Our gal pal Nic Douglass continues to burn up the internet airwaves with her Adventures of a Sailor Girl radio show, and this week, she says her show was ‘massive!’ We don’t know about that, but we do know that we love this petite blonde dinghy sailor’s attitude and pluck, and encourage you to give her show a listen. It’s an hour’s worth of mostly music peppered by interviews and monologue about racing sailboats. Nic tells us about her show:
At 5:36, we caught up with the awesome Howie Hamlin after his 5o5 North Americans win, and all that is ahead for him this year. So many adventures to draw from that no doubt make him the fantastic sailor that he is today, and always great to talk to!
At 18:00, I managed to catch Red Bull Youth AC skipper Jason Waterhouse straight from the Alps at the GC32 Austria Cup – too awesome! With his team, skippered by Sebastian Cole, they had two bullets just before I spoke to him. Great to hear that all is going well for this dedicated cat sailor.
At 36:13, last but definitely not least, Stacey Jackson, a great friend, called in from the Canary Islands to touch base about all that is happening for Team SCA leading up to the Volvo Ocean Race. She has promised to be in touch regularly, after the Canary Island race, and also following the UK/Ireland race when all the boats should be out racing. We chatted for a decent amount of time off air as well – and it is just amazing to hear what she has been up to.
At 56:30, I talked about my adventure for the week, involving a very serious story about M&M’s post-racing at the CYCA Winter Series race today!
