Welcome to Episode 104 of The Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast (STBSP)! This episode we chat with Sailor and Author of the new book “In Bed With The Atlantic,” Kitiara Pascoe. Kit, as she is sometimes called, spent a few years as a young woman from the UK, sailing across the Atlantic, around the Caribbean, Central America, and then back. She is a travel writer and blogger, and has written many magazine articles about lots of trips to lots of places, as well as sailing trips and tips, and the new book. You can check all this out at her website, Kitiarapascoe.com.
We chat about the trip in detail, about how without much experience she got her feet wet sailing, taking off without much of a plan, and how deciding to take off for a big trip across the Atlantic can impact your life in different ways. We talk about her blog series on “Boat Hitchhiking,” her other travel and adventure stories, as well as her work as a Ghost Writer.
If you have a story you would like to tell, but just can’t find the time…… Who on earth would be in that situation???? Hmmm, anyway, if you are interested in working with a professional writer to finish your storytelling project, be sure to talk with Kitiara. In her words, “Memoirs and books about sailing are so valuable for the community as we all have to start somewhere and learn from each other’s mistakes!”
You can find more information about the Ghost Writing process and hire Kitiara via The Literary Lifeboat.
We also give a quick update from the Spring Open House at Annapolis Yacht Sales, where they are premiering the First US Built Beneteau Oceanis 46.1 on March 23rd, 2019. The event starts at 10am and will feature speaker Kate Dawson, Boat tours of the new 46.1, as well as Brokerage and other new boats on the premises, refreshments, raffles, etc. The event is rain or shine and open to the media and public.
