Jimmy Sails World
Qingdao finally arrived home after 11 months and 3 weeks away. They finished race 15, Den Helder to Southampton in 8th position. Out of the 10 boats they came 9th overall just falling short of Derry/Londonderry in 8th place by 4 points. They were the only boat to be awarded the Henri Lloyd Seamanship award.

Congratulations to all crew for their extraordinary achievement and Thank you to Ian (Un)Conchie for bringing them all safely (if not slightly battered) home.

Great information and site

    Its like Jim Kirk but without the star dates and I'm not the captain!

     Well here is where you can get to find out a little more about how I'm getting on in my quest for adventure.

    I aim to keep you posted on my training (both how I cope with learning to sail and how I am getting into shape for the race), How I am doing with regards to funding and how much money I have raised for good causes.

    I intend on this to be a journal of everything connected to this epic adventure, so at times it may be funny, sometimes full of grumbles and sometimes down right crazy! but I hope at all times it will reflect my experiences and feelings at the time.

    So watch this space!!!
