Hello, my name is Lama. I'm a firefighter, a naval aircrewman and a sailing instructor. I have had a dream ever since I was young. I've always dreamed of sailing around the world. Finally, earlier this year, I discovered I had that opportunity. A singlehanded, nonstop, round-the-world race, the ultimate challenge. This is the dream coming to fruition! And it's happening in the safest way possible, with rules, regulations and a race committee. I have a boat, and I'm almost ready to go. The only problem is the rules and regulations features equipment I do not have. To make this boat as safe as possible and comply with the race's standards, I need nearly $20,000 of equipment. That's where you come in. With your help, I hope to raise this goal. Join me on my journey as I prepare to sail around the world. Be a part of the team and help make history. Thank you!
