It’s OK To Have Anxiety

[S04E02] What happens if you’re gripped by fear and anxiety on a small boat in the middle of nowhere, and there is no help coming?
In this frank discussion, we cover what set off Jamie’s anxiety, how we are coming to terms with it, and what it means for followtheboat.
We talk through your comments and we try to work out if it’s worse being on a boat if you’re feeling anxious.

Next week the topic is “drinking and sailing”, so let’s have your thoughts on that topic either here in the comments, in the comments under the video on YouTube or tweet us @followtheboat
