Jimmy Sails World
Mother watch is at an end again and so five minutes to write to you before sleep gets the better of me and I crawl into my damp, mildew riddled sleeping bag after climbing to my top bunk on the high side of the boat and drift off for 7 hours glorious sleep! I can really sell it cant I!!
Well today 21st we crossed the international date line and sailed back into the western hemisphere, and if i did not know
what day of the week it ws before I certainly dont know now! All I know is,  we really are on our way home now! it seems silly as I have been home recently but it still feels good to be making progress to home. to celebrate this I cracked open the Ferrero Rocher which went down a treat, then we cooked 3 great meals. including the best porridge of the trip for Terry (odd as  when we mothered together we hated each others porridge, mine too thick his too runny (compromise eh!) I also baked a celebratory cake! Now neither you or Rachael Allen have anything to worry about but it went down well, even if the decorating (assisted by Della from North One) was a little dodgy! photos to come!
Speaking of North One, it seems to be a competition between James Dave and me for air time. Dave plays it down and says I
  get grumpy if I have not had my daily camera time, but he is every bit as bad as me but in denial!!!
Not much else happening a bit of general medic work, nothing serious and lots of wind, we are trying to remain in the top
flight and still cling on to the hope of a podium but i think this one will be close, despite over 2.6 thousand miles to go!
Well sleep and trying to type at a ridiculous angle are getting the better of me so for now I will say night night!

First time to your blog and just wanted to say hello.

    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!!!
