Having re-started my attempt to sail nonstop, solo, around the world in 'Nereida', from Victoria (on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada) in October 2010, but having suffered a knockdown on Day 72, over 100 miles before reaching Cape Horn, I was able to sail around the Cape unaided two days later and finally reached Cape Town in S.Africa on 11th May 2011 - which completed a single-handed circumnavigation started from there on 9th March 2010.
I then sailed on via the Southern Capes of Tasmania and New Zealand and finally sailed back to the Strait of Juan de Fuca, thus completing a circumnavigation from/to there via the Five Great Capes of the Southern Ocean - but with a few stops for essential repairs.
I'm now trying again to achieve a nonstop circumnavigation - starting from Victoria, B.C., on 22nd October 2012 and I've again chosen to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care in doing so. This is a great charity that provides specially-trained nurses free of charge to enable terminally ill people to end their days in their own homes surrounded by their loved ones.
Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Marie Curie Cancer Care gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, is added to your donation.
Thank you so much for visiting my sponsorship site. I appreciate your support and have enjoyed hearing from many of you over the past months.
You can see my route (I post my position daily while on passage) and you can also read my daily reports by going to my website: www.svnereida.com
