Mexico to japan solo sail

I was injured in afghanistan at 18 years old while serving woth the british armed forces.
One day on patrol in sangin a bomb exploded and My life changed in an instant suddenly i was in a wheel chair and a triple amputee .
Not knowing if i would ever walk again or play guitar and windsurf or sail.
Thanks to blesma and turn to starboard i achieved all of those things and way way more i now live on my own boat and sail around the world with my family. But now its time to give back.
I want to sail.the biggest ocean on the planet solo non stop from mexico to japan this will be a world first.
The first triple amputee to sail across the pacific non stop solo.
But i need some equipment and thats where i need help raising some initial funds to get the boat in to ship shape, rigging change new life raft etc. Or if you know of a company willing to sponsor someones dream.
The big idea is to raise finds for the charities so skynews and lots of local news channels are in the line up for interviews.
Lets make this happen and hopefully inspire, raise money and change peoples lives.
Thank you all so much
