‘Through The Porthole’ is a concept that came about when Liz and I worked on a yachting newspaper, The Porthole, over the winter period of 2007-8 whilst staying in Marmaris, Turkey, It was a way of profiling unknown sailors within Marmaris Yacht Marina and was achieved by me inviting myself on board a stranger’s boat and asking impertinent and frank questions about the boat owner. This format proved to be an instant success with the readers of The Porthole.
We have since left the marina but I enjoyed interviewing strangers so much I continue the legacy of The Porthole. It’s a great way of meeting people and each interview becomes a unique and interesting experience. Because of the many and varied people we meet through our travels the interviews now cover anyone involved in boating, be they boat owners, marina managers or liveaboard kids. Unlike magazine interviews that tend to profile the rich and famous the point of the ‘through the porthole’ interview is to get to know the ‘little’ people, people like you and me. Everyone has a story and these interviews prove this.
The Through The Porthole interviews now appear in the log, chronologically, but they have their own category too.
