FurledSails.com Podcast #120 Capt. Robby Smith

Furled Sails is a great site for small boat sailing Podcasts.

In episode #120 they interview Capt. Robby Smith. When he was young and he sailed a Newport 16 down the East Coat, around the Bahamas and even Jamaica. He talks about sinking off the Jamaica Coast, returning to Glouster and building another boat to sail the Bahamas. There are lessons to be learned for Newport sailors wanting to voyage offshore. Lessons about buoyancy, locking the keel, shifting your weight but most of all about all the wonderful places this little boat can carry you to.

Check out the rest of the FurledSails website. Christy and Noel Davis have interviewed some of my childhood heroes, the people that got me interested in sailing. I spent many hours listening to the podcasts while working on my boat.
