    Persistence...?

    Persistence...?

    In this episode, I finally head back toward my home port, meet some "old friends" (I didn't say they were human!), and am stubbornly persistent as usual. Hopefully that works out okay.

Inspiration

For a couple of years now I have had this ideology of casting off.always been fascinated with the lifestyle but lack any kind of experience. Worried a bit about starting out at 47 I took the leap, a Columbia 34 same age as me. After listening to your podcast for the first time it has set me a bit at ease know all my mistakes or “learning experiences” are all part of the journey. Look very forward to hearing about more of how not to sail . Awesome podcast
