“Man, y’all are terrible at this!” I distinctly recall saying while talking to Jeffrey in this podcast interview about how our sail skills have improved the more offshore voyages we’ve done. On the way to Cuba, our friends back home were right: we were terrible. But on our way to the Bahamas, Phillip and I were much better thanks to our new offshore jib and a newly-anointed Captain Annie! Ahoy followers! My first post-Bahamas interview here for you, sharing a few of our fun Bahamas stories and misadventures. Many thanks to Jeffrey Wetting with Shooting the Breeze Sailing Podcast at The Escape Pods for reaching out to me and putting this piece together. Enjoy!
Hey hey HaveWind followers! A real treat for you here. Crazy Annie, at it again. I get so excited talking about our wicked sail to Cuba I can hear myself running out of breath. It just bursts out of me. This is my first podcast interview post-Cuba, talking about our sail across the Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf Stream to Cuba as well as the repair process we went through at the shipyard to be able to make that voyage and some discussion of our Atlantic-crossing in 2016. I think I talked Jeffrey into interviewing Yannick. I know you’ll be excited to hear from our faithful French captain! I hope you enjoy this conversation. Thank Jeffrey Wetting with Shooting the Breeze Sailing Podcast for putting this together!
And cracks me up in the photo Jeffrey chose of me for his website. Looks like there’s a crew member behind me on Libra puking over the side. Ha ha. While that is not far-fetched when you Sail on Libra, that was Greg Spivey (hello Greg!) just leaning over to film the waterline with his GoPro. Hilarious what it looks like he’s doing though. Way to go Jeffrey! : )
