GLOBAL SOLO CHALLENGE 84

American Curt Morlock Drops Out of Global Solo Challenge non-stop solo race around the world.

Forced to sell my boat over a 6700 euro bill. Want to sail with me ? We can make this happen. 

I owe the boatyard 6700 euros. I had one quick repair, needed two months of freeze-dried food, paint the bow deck orange and tape the top of the mainsail orange. We could be in the race right now. I am surprised how difficult it is to get support from my American brothers, sisters, and corporations. I sold my house and retirement for this. I spent over 300k. I have lost everything. If a qualified sailor wants to sail around the world with me, please contact me. Two skippers make for an easy sail, and three even easier. Consider 10k each, we could still make this happen.
