Greetings Sailors! This episode we catch up with Ocean Racer Peter Gibbons Neff, who is preparing to race the Mini Transat this coming September! The Race is a solo, two leg race from France to Guadalupe on 21ft One Design sailboats, and promises each sailor a proper ocean racing challenge.

We spoke with Peter two boat shows ago as he was getting his campaign started, now, along with sponsors like Fawcett marine and a robust Go-Fund Me program, he is taking his last steps later this spring and summer towards getting to the start line.

We talk all about the race, the boat, how he got his start in sailing and some of the adventures in life he has had since sailing with his family when he was a kid. We talk about US Patriot sailing, the umbrella organization he sails under, along with our other recent guest Ronnie Simpson, on his Open 50 Sparrow, who will be participating in the Global Solo Challenge, around the same time as the Mini Transat.

He is still fund raising, and will be in the Annapolis area over the summer, available to answer all of your questions, and perhaps come to your Yacht Club and do a presentation.
