Phil

One, two. One, two. Is this working? Good.

Hi. I'm Phil. I'm about to sail around the world for the first time in my life. Crazy isn't it?

Now, what's even crazier I have been set the challenge to do it in 80 days. Eight, zero! I've been thinking about some of things I need to take, let me show you.

I have a map. And a compass – north, east, west and south – that's where we're going, south. I also have a satnav. And some food too: non-perishable of course. And some drinking water – very useful! There's plenty of water in the sea but you can't drink it really. Nice and wet.

Speaking of wet, I also have a waterproof jacket. I don't want to get too wet, do I? And, last but not least I have a captain's hat. How do I look?

Now, what other things do you think I might need for such an epic adventure? OK, it's time to set sail. See you later.
