Jimmy Sails World
This mothers day was a strange day, with not having the usual reminders in every shop. But James R was cool and we supported each other through, as the 20th was the date his dad died so it was a tough few days on that front but good memories too and thats part of why we are both here anyway!
The gremlins are definitely causing grief only out here we know them as
Honey Badgers! no idea why though!!! We have a broken pulpit (front of the boat) and little leaks everywhere are causing lots of water in the boat and therefore lots of bucketing it out!! Joy!! oh and now our instruments wind, speed, direction are not working as often as they Should! tricky!! Also My boots...They now have a hole in the toe (as do Sam Lloyds) absolute rubbish and Dubarry told Sam Normal wear and tear! Although some good news is that my choc supply has survived, i never really envisaged any water damage but i suppose dry bags are not always waterproof!! However no major sweet loss, so no disaster!!
We are close to getting to the 2000 mile to go mark (10 days to 2 weeks)
its a long slog! cant wait for san fran! 
Well its Chilli and a special apple crumble for dinner no weight loss for
me then!!

    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!!!
