Slow Boat to the Bahamas
The conversation with Linus began with hearing about getting the sailing bug and learning to sail. After this Linus shared how he progressed through his choices of yachts and onto sailing to the Bahamas. With the trip completed, book written and adventures beckoning, Linus finished by letting us know about his future plans.

Linus has given listeners of ‘The Sailing Podcast” access to the audio version of the first chapter of ‘Slow Boat to the Bahamas’. The best way to access the bonus content is to use the app for listening to Sailing Podcast. You can find the Sailing Podcast app for your iPhone or Android phone in the The iTunes store or the Google Play store.
If you are downloading the podcast using another podcast app or you listen directly from the website, I will post the chapter as a separate bonus episode in the next week or so. Once this is done I will post the links here as well.
You can now also find The Sailing Podcast app in the Amazon App store and wherever Windows phone users go to find apps. This brings the app to 4 major app storefronts and allows me to add additional content directly to the podcast app so you can find links etc using PDF's provided with the episodes. If you get a chance to leave a review it would be appreciated :-)
Thanks for listening to the podcast and I hope you have a great day and thank you for joining us on our journey
