthera, Bahamas for maybe another 2 weeks replacing a blown head gasket then a fun sail to Georgetown, Exuma where we will spend some time. If you have any questions after reading this, contact email@example.com
We are a charity and sometimes these plans depend on the support we obtain. This is not a "mint-on-the-pillow" kind of thing, it's an adventure. Everybody works. Note that this is not the kind of voyage for people with a rigid schedule!
Please note that crew contributions for this voyage are $20 per day which includes food, fuel and consumable, so you'll spend a lot less than you do on land... We do eat well. ALL OUR CREW WHO HAVE ASKED FRIENDS, FAMILY, COLLEAGUES AND SOCIAL MEDIA FOR SPONSORSHIP THROUGH OUR ONLINE FUNDRAISER HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PAY FOR THEIR ENTIRE VOYAGE!
