Jimmy Sails World
Currently we are sitting if 4th and in hot pursuit of Singapore and then New York (both of which we have put behind us in the past so we know we can do it) Its a long race though and with more than 2/3 still to go no one is getting too excited yet. Life at speed has been fun if hard. Super concentration (especially at the helm) is the order of the day and has ment long spells helming for the experienced guys as the new crew learn the craft (on a tough steep curve!) It's been cold too, bitter! and you really feel it when you are going fast. we have had the old girl at 20 plus knts through the water which equated to around 25 knts over the ground (sea floor, actual distance!) so our super 24 hour runs were racking up the miles! long may it last, although we are in less wind  (good for a bit of rest and mother watch (today me!)) and wind holes are forcast so lets see what we can do! long and short, for now our dragon is roaring!!

    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!!!
