Perennially disappointed online viewers for the Sydney Hobart race start now have something more intelligent to listen to than the typical mainstream Aussie tripe, and it’s all thanks to three Aussie sailor chicks, at least one of them a long time Anarchist. We salute Nix, Mel, and Nic;the girls behind the one-hour “Sailing Chix with Nix” radio show which runs every Saturday morning at 8 AM on 88.7 or 90.3 FM in Sydney as well as streamed live at this link.
The girls announced last week that they’ll be broadcasting live for the start of the Hobart, and a brief listen to their works shows it to be educated and high-quality; we’ll be tuning in on boxing day for sure. Keep an eye on their site for more details, and here’s a full recent broadcast for your listening pleasure. And huge props to the girls; our Sailor Chicks of the Week, for putting in the hard work to do something interesting for the sport.
