We’re podcasting from Providencia, Colombia in the middle of the Caribbean Sea. We are preparing for the next weather window to take us to Panama.
We talked to Don McIntyre the creator of the 2018 50th Anniversary Golden Globe race. Small stout boats without electrical gadgetry like GPS will engage in the “slowest race in the world,” reliving the famous 1968 race.  Mr. McIntyre think the winner will be alone on the ocean for 8 months or more in the update of the race that made Robin Knox Johnston and Bernard Moitessier household names.
