Thank you for listening to Eat.Laugh.Sail!
This episode is a very special one for me. I record while sailing SV Red Shift for the first time. And my guest is the original owner of my sailboat in 1978, Billie! She was a serious competitor around the Puget Sound, while racing with a long standing all female race crew, and won 1st place after adjusted time from Port Townsend, WA. to Honolulu Hawaii, with just her and her 20 year old son Bill!
I show Billie the boat and take her out sailing for the first time on Red Shift since 1989. We talk about the history of the boat, her race to Hawaii, and the preparation leading up to it.
I apologize for the poor audio quality. this is all a learning experience for me and I had my recorder switch itself to the wrong format, making my card fill up super fast. but I had to make it work because I couldn’t NOT use it.
