New Podcast episode!


Fiona McGlynn and Robin Urquhart are the editors of Waterborne, an online magazine featuring millennial voices in sailing. They sailed their Dufour 35 “MonArk” from Vancouver, BC, across the Pacific to Australia, via Mexico, the Marquesas, and Tuamotus, to name a few. They share their thoughts on sailboat arbitrage, the dangers of sleep deprivation and importance of finding a watch schedule that works, millennial participation in sailing, the orthodoxy of sailing culture, and of the creation and goals of Waterborne.

Debbie and Brian have voyaged aboard their 30ft Allied Seawind since 2014, crossing the Atlantic 4 times and sailing down the coast of South America through Brazil and Uruguay. They talk about the gear they installed and modifications they made during a major refit, the challenges and rewards of travelling under sail, and they speak eloquently and earnestly of their experiences at sea.

Episode 20: ≈Soultide≈



Clay and Ally sailed their Catalina 27 “Soultide” down the ICW from Virginia to the Florida Keys. They have an inspiring story and relate some funny anecdotes about their days living aboard. We reminisce about meeting down in Key Largo, dodging mosquitos, running from the cold, learning how to work on engines, and the adjustment back to living ashore. Clay and Ally are musicians, built their own house, have recently acquired a 50 year old Columbia 36, and we are fortunate to count them among our friends. Enjoy the episode!

Episode 19: ≈Dinghy Dreams≈

Emily Greenburg has single-handed her Pearson Ariel down the East Coast- from Lake Champlain, through the Hudson River, down the Jersey Coast and Chesapeake Bay, and into the ICW to Florida. We talk about preparing small boats for long-term sailing, her formative sailing experience on an offshore delivery, the satisfaction of working on your own boat, and the realities of sexism in the sailing world and beyond. She keeps a log of her travels at the always-interesting www.dinghydreams.com and is on Instagram @dinghydreams. Enjoy!


Episode 18: ≈Adventures of Tarka≈

Interview time! Bryan Rolfe is sailing his 27 foot Albin Vega across the Carribean, bound for Panama, the Pacific Ocean, Polynesia, and ultimately a circumnavigation. We talk about life aboard a small boat, new-old ways of getting weather information offshore, preparing a boat for oceans, the sobering reality of coral reefs today, and much more! Bryan has a very enjoyable and well-produced series of videos on YouTube and he is donating all proceeds from his videos to the Coral Reef Alliance. He’s also an all-around interesting guy. Check it out!

Also, a few things of note. During the interview we talk about his affiliate site, which is going to be discontinued and rolled into his blog. I will endeavor to get a link to his article about using a laptop to decode weatherfax offshore. Also, I referenced in the interview a buddy with a diesel powered water maker- I’m fairly certain that it is in fact powered by a small gasoline engine. Everything else we say is 100% factual. 🙂
