It’s the rare mainstream interview that gets deep into what sailing is all about, and this CBC piece does exactly that. It’s a nearly-hour-long conversation about the Deep South between the presenter and a diverse group of folks, including RTW racers Dee Caffari and Derek Hatfield as well as solo circumnavicruiser Glenn Wakefield and Vendee Globe historian and author Derek Lundy (<a href=”http://www.dereklundy.com/Godforsaken_Sea.html”>The Godforsaken Sea</a>).
Thanks to SA’er ‘QBF’ for the tip.

Our favorite blonde bombshell hits the airwaves with another edition of Adventures of a Sailor Girl; for this weekend’s edition, Nic Douglass mixes rock and funk songs with some of Australia’s biggest sailing talents.
At 7:05 – She’s got one of the winningest one-design pros in history on the line and a longtime friend to SA; Darren ‘Twirler’ Jones, a show regular called in from the farm, ahead of going to the Farr 40 Worlds.
At 18:52 – She spoke with Josh Chant, the founder of 33 South Racing, about the scholarship program and where the program is headed (including an Extreme 40).
At 39:18 – Nic got ‘the big get’ with ‘the Big Fella’ – Australian AC Team CEO Iain Murray who took some time out of his busy schedule to chat about the sails, foiling cats, and the America’s Cup.
At 53:05 – Nic gets into the CYCA winter series with her own report from sailing on the Harbour.
Enjoy, and if you dig Nic like we dig Nic, go give her some Facebook love over here.
