    Rodney Keenan - Founder of Evolution Sails on the 'high-tech. arms race'

    In this episode I meet with Rodney Keenan, founder of Evolution Sails, at his incredible high-tech membrane plant in Auckland, New Zealand about sail planning for my new project: Silver Fern.
    Rodney shares his advice on sail planning and the background story of how he built a global sail making business that sends sails to customers all over the world. As a 7-year client of Evolution, I was fascinated to find out first-hand about the latest trends in carbon/technora membrane sail technology and whether this next step up makes sense for my 72 foot expedition/racing project and I discover how sail making has changed over the past 20 years.

    Vernon Deck - COVID19 Cruising Challenges in Indonesia

    Vernon Deck is a great example of jumping headfirst into sailing and just figuring it out as you go along. We initially interviewed Vernon in episode 68 and discovered how he purchased a Sayer 37 yacht 'Schiehallion' and before heading offshore to Solomon Islands, then onto Papua New Guinea and then Indonesia.
    This time we catch-up with Vernon to find out about cruising Indonesia and the challenges for cruising live-aboard sailors with COVID19 and the border issues.

    Coastguard Nelson (NZ) - getting found and staying alive

    Coastguard Nelson (NZ) - getting found and staying alive

    David Hows and Phil Jarvis join the crew of Coastguard Nelson for a post-rescue debrief session, followed by a recorded podcast interview to discuss how yachties can learn lessons from previous Coastguard rescue case studies and tips on getting found and staying alive at sea.
    It's easy to assume when sailing in calm weather, that it will never happen to you, but the chat with the crew of Coastguard Nelson reinforces that having the right safety equipment, keeping it serviced and knowing how to use it could save your life one day.
