Sailing Podcasts

Many of us try to start the New Year off with better habits. Some of us say we’ll go out on the water more and some of us say that we’ll plan that dream trip. But, research suggests that the day people are most likely to give up on their New Year resolutions is January 19th – that’s today!
If you want to expand your sailing horizons but need something a bit more convenient, podcasts can offer a wealth of information and entertainment for racers and cruisers alike. We’ve made a list of some of the best ones, just for you!

The Boat Galley

If you’re looking for speedy hints and tips, try The Boat Galley. These informative 5 to 10 minutes segments help make every stage of your sailing adventures a bit easier. We’d highly recommend giving these a listen if you’re thinking about buying a boat or have a cruising trip in mind. The presenters anecdotal, relaxed style really draws you in and the little bit of humour never goes amiss!

Shirley Robertson’s Sailing Podcast

The place to listen to stories from leading sailors in the sport. Double Olympic gold medallist Shirley Robertson OBE talks about her experiences racing around the world and behind the scenes at America’s Cup. These hour-long interviews are personal and in-depth, so they’re perfect listening for a long car drive or a Sunday afternoon with your favourite hot drink.

H20 BBC Sounds

If you’re based in the UK, give Radio Solent’s weekly podcast a go. Covering topics from Portsmouth Historic Dockyard to Sailing When You’re Blind, the shows give a good insight into the lives of people from all sailing backgrounds. This one is a special favourite of ours as it’s based locally to us on the South Coast of England!

On the Wind Sailing

Andy Schell’s weekly chats about what motivates, scares and inspires sailors from around the world is not one to miss. Brilliant listening for offshore enthusiasts, the segments cover a range of topics from boat building to the experiences of authors at sea. We learn something new every time we tune in!
