Ep. 26: Abandoned, 119 Days Adrift with John Glennie Interviewed by Linus Wilson

Get the Slow Boat Sailing Podcast on Stitcher and iTunes!

John Glennie’s boat was adrift for 119 days upside-down before he and three other men landed on Great Barrier Island in New Zealand. This is the record for the most days adrift in a cold climate and is likely the record for the most days adrift by a sailing yacht crew. His boat the Rose-Noelle capsized in violent storm on the way to Fiji from the South Island of New Zealand. In this podcast, we hear the first 30 minutes of that over 2.5 hour conversation about the ordeal. It contains important lessons about survival at sea. In that long conversation, Glennie said he could not properly tell his story in his co-authored book The Spirit of the Rose Noelle because he was suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) when it was being written. The 119 days at sea are the subject of the feature film Abandoned available on Amazon or Netflix.  The first 30 minutes of the conversation with Glennie are in the podcast. The second 30 minutes are free to Patreon subscribers as a bonus episode. The full conversation about Glennie’s story of survival at sea is on CD Baby and should be available on iTunes as a single or album entitled Abandoned: 119 Days Adrift, a conversation with John Glennie the captain of the Rose-Noelle by Linus Wilson

Also check out my new study guide entitled Navigation Rules: International and Inland (Abridged), Study Guide for Uscg Captains’ and Merchant Mariner Exams.  Episode 6’s South Pacific Weather with Met Bob has became an Album on iTunes. John Glennie’s first book Playboys of the South Pacific is available as an eBook on Amazon. His book about the ill-fated Rose-Noelle voyage is only available second-hand in the USA.

Since the last podcast we released our forth video in our vlog series on YouTube and the second of 2 videos about sailing in Cuba. Enjoy!

Plan for YouTube vlog of Our Past Season Sailing to Cuba, Transiting the Panama Canal, and Crossing the Equator

The first of three Cuba videos is up.  The rest will be released in the next several weeks.  I only make visually-interesting, short videos, with lots of cuts based on the sailing we have done. If we haven’t done the sailing or visited an interesting port, then I won’t post a video in our new vlog series season 1 on YouTube.

Subscribe to get the remaining videos when they are released.

The current season has three episodes videos up with more to come. Check out the trailer preview. In 2017 we sailing to Galapagos and French Polynesia. I think there are a lot of popular channels with episode 100, and they have never left their home county and are still fixing their boat, but they say they are sailing around the world. Our vlog will put you in the 31′ sailboat of the round the world trip right away your won’t have to wait until video 500 to see us get on the trade wind circumnavigation route transiting the Panama Canal. The Panama Canal transit is scheduled to be video 9.  The season finale of sailing offshore two weeks for Ecuador will not be released until summer 2017. I expect the first 9 videos will be out before the end of 2016.
