This week’s podcast is an interview with Barb Trailer, co-director of the 37th Annual Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival.  Barb and I talk about the history of the 37th Festival, the highlights and some new happenings this year.  Mark your calendars for September 6-8, 2013 and don’t miss it!  You can listen to several interviews from last year’s festival at HOWB 053.

Barb spent her youth in Minnesota and Colorado and snow skied with her family.  At the age of 23 she moved to Saint John Island in the Virgin Islands and started her sailing and boating adventures.  Soon she was the cook on the W.N. Ragland, next she crewed on at Sparkman & Stephens 80′ Ketch (where she met her hubby), and then Barb spent several years on the 160′ power boat Viva before settling in Port Townsend.
