Responsible sailing

Thank you Mia from 59 North. Your spot on statement of not using plastic especially when traveling and enjoying islands that have no place for garbage and all these boat that want to live low maintenance on a boat traveling around and asking for Patreon support but they use plastic and take garbage to the little remote places they visit. These sailors have the opportunity to teach these places how to be responsible with plastic especially when they live by the sea. instead they Fish their oceans, eat their coconuts and dump their sewers yet talk like they care about the heap of garbage in the ocean. Thank you Mia for your comment about going to Island bbq’s and taking your own plate and silverware. Hopefully all the “big” Youtube sailors who are now having babies they don’t use plastic silverware OR disposable diapers which anyone who travels see’s them everywhere . In short I loved your comment about living by that better standard. Your podcast is Great fun and interesting.

Enjoyable and informative. Could be a lot tighter.

Overall enjoyable for anyone interested in this niche topic. I’ve learned a lot! I wish they spent time editing and making it tighter so that episodes were a little less rambling. I think it’s inspiring that they’re living their dreams, authentic life and all that, but it’s also a bit hard to stomach a bunch of affluent white folks sitting around and talking about themselves and all of the fabricated adversity they’ve conquered. Complicated world, I guess!

Awesome podcast

I have been listening to ON THE WIND with Andy and Mia for over a year now. This podcast is informative and is great for me who is new to sailing. I cant wait to go sailing with 59 North in the future.
