Jimmy Sails World
Its mother watch for me today and its quite flat on the boat so I am trying to read my book and I may try watching a film later (crew laptop, dont know what yet) who knows this new watch system means we should finish serving dinner about 1830 so plenty of time for a shower and movie before bed. Although I am not a lazy mother so I am back on watch at 6 am (up at 0515) so I cant stay up too late! 
Life on board could not be any different to the Pacific crossing. Dry, flat and sunny (ears burnt again!) flying the kites (Spinnakers) and chatting on deck have replaced sailing with normal "white" sails and huddling in silence on deck praying for watch to end! its a pleasant change! sleep is also good, our new watch system means that people are actually waking up when they are ready before watch having had enough sleep (on the 6 hours off anyway) its nice! We are currently sailing of the Baha
peninsular having passed the Island of Guadaloupe last night, we still have some wind but are not sure how long it will last! a few more days at least we hope but then it looks like light winds if any for a while ah well, make hay while the sun shines as they say!

I have even started reading the book I borrowed and have nearly done a chapter, a first for me on the race to get further than three pages!!

    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!!!
