1. Let's do it!
Jack Griggs stands on his boat.
The wind is strong and his boat moves quickly over the sea.
A big, white bird goes past and makes a noise. 'Keyaaaa', it cries.
Jack smiles and says:'Hello, bird. How are you, today?'
Jack's friends laugh and give some fish to the bird.
'Ah,' says Jack. 'Hungry, I see.'
Jack's friends are Max and Sasha, and his wife's name is Tonya.
'I am hungry, too,' says Jack.
'Sandwiches and drinks everybody? Tonya. Can you steer?'
Half an hour later they are eating.
'What are we going to do now?' asks Jack.
'Oh, I am going to read my book. Then I'm going to sleep,' says Tonya.
'No - what about tomorrow?...Next month?'...Next year?
Jack looks at everyone. 'We have lots of money from our old business, but ...'
'We can start another business,' says Max.
'A sailing business?' says Sasha.
'I don't want to work any more,' says Tonya. 'We don't need to work.'
'OK, listen to me,' says Jack. 'I am thinking about sailing around the world.'
Max, Tonya and Sasha look at Jack. 'What? From here to Australia?' asks Tonya.
'Of course,' says Jack. He is getting very excited now.
'Max, what do you think?'
'I think we must talk about is,' says Max
They talk for hours. It is night when Max, Sasha and Tonya say excitedly:'Ok, Let's do it!'
