Day 22 towards Cape Horn - A booby comes to visit, in continuing grey conditions

On going up on deck to keep an eye out for the ship, I was kept entertained for a good half hour by a brown booby trying to land in our rigging to roost overnight - darkness was just falling.

Since I'm sailing around the world solo, non-stop, unaided - around the Five Great Capes, including Cape Horn - which will be quite a challenge, I would like to raise money for the excellent free nursing care for terminally ill cancer sufferers provided by Marie Curie Cancer Care whilst doing so.

If you click on the Marie Curie logo, you can donate via the secure 'Just Giving' website - many thanks for your sponsorship of my efforts!
