    The Mariner Podcast #50: My 30th Atlantic Crossing

    This episode I finish up the story of the delivery of the Maxi ‘Weddell‘ to Nova Scotia. Whilst the voyage its‘ self was not very eventful (just the way I like them!) there was lots to consider as this was effectively my first passage with a new (to me) vessel.

    The Mariner Podcast #46: Sailing Alone Around the World Chapters 13 & 14

    In this episode I continue reading Capt. Joshua Slocum's excellent narrative of his solo circumnavigation of the world in 1895.
    In chapters 13 & 14 Slocum leaves Samoa, sailing to Australia and then to Tasmania.  Australia is an opportunity for Slocum to relax a little; he is on the far side of the world from his starting point in Boston and is once again amongst friends and those who know of his voyage, all of whom are keen to assist him.
