FurledSails   Weekly sailing podcast focusing on cruising and recreational sailing.

In Deep in Ecuador
"Isla del Rey, the southernmost island of Panama’s Archipiélago de las Perlas, offered a protected anchorage as we readied Roger Henry. It was an isolated spot, but—as I’d learned through the years—no land is so remote that Diana can’t find a chance to shop. She bargained with a local diver for a set of creamy pearls with quirky irregularities—just her style. "

The Unlikeliest Victim
"Highly skilled, physically imposing, and surrounded by sailors of the highest caliber, on May 25 Jamie looked like the last guy on the water who would’ve been exposed to true peril. But that was the day the promise of endless sunsets and summer sails came to an end, the day Jamie was lost at sea. "

Reflections at the Water’s Edge
"When a bluewater voyager cruises midsummer Maine aboard a 16-foot catamaran, he discovers the joys of a toasty drysuit and the magic that exists close to shore"

Behind the Bras d’Or
"Today, Cape Breton Island and Bras d’Or Lake epitomize peace, but the region’s past has seen much cannon fire and swordplay. For centuries, Basque fishermen were based in the area during summers, and they hid this source of rich fish stocks from the rest of Europe. In 1497, Explorer John Cabot claimed the island for King Henry VII, but this didn’t prevent the enterprising French from colonizing it."

To Race & Not to Race: A Transpacific Odyssey
"Signing on the training vessel Alaska Eagle during the 2001 Transpac Race from Los Angeles to Honolulu, a CW editor experiences all the pleasure of having it both ways"

The Winter Thaw
"It was a fair question. Storm-force conditions were expected to develop over New England within 36 hours, and my 30-year-old Allied Chance 30-30 probably looked pretty small and vulnerable to his eye. For certain, his concern was genuine, as mine was very likely the first pleasure boat his crew had come across in months."

Good Man Gone
"In early December, memories of Blake were invoked around the world after the 53-year-old sailor was shot and killed when his 119-foot research vessel, Seamaster, was boarded near the mouth of the Amazon River. In New Zealand, a grieving nation came to a standstill as people tried to make sense of the senseless incident. "

Me and Mr. McKee
"There are few things more audibly arresting or morbidly engaging—or, for that matter, bloody surprising—than the spectacle of the tall carbon-fiber mast aboard a modern Open 60 raceboat self-destructing a few boatlengths away. The force is enormous, and the initial crack terrifying, yet time suddenly moves slowly; the sails seem to billow and float as the splintered spar sections fall with them to the sea. "
