    Sailboat Chef here.. I am so impressed by your circumnavigation, that is really impressive. I am sure I could learn so much from you. In return I could certainly do wonders for the daily fare.

    Dear Mark,
    I’m stunned and honored to even receive your communique. Wow. I’m all but speechless. Thank you.
    With all your info, I’m not sure what exactly would be your expectations of me. So if you could expound just a bit on what you would hope to find in me, I’d appreciate it.
    You have made some wonderful choices in your life, your experiences your reward. Quite enviable. I was not so wise or fortunate. Nor did I make the best of choices. I was taught to model the norms of family and close friends, which just was not in your circle of exposure and influence.
    But regardless, here we are today. A few weeks ago, I did get offshore with a friend of mine in a 54 foot sailboat. There was not much wind and all. What was there, was right in line with our course, and so we had a severe tach. Around sundown, we added the assistance of the diesel and motored through the night. Our original destination was 100 miles off Galveston at a place called the Flower Garden Bank. We were on a shakedown cruise. By daybreak we had only gotten 50 miles, and decided to turn back. We motored coming back as the wind had all but died.
    Regardless it was a wonderful trip. I learned a lot about sailing, and stood my watches faithfully. I was the helmsman coming back into the Galveston/Houston ship channel. I really enjoyed it. But I also learned that sailing is quite vigorous at times. Not enduring any storms I realized that those kind of things would make the whole thing even more taxing.
    So I’m not sure that “my time” has not already passed before it has even begun.
    I do love to snorkel, and still desire to get a scuba certification. I love the underwater world, and I could eat fish on a daily basis. So exploring the Caribbean would be a wonderful way to slide through my final years while my health remains.
    So tell me what you hope to find in me. Pleasant company? I’m that. A good friend? I think I could be that. A watch partner? I’m up to that but not sure I’d consent to an ocean crossing by sail. 🙂
    So I do hope I will hear from you again. Again, it is my great honor to make your acquaintance. We shall see what transpires as we discover ourselves together for whatever is left in our opportunities to put to see and sail off into the sunset.

    All the very best to your sir,

    Lahry Sibley
    Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

    This might sound a little adventurous but here goes… We are a family of 3 including 3 year old boy trying to get to Columbia. we are in Guadeloupe right now….. No sailing experience but want to learn. We are musicians, easy going vegans, who have a low tech attitude to life… we dont need much. I’m English and my partner is from Israel speaking very good english. Does this sound like an interesting adventure to you… I wonder!
