Jimmy Sails World
Not much to tell so far, we have had our spinnaker up now almost since race start and are making reasonable speeds and are in a good position (even if we are showing as mid fleet) the boats are all close but now mainly out of sight, as is land!
The new watch pattern seems ok to start with, had 5 hours sleep!!! And the new sleeping bag is a treat after the wet mouldy gauss but it's not as roomy! All I can say is Bill .... you saved my sanity with sleep cheers mate!!! I owe you many beers! A dry boat is also a treat, lets hope we can keep it that way!!

Glad the sleeping bag was useful :-) - you may need to update your home page now (about the right equipment) :-) have fun going through the panama canal - see you in S'ton

    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!!!
