Today’s podcast is a recording I did with Eben Bruyus and Annie Ryan at the 2016 Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. Eben and Annie purchased famed cutter Taleisin from Lin & Larry Pardey last year. They are self admitted “green horn” sailors and are looking forward to a lifetime of adventures aboard Taleisin. Check out their blog at Taleisin.com.

We had a grand time discussing how they found Taleisin, why they bought her, and their unique and fun interactions with the Pardeys before, during and after the purchase.

Today’s podcast is a recording I did with Lin Pardey at the 2016 Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. We touched on a variety of topics including “Why wooden boats are great cruising boats”, the sale of Taleisin, and other fun stuff 😀

Lin has just released her new book – Taleisin’s Tales – Sailing towards the Southern Cross – and it promises to be as popular as the dozens of books she has written about she & Larry’s adventures!
