Jimmy Sails World
Well, we are finally heading North again and hopefully soon our fingers and toes can start to thaw out! Its all to play for with the finish line around 1300nm away and a large high pressure system causing the fleet to experience no wind at times, This should mix things up and who knows perhaps the Qingdao Shuffle is on!!!

Spirits are good on board and I had a great birthday (oddest one to date!) Thanks to everyone for all your messages. They made it extra special and meant the world to me! The weather has been quite good the last few days and we have made some good runs. Last night we were treated to one of the best sunsets I have ever seen, a real Southern Ocean treat! But it is time to leave the here now and head to Oz, tomorrow should see us out of the Roaring Forties but with some low pressure systems chasing us, that does not mean that things will be smooth sailing!

well back on deck now to finish my 11pm to 3am watch, then bed!!!

Keep up the good work Jimbo. Love you millions and missing you millions xxxxxxxxx

    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!!!
