An interesting interview with Will Oxley not just about ocean racing and navigation but also about how people perform under pressure.

Thanks for the link, really good listening.

A short read on similar topic from 2012 Port Fairy race I came across recently

Thanks for posting.
A good read.
I sailed this race in the two prior years, but only knew scant details of the 2012 incident.

No problems, yep it shows what a great media service we already have. Would have been better if the Facebook separation had become a divorce.

Yep, great listen, what a life Will has had so far

Interesting about people who tell their whole life story in the first 10 minutes, there's a few of them around!

Thanks for sharing

Here's another fascinating story about a french woman. The back story with the interviewee is really interesting too.
