This episode is a Bonus Episode of The Sailing Podcast with Linus Wilson of Slow Boat Sailing.
After talking to Linus in the last episode of the podcast, Episode 64, Linus kindly provided his audio version of the first chapter of “Slow Boat to the Bahamas” for me to share with listeners of The Sailing Podcast.
We also take the chance to let you know about the creation of a Patreon page for The Sailing Podcast.
If you haven’t heard of Patreon it is a site where you can donate money to support your favourite creators. There are other websites designed to crowd fund or fundraise for one-off projects such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo and GoFundMe but the difference with Patreon is you are able to support on an episode by episode basis.
The link for us is www.patreon.com/sailing and if you have a look there is a ‘become a patron’ button – all supporters are called patrons, but before you click on the donate button you might like to have a quick look at the video Carina and I put together at the Noosa River one day about why we are on Patreon.
I have set up a series of rewards such as:
- getting a Sailing Podcast sticker
- getting an Kindle edition of a book from one of our guests
- being able to post a link to your sailing or personal blog on resources page of www.thesailingpodcast.com
- and there is a donation level that entitles you to receive a sailing podcast T-Shirt and I will be putting a few designs up for a vote by the Patreon members
I hope you can see some value in the podcast and while it will continue to be free we hope you can join us on Patreon to support the show and keep the episodes rolling out.
Slow Boat Sailing
You can find Linus Wilson at www.slowboatsailing.com – and Linus has another book out called “How to sail around the world part-time” so you might like to check that out as well and you can find him on Facebook – search for slow boat sailing.
I have a couple of interviews lined up – firstly with Matt Rutherford who is preparing for another Ocean Research expedition. I hope to hear about the last trip they did and what is coming up this year. After this I have an interview scheduled with Louis Hoock from Alaska adventure sailing and I can’t wait to hear some of his stories because I checked out his website – www.aksailing.com and there is a picture of the yacht sitting at the base of a glacier and it is just amazing to imagine being there.
Thanks for listening and I hope you have a great day and thank you for joining us on our journey
