Sharps Island Light, Outside of the Choptank River.

Greetings podcast fans! This Episode is a hostfull of one! Me, Myself, and I. There is no guest this week, but it is kind of a special episode, being number 75! I never thought I would ever have 75 episodes, it is such an honor to be able to keep doing this, and I hope you all enjoy! The episode will be an intro, a musical break from our party at HPYC back in April as we sit around the bar with the Band North East Corners and some friends like Steve Detwiler, and we jam out impromptu style to The Rolling Stones “Sympathy For the Devil.”

I end up telling the tale of our weeklong Chesapeake Bay Adventure back in September aboard S/V Pegasus as we travel to Annapolis, Oxford, and Worton Creek, all with a dog and enough food to feed a crew for a month……..

Next up we will be covering the United States Sailboat Show from Annapolis, Md, which started on 10/5. I will be there over the weekend, and hope to meet up with a bunch of salty sailors and fans!

STBSP Ep, 74. Karen Haver skippers her all female Crew in the 2017 Sippy Cup Race

Karen Haver at the helm of S/V Bottom Line.

Greetings podcast fans! This Episode we try out a new microphone for our introductions and chat with Karen Haver of S/V Bottom Line, which she owns with her husband Steve and keeps in Havre De’Grace, MD. They ran the 2016 edition of the Sippy Cup with two of Steve’s Thursday Night Racing buddies, and she decided that this year she was going to run the race with an all women’s crew from the Tidewater/BaySail/Havre De’Grace home base. She’s learned a lot about sailing in the past three years aboard S/V Bottom Line, and in the classes taken in the years prior, but she had never skippered the boat alone or with crew, much less in an overnight race. They were well fed, had a blast, finished the race, learned and experienced a lot during the race. Karen and Steve hosted me aboard on a Sunday afternoon and we had a great time chatting about the race, the women, and future plans. Check out Baysail, the Women Who Sail, and The Magenta Project.

STBSP, Ep. 73 2017 Sippy Cup Race

Errant Co-Host Chris Smoker, Skipper Jeffrey, and Mate Nora Seggel at the awards ceremony after the race.

Join Skipper Jeffrey Wettig, Nora Seggel, and Chris Smoker aboard S/V Pegasus as we compete in the 2017 Edition of the Walden Rigging Sippy Cup! The race was run from 7pm August 4th through the night on the Chesapeake Bay from Elk Neck in the North East River to Annapolis. It was a heck of a race with lots of wind up until the Bay Bridge, then it got shifty as we passed underneath in the dark, and finished just as things were starting to lighten up in the East. Top that off with a Crab Boat Kerfuffle, and a motor that refused to co-operate the next day for the trip home. Even after all that, it was still a Heck of a Race! Hear our before, during, after, after after, and after after after conversations! I’m sure I’ve already divulged the results, but I’ll leave the story to unfold as it happened. Warning, there is a lot of background noise to some of this, whether it be wind, or the motor, it may be best listened to with a pair of headphones, as it may be difficult or annoying to hear the conversation otherwise. I hope you enjoy! Sail On!

STBSP Ep. 70, Sailing Miss Lonestar Aubrey Wilson

pegasus_sunset2_logo

Sailing Miss Lonestar, Aubrey Wilson

This episode we talk face to face with Sailing Miss Lonestar Aubrey Wilson and Stefan (Sp?) who visited me at Hances Point for an interview. She bought a boat on the Bohemia River, MD for 1 US Dollar. It is a Cal 2-29 from 1976 and it was a mess! She has spent the past two months or so rehabbing the boat, and Linus Wilson from the Slow Boat Sailing Podcast was nice enough to tag me on a Facebook post about the Splash in this past weekend. I had no idea this was going on in my neck of the woods. I had seen Sailing Miss Lonestar video’s on Youtube in the past, but had never caught on with the series. Now I’m hooked! I think they are going to have an interesting time of learning while doing as they head North towards Cape Cod and the Massachusetts Maritime Institute where they plan on making a commercial and taking classes.

The Crew of R/V Ault in Greenland 2017.

Welcome to The Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast episode number 68! Our guest this episode is Matt Rutherford of The Ocean Research Project. This is the third time chatting with Matt, he is such an interesting guy and always a fun conversation. He spent the past two summers on research missions aboard his home/research vessel S/V Ault up on the western shores of Greenland. Weathering life threatening storms, performing tedious research tasks, enduring the logistical nightmares of supplying such an endeavor in remote places, and sailing the awesome beauty of the Arctic.

Between research sailing missions, running a Non-Profit organization, giving talks to places like the New York Explorers club, and delivering yachts, he also is now a Yacht Broker for Rogue Wave Yacht Sales, or rather the Rogue Wave Division of David Walters Yachts, located in Annapolis, MD. If you are serious about buying or selling an honest to goodness Blue Water cruising boat, see Matt and he will steer you in the right direction.

STBSP Ep. 67, Burning o’the socks 3, Tom Kennedy Salty Sailor, and North East Corners!

Tom Kennedy playing drums during the Burning of the Socks at HPYC 2017

This episode we visit our 2017 opening day party at Hances Point, with an interview of one of my most fun boat club buddies, Tom Kennedy. It’s always a blast to chat with him, telling tall tales and lies, or are they true? Cracking wise and always with a story to tell, I was unaware of some of the offshore voyaging he’s done in the recent past. We were chatting for a half an hour before it dawned on me that we should be recording this. He’s a salty sailor, a character for sure, a history buff, and our house drummer when it comes to parties like this one!

Burning of the socks 2017 at HPYC.

We go towards the fire with socks in our hands as us Hances Point SWOGs burn our socks for the equinox, or some such like it, raise the flags, and set off some humongous booms from the field artillery pieces brought by our civil war re-enactor friends. See the blog post here! Our musical entertainment was the band North East Corners, who put on a great show, and hung around after for some hootenanny action.

STBSP Ep. 66, Chat with Paul Matrangola, yacht broker from Tidewater Yachts, Havre D’grace, MD.

Yacht Broker Paul Matrangola from Tidewater Yachts, Havre D’grace, MD.

Welcome to Episode 66 featuring our chat with local yacht broker Paul Matrangola from Tidewater Yachts/Tidewater Marina in Havre D’grace, MD. I’ve been getting newsletter emails from Paul and Tidewater for years now, and thought it was high time to go check out what they have to offer and how they operate a yacht brokerage on the upper Chesapeake Bay. He also happens to have my current dream boat on offer in his “Boat Show” style deck showroom, a 1989 Pearson 33-2 named Arrow. I’ve been back and forth about buying this boat for a while now, as evidenced in my chat with TeddyJ on the Sail Loot Podcast a while back. I wanted to check out the boat, but I really wanted to make the connection with another well regarded local sailing enthusiast and industry professional in my local area, Havre D’grace being about 15 minutes down I-95 from North East, and just over from one of my “On the water” haunts, Sand Island. I hope you enjoy our conversation about who is buying and selling boats, what kind of boats are they buying and selling, and what is so great about the upper Chesapeake Bay anyway?

Sail Loot Podcast with Teddy J and Jeffrey S. Wettig

Hey everyone, I was recently a guest on Teddy J’s Sail Loot podcast! Teddy and I met back during the boat show in Annapolis 2016 and had been emailing back and forth for a while, so it was great to be a guest on his podcast and talk about money and how much it takes to keep a sailboat on the Bay, and do the kind of sailing I do, on my days off and a few weeks a year. Of course we talk about our dreams of bigger and better boats and cruising the islands and far off exotic locations, and how we plan on getting there in due time…. Its a fun conversation, so join us!

He’s got some great sailing stories about sailing on his home turf of the Ohio River, Lake Kentucky, and some of the Great Lakes. For a flatlander, he’s done some fine big water sailing.

Derrick Cogburn sails the Bay.

Welcome to the 54th episode of The Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast featuring Chesapeake Bay sailor Derrick Cogburn. Derrick has just started sailing on his own Paceship PY26 last year, and has already crewed on an offshore boat going from Annapolis to Boston. He’s a really interesting guy, a fan of the podcast, and travels the world as a Professor from American University. He started appreciating boats while in the Great Lakes area, and caught the sailing bug when moving to Washington, D.C. He signed up for courses at the Annapolis Sailing School, learning on the Rainbow 24’s, and last year went out and bought his own Keel boat. Anyone that is thinking about getting in to sailing and the community surrounding it, should listen to Derrick’s testimonial.

STBSP Ep. 52, The Rehabilitation of Skipjack Martha Lewis

pegasus_sunset2_logo

THe Bowsprit support of Skipjack Martha Lewis

Greetings Sailors and Podcast fans. This week we travel to Havre De’Grace, Maryland to check on the Rehabilitation of a true Chesapeake Bay Classic, The Skipjack Martha Lewis. Part of the authentic Chesapeake Bay Oyster Fleet, Martha fell on some rough times a few years ago with deteriorating planking, causing her to be pulled from the water, necessitating years of hard work by a dedicated few. The Chesapeake Heritage Conservancy is the non profit who oversees her operation, and its board President Brady Stroh was nice enough to show us around and talk about all these efforts, and what needs to happen for this Good Old Boat to get back to work. Stroh, along with local shipwright Rafe Weber and a handful of other dedicated workers and volunteers, hope to have her back to her glorious self by the end of this year, holding a Grand Relaunching next April. Fundraising efforts are ongoing and volunteers sorely needed to finish the project, find out more at www.chcvolunteers.com

Dobbs and Suzanne Fryberger from Walden Rigging.

Greetings Folks, welcome to Episode 51 of The Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast, featuring a conversation with Dobbs and Suzanne from Walden Rigging. They operate out of the North East, MD area, and service boats all over the upper Chesapeake Bay, from the north banks of the Patapsco to the Bohemia River. Dobbs is a former street performer who decided it was a good idea to build a sailboat from scratch and sail it down the Susquehanna River (Dams be Damned) all the way to the Potomac. They never quite made it, but never stopped trying, eventually rehabbing a Venture 22 into a venerable racer/cruiser. Through the years they have been liveaboards, cruisers, picking up work experience along the way, eventually setting up shop in North East, and have become the pre-emanent riggers on the upper Bay. Such a fun time chatting and hanging out with these guys, they treated us to a exquisite breakfast, where we chat about all sort of things, including the overnight race they run, the Sippy Cup, running concurrently with the Governors Cup, this year being held on August 5th.

Mike and Rebecca from Zero To Cruising

Welcome Peeps! Happy 4/20 day or a celebration for another year on this plane of existence for yours truly! Today it is my sublime pleasure to release to you my conversation with Mike and Rebecca Sweeney from Zero To Cruising Dot Com! Mike and Rebecca decided back in 2008 to chuck it all, business, house, etc, and buy a boat and go cruising permanently! They bought a PDQ32 catamaran and headed through the canals from Canada to New York, through the Chesapeake Bay, down the ICW and to the Caribbean. I was under the impression they circumnavigated, after an absence from following them, but alas, they did not. But they are planning on heading to Cape Horn, ran a charter boat for a while, and have crewed on boats to the Galapagos and been up and down Island many, many times. They are adventurers, value fitness and living life to the fullest and aren’t afraid to Blog about it! They’ve even written a hiking guide to the islands!

Greetings Folks! Welcome to part two of our conversation with North East, MD area Boat Surveyor and former Schooner Captain Ken Henry.

STBSP Ep. 45, Part 1 with Capt. Ken Henry

pegasus_sunset2_logoGreetings! Welcome to this episode of The Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast with Captain Ken Henry of North East, MD. Capt. Ken is a well rounded individual to say the least, well steeped in the Marine Arts. He’s a surveyor, sailor, captain, instructor, musician, all sorts of things. I had the chance to meet Capt. Ken last fall when looking at his Bayfield 32 which he had for sale, what I didn’t know is that he used to belong to Hances Point, my yacht club down the road, and his vast experiences in life. We hit it off and chatted for a good long time in the galley of the Bayfield, and I was determined to stop back around and interview him at some point in the off season, and here we have it! After two months of packing, moving, and unpacking, I finally got the chance to go check on the boat and stop by to chat with Capt. Ken. Check out the video from 1992 of an NBC Nightly News report on Capt. Ken and the Schooner Francis Crow, https://youtu.be/5Ogtsd8vzJo.

Annie Dike “Keys to the Kingdom”

Welcome to 2016! This episode of The Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast features author and sailor Annie Dike, whose newest sailing book “Keys to the Kingdom” was just released last month. We chat about how she came, very recently, to the sailing world and how she’s been able to write two sailing books in the past three years.

“Salt of a Sailor,” her first sailing book chronicles her second time ever on a sailboat, crossing the Gulf of Mexico, a delivery trip after buying a Niagra 35 in southern Florida. “Keys to the Kingdom” follows Annie on her second Gulf of Mexico passage back across the Gulf, as well as flashing back to her personal journey from being an unhappily married, fast paced lawyer, living in a McMansion, to wandering adrift into a Bar where she meets sailor and partner Phillip and casts off into the great unknown aboard that same Niagra 35.

He is interested in getting into the Podcast game ala “The Startup Podcast” which he turned us on to, which will chronicle how they let loose the lines and headed out to sea.

Hootenanny Ep. 9 featuring Matt Mcandrew and BetaPlay

Matt McAndrew

Welcome to the 9th episode of the Hootenanny Down The Hall Music Podcast featuring former Voice contestant Matt Mcandrew and California band BetaPlay. Both were on tour with The Plain White T’s recently at the Baltimore Sound Stage, and I was able to catch an interview with Tommy from BetaPlay. Unfortunately I was unable to chat with Matt but maybe some other time. I’m starting to realize that trying to interview artists at shows is a pretty difficult thing to pull off. I am also hoping that the verbal okay from Matt’s sister and tour manager Meredith doesn’t get me in hot water by posting parts of his live show. That’s why I always try to get face to face with the artists!

Welcome to the 39th episode of The Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast in which we have a conversation with sailing and cruising legend Lin Pardey. We caught up with Lin at the United States Sailboat Show, in Annapolis, MD back in October of 2015. We talk a bit about her new endeavors in book publishing, with her new title “Voyaging with Kids,” how she is really and truly a sailor and writer completely by accident, and how life has continued to be interesting and exciting even after all these years.

It was a pleasure to meet up with Lin, one of my original wishful thinking guests here on the podcast.

Also featured in this episode is a song by Good Old Boat and Chesapeake Bay Sailor Tom Wells. He’s been on the podcast before on the boat show episodes. He has a few CD’s available for sale, the one I purchased is called “Fun on the Foam.”

The show is a must see for anyone interested in sailing, or power boating during the United States Powerboat Show, which is held the following weekend, with a Cruising University held in between. There are plenty boats to peruse, seminars to attend, vendors to check out, and lots of local flavor to enjoy. Check it out!

pegasus_sunset2_logoThis episode of the Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast finds us sailing down the North East River on a blustery day with Mom and Chuck. We talk about getting into sailing, and how to manage your recreational activities when you are thinking about buying a boat and afterwards. We also chat about chartering possibilities of chartering out west, not that we know anything about it, and the good old days when we were learning to canoe back in the day.

It’s always good to chat with your mother, we all should do it more often!

Ep. 33, My Cross Podcast with Franz from Medsailor.com

Franz Amussen

Greetings folks! This episode is a special one!

I had the chance a week or so ago to Cross Podcast with Franz Amussen from The Sailing in the Mediterranean Podcast. He interviewed me and then I interviewed him, and we chatted a bit in between. His interview with me is available over at http://www.medsailor.com/?p=1803.

Franz was a great guest and host and it was super interesting to chat with about his sailing experiences on the Med, how he built his 32ft. Channel Cutter from a bare hull, at the same time as building a vacation home, his sail racing on the Great Salt Lake, and his Trans Atlantic Crossing almost 20 years ago. The past 18 years or so his boat has been kept in and around the Mediterranean, and his hopes are to sail in the direction of the Black Sea, before potentially heading back towards the eastern half around Italy and Spain.

Franz also produces financial/investment podcasts and American Sailing Association classwork study guides that will help you pass the ASA sailing exams, check his website for more information about them.

I also love the introduction to his episodes, hear it and you’ll know, “Sometimes you just have to Say…….”

STBSP Ep. 32, Catch up with Shaun and Julia from Shaunsailing and the Three Sheets to the Wind web series on YouTube

Three Sheets to the Wind at ShaunSailing

Welcome to episode 32 of the Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast! This episode we chat with Shaun and Julia from Shaunsailing.com about their web series entitled “Three Sheets to the Wind,” whereby they start to refit and sail their Bayfield 25 up in Parry Sound and Georgian Bay, Ontario, Canada. I stumbled upon this web series when looking for something to watch on YouTube. The title caught my attention, as I had released a cassette tape of same name for the band I managed back in the day, The Incoherents. I had to check it out.

I found it intriguing, and loved the fact that they were refitting a smaller boat, doing projects similar to ones I’ve done, or will have to do at some point, and they ran into the same stupid issues I do. Plus there’s craft beers, and sailing! What’s not to love?

Follow the series over at Shaunsailing on YouTube, and also check out the previous series about crossing the Pacific as crew on a Hylas 49, and checking out used boats, as they search for a boat prior to purchasing the Bayfield 25.

Hootenanny Down the Hall Music Podcast, Episode 0008, Panic is Perfect and The Hunts

The Hunts

Back in June we stopped by Rams Head Live in Annapolis, MD, at the behest of a couple of French dudes who were crew on the Tall Ship L’Hermione. They were going there to “See Some Rock and Roll!”

Well, hell, we had to go at that point.

The show was opened by Annapolis local band The Presser Strings, followed by San Francisco band Panic Is Perfect, and Chesapeake, VA natives, The Hunts, a family band consisting of twin sisters and five brothers.

It was a great show where I was able to record thanks to the bands and do short interviews with both of the headliners, who were just starting a summer long national tour.

Getting back to the Ocean with Matt Rutherford, Episode 26

Matt Rutherford sailing the Pacific in 2014 aboard a Harbor 29 to Japan, on a Micro Plastics Research trip.

Join us this week as we pull up a lawn chair next to a jack stand in a boat yard, in the shadow of the 42ft research sailing vessel Ault, home of Matt Rutherford and The Ocean Research Project, yearning to finish preparations and get back to the sea. Matt was kind enough to blow an hour or so on a Sunday afternoon and have a conversation about all of his endeavors, past, present, and future, big and small, from poking holes in his boat (on purpose), to sailing to the Arctic with Scientist and partner Nicole Trenholm this summer and next. Drones be damned, the research continues. Poorly funded and mission participants wishy washy as ever, never plan for anything but changing plans, The Ocean Research Project soldiers on.

Oh yeah, he’s also officially interested in participating in the 50th anniversary Golden Globe Solo, non-stop, sailing race around the world in 2018, if only he could find a sponsor willing to fund the endeavor and find the right ship to sail. Pony up anyone?

Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast Episode 25, The Women behind the Indy flick “June, Adrift”

June, Adrift

Welcome to the 25th episode of the Shooting the Breeze Sailing Podcast, featuring three young women living in LA that wrote, produced, and acted in an Indy Flick shot around the Upper Chesapeake Bay, which has the three characters escaping a post college reality and trying to build a small sailboat on the bay, a project started in youth and never finished. Amanda McCann, Christine Moore, and Cassie Ramoska, three young women living and working in the industry in LA, Acting, Writing, and Producing, came together on this feature film project in 2013 and have now finished the film and are making the rounds on the Film Festival circuit. Recently screened at the Maryland Film Festival in Hagerstown, MD, distribution for the film is in the works, and will hopefully be screened locally at some point in the near future.

I was able to catch up with the ladies a few weeks back on a skype call and getpegasus_sunset2_logo a sense of what it’s like to produce a feature film from nugget of inspiration to finished product on the big screen. Many local Chesapeake Bay area fans and friends have been a part of the production, and the film captures a slice of life on the Northern Bay, in and around the Elkton and Chesapeake City, MD area’s.

Distant Shores Television Hosts Paul and Sheryl Shard sailing on their Southerly 49, Distant Shores 2

After much fussing around with technology and schedules, I finally have had the pleasure of interviewing world renown sailors, cruisers, and television personalities Paul and Sheryl Shard of Distant Shores Television. Hardly the first to do a Podcast interview (See 59-North.com and Medsailor.com) with the Shards, I try to steer the conversation towards new and interesting territory, with some success! I look forward to catching up with the Shards again this year at the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis this fall. If you are at all curious about traveling the world, sailing, cruising, or anything to do with other cultures, you must check out Distant Shores!
