    Jana and Mick - Sailing through Central America, highlights and challenges

    Jana McGeachy and Mick O'Keefe (Beef) are not your typical semi-retired cruising sailors. As young sailors, they've worked hard, saved up and sold up. I first found out about their ambitious cruising plans in Episode 73. Now 14-months later, I catch up with them at home in Australia to find out all about their sailing adventures through the Caribbean including; The Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Puerto Rico, Tortola, Antigua and The Virgin Islands. 
    They share the challenges of COVID-19 for cruisers, hiring a private plane to get out of Antigua, their engagement, their first cruising baby on the way and some essential boat maintenance stories.

    Dustin Reynolds - From bankrupted, double amputee to solo circumnavigator

    Dustin Reynolds - From bankrupted, double amputee to solo circumnavigator

    I have yet to meet anyone more inspirational than Dustin Reynolds when it comes to turning personal tragedy and financial ruin into a completely new path in life.
    Hit by a drunk driver and left for dead on the side of the road with his arm ripped from his body and life multiple threatening injuries, Dustin survived but the mounting health bills buried him financially. He made the decision to sell up and walk away from the business's he had diligently built, to rediscover a new life on the ocean in a $12,000 yacht with a goal of circumnavigating the planet. His story, determination and passion for deep connections with people is powerful and inspiring.

    Mark Chew - the joy of ocean sailing in classic wooden yachts

    Mark Chew - the joy of ocean sailing in classic wooden yachts

    Involved in ocean racing as a teenager and competing regularly as crew in all the Australian Blue Water Classics, Mark first became part of the wooden boat community 25 years ago with the purchase of the 1964 Sparkman and Stevens designed 'Cotton Blossom'. His romance with classic boats established, it was the purchase of his second boat, the 1956 Philip Rhodes designed 'Fair Winds' in Auckland that found him with a seaworthy vessel ready for the demands of both adventure and racing.
    Thousands of miles and many ocean crossings and races later, Mark also talks about the deep bond and lifelong friendships that you develop with your crew, especially when you sail together for decades.
