The 2018 Annapolis Sailboat Show, as seen from the Deck Above Pussers.

Welcome to The Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast (STBSP) episode 97, the 2018 Annapolis Sailboat Show Wrap up, part 2! Back in early October we spent a great weekend hanging around the 2018 Annapolis Sailboat Show, held in downtown/Ego Alley Annapolis, got to see some friends and interview some vendors, even had a Pain Killer from Pussers or three. This is part 2 of 2, for episode one, go back and listen to episode 96! This time around we chat with John Franta from Colligo Marine, Craig Summers from, who has a great Wireless Anenometer that we have a link to over on our Affiliates and Links page, we see whats up with John Heinz from the Leukemia Cup Regatta’s, who just won an award as the top sailor/fundraiser for the three charity regatta’s held in Annapolis every year, we then stop by the Sta Lok rigging hardware booth and talk with Julian and Terrence who are your go to guys for anything traditional wire rope rigging related hardware and fittings, and we finish up by talking with Capt. Michael Pittinger, who we had on back in January, he was at the show manning the Integrity Yacht Sales booth, but we chat about lots of stuff, from boats for sale, how to get your boat ready to sell, getting things winterized, and finishing up the work on Lissadell.
I also talk about listening to some other pods, such as The Bonnie Boat Podcast who interview Fiona from Waterborne Magazine, and All Things Sport who chatted with Volvo Ocean Race Sailor Abby Ehler. I was also recently invited to speak at a dinner for the Rockville Power and Sail Squadron coming up on Nov. 14th. I hope that turns out ok, I’ve never done anything like that! Anyway, Like and Share and I hope you enjoy the episode!
