Greetings internet user! This podcast is an excuse to pick the brains of seasoned sailors and an attempt to distill the experience of others for the benefit of you the listener, as well as my own. I’m interested in talking to sailors about their motivations, their techniques and experiences, and their reasons for spending time on the water. I hope you’ll check it out and enjoy!
Stay safe and healthy everyone!

An abyssal journey through inner space.
A retrospective of the past year's interviews.
John Herlig fixed up his 50 year old Rawson 30 “Ave Del Mar” and took her sailing down the ICW, across to the Bahamas, and then off the beaten path a bit, visiting Haiti and Jamaica before returning to Florida. We speak about his thoughts on John Vigor’s “black box” of seamanship theory, nautical superstitions and the allure of travel. John had a podcast on “Boat Radio,” released a few under his own flag, and has an upcoming podcast called "Seabird" that will be released through Cuento.co He can found online at avedelmar.com More recently, having to return home to work, he stored “Ave” on the hard in Green Turtle Key in the Bahamas where she was standing when Hurricane Dorian made landfall.
Sean D'Epagnier has been sailing the world aboard his engine-less Bristol 27 "Alexandra" for the 8 years. Heading west from California and Mexico, he crossed the Pacific, the Indian, and the Atlantic Oceans with many fabled landfalls along the way. He is also the creator of Pypilot- an open source marine autopilot designed to make autopilots more affordable, modular, and collaborative in the spirit of OpenCPN, a project he is also involved in.
Awesome podcast and super informative while maintaining a casual conversation
Best most authentic boating podcast
I love Chris, he has the best most authentic boating podcast in my opinion. I'm even an evil powerboater/trailer/fisherman and I still like it.
Great learnings for Young Salt sailors!
Great podcast for a greenhorn “Young Salt” like myself who has been bitten by the sailing bug. Avid lifelong boater in the Puget Sound, but relatively new to sailing, I appreciate the even-keel stories of cruisers, lessons learned, and everything in between as I’m trying to absorb as much as possible from the toil of others. Has a comfortable and genuine conversational format that goes with the flow. Thanks for the education and effort Chris - keep up the good work!
