Dear Diary,

I have accepted this silly challenge to sail around the world in 80 days.

I am on the yacht called Mermaid and I am not alone. My office assistant and good friend, Pete, has joined me. I have given him the nickname 'Passepartout' because he goes everywhere with me! He's a good sailor too.

But there is a problem. I have discovered a leak in the yacht and we must head for port before we sink.
