Jimmy Sails World
I am very excited to announce that I am sailing on the Chinese entry in the Clipper 11/12 RTW Yacht Race. Our beautiful boat Qingdao (you cant miss her.. Purple with big red dragons down the sides) will be my home for the next year. Having met my skipper (Ian Conchie) and crew (see the list on the Qingdao page of the clipper website) I could not be happier! Even with the knowledge that I am going to be racing against a Yorkshire boat! Ah well we may be rivals but at sea you are all family anyway so good luck to the Welcome to Yorkshire team and the rest of the clipper boats but remember…

    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!!!
