[S02E00] We take a break from our travels to witness an unprecedented event in Cochin. Dish Dash, a sail boat from Dubai that hit a reef off the coast of India, has to make an emergency stop in Cochin where skipper Johnno decides to haul the boat out the water. This has never been done in Cochin and is a logistical nightmare.
This is the last podcast from our first series, but don’t worry, we return summer 2011. This podcast started off as an exclusive interview with Lo Brust, the organiser of the Vasco Da Gama rally. Recorded a few months ago before the Chandlers were released by their Somali pirate captors Jamie and Lo disucss piracy, sailing tactics and whether there will ever be another Vasco Da Gama rally. That interview concludes with a catch-up, the day before Lo left Cochin marina last week with the fifth Vasco Da Gama rally.
After over a year of podcasts documenting the Vasco Da Gama rally this is the final one that sees Emma, Katy, Liz and Jamie safely arrive at their final destination. Not without the odd storm, however.
This podcast is not to be listened to whilst eating. You’ve no doubt heard that travelling in India can be plagued by cases of Delhi Belly and this week neither Katy nor Jamie escaped its wrath. This is a step-by-step account of a rather hilarious day that was only funny for the observers.
There’s nothing I like better than sailing with a bunch of girls in bikinis – what man wouldn’t, eh? In this weeks episode we’re joined by Liz’s old friends, Emma and Katy. They very nearly didn’t make it though…
In our penultimate Arabian Sea crossing podcast Jamie decides to erect something very big that scares Liz. Meanwhile back at Wynbury Delves Primary School the kids send the Esper gang a message. It feels great to know that we’ve done something good, especially after a day of no wind, sunburn and cursing.
