John on Andy Schell’s On The Wind Podcast

Andy and Mia of 59 North came through Lunenburg in their new-to-them Swan 59 Ice Bear a few weeks ago. The four of us had a fun dinner together at our cottage and then I joined them on their boat to record a podcast.

We covered a bunch of subjects including:

In Case You Missed Them

This is the third of these podcasts I have done with Andy and Mia. Here are the other two, assuming you are crazy enough to want to binge-listen to me blathering on for over three hours:

Andy and Mia are doing a great job with these podcasts. I simply can’t recommend them too highly. A particular favourite of mine is this one with Alva Simon.

John was born and brought up in Bermuda and started sailing as a child, racing locally and offshore before turning to cruising. He has sailed over 100,000 miles, most of it on his McCurdy & Rhodes 56, Morgan's Cloud, including eight ocean races to Bermuda, culminating in winning his class twice in the Newport Bermuda Race. He has skippered a series of voyages in the North Atlantic, the majority of which have been to the high latitudes. John has been helping others go voyaging by sharing his experience for twenty years, first in yachting magazines and, for the last 12 years, as co-editor/publisher of AAC.

    Hej John!
    Just listen to The Wind Podcast.
    Very nice, entertaining and with serious questions and honest answers!
    I wish to bring forward my credo, written with felt pen on “SOL” s cockpit bulkhead : “Sailing is not all there is to living, – but – Sailing is living”
