Right on the mark - Excellent for the cruising sailor

I'm an advid listern and have covered all Andy's podcasts over the past 2 years (On the Wind and this new offshoot How I think about Sailing). They are entertaining and have greatly enriched my sailing life. Andy's podcast introduced me to new ideas, history, places, and key people involved in sailing. Every episode is a goldmine for new avenues to explore (and dream). From people to learn about, boat systems to consider, other online (podcasts/websites) to explore, books to read, ideas to consider regarding seamanship, etc! Most of all Andy's podcast has helped me become a much better sailor. He shares a perspective that's made me a more competent and safe. Maybe one day I'll even have the opportunity to sail with him. I cannot thank Andy enough for this wonderful contribution to sailing. Go check out his new podcast"On the Wind" - it's a great complement to "How Ithink about sailing".
