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!
