Default Sailing Podcast

Episode 52 of The Sailing Podcast is with Franz Amussen about Sailing in the Mediterranean. Franz decided to build a Bristol Channel Cutter after being inspired by Lin and Larry Pardey and their stories of adventure in Seraffyn.

Franz built his Lyle Hess design in his backyard and, after spending some time in the San Juan Islands, he sailed over the to Mediterranean and has spent the last 17 years travelling back and forth for mediterranean sailing adventures.

In this episode we hear about:

  • Racing on the Great Salt Lake in Utah
  • Crossing the North Atlantic in a storm
  • The Sailing in the Mediterranean podcast

One of the things that stood out for me during this interview, apart from all the great advice on the Med, was how Franz has been able to spend so much time sailing. Instead of having to give up his home, his work and his lifestyle Franz has managed to enjoy extended trips sailing while still having a home and a job to return to. He has probably fitted in as much sailing over the past 17 years as anyone who has taken a world cruise.

In a great segue from the last episode with Lin Pardey, Franz describes how he had a hull and deck built by Lyle Hess and delivered to his back yard in Salt Lake City. The Pardey stories of adventures in Seraffyn led Franz to decide on the Bristol Channel Cutter design and I am sure Franz mentioned Larry coming to see his project at some stage. The books about Seraffyn included:
Cruising in Seraffyn
Seraffyn’s European Adventure and
Seraffyn's Mediterranean Adventure

Franz also has a sailing podcast called ‘Sailing in the Mediterranean’, which you can find in iTunes or download from his website at www.medsailor.com. Another interesting thing Franz has done is create a set of audio lessons for people needing to get a basic sailboat certification. Some people get this to allow them to charter yachts while overseas. You can check out his courses in iTunes. Just search for:

Basic Keelboat Certification Lessons for the ASA 101
Basic Coastal Cruising; Lessons for the ASA 103 Exam
Bareboat Cruising Certification Lessons for the ASA 104

Default How to fund your sailing adventure?

Riley and Elayna from Sailing La Vagabonde joined us in Episode 57 of The Sailing Podcast to talk moustaches, music and making videos.

Hear about how their audience is rewarding their adventurous spirit through http://www.patreon.com/lavagabonde
They are receiving over $2,500 in donations per video

The story of La Vagabonde started with Riley searching for a yacht to sail single-handed, which led to finding La Vagabonde in Italy. From here he crossed paths with Elayna, who joined Riley to sail throughout Europe and across the Atlantic.

Elayna began producing videos of the trip and posted them to YouTube for the entertainment of friends and then began to notice many others were starting to watch and share their videos. Their following quickly grew to 36,500 subscribers and their first video has over 600,000 views to date.

In this episode we hear about:

- How Riley found a yacht, sailing and Elayna
- How Elayna began producing videos of the journey
- How their audience is supporting them via Patreon.com

More information is available at Sailing La Vagabonde - The Sailing Podcast
