Ep 5: Lessons Learned Sailing Single Handed

An enlightening chat with two accomplished solo sailors, Richard Gordon-Rein and James Tomlinson about what it takes to sail solo, and what they’ve learned from doing so. Richard has recently sailed solo to from Alaska to Mexico to Hawaii and back. James has decades of experience sailing solo in Northern Europe. We chat about loneliness, self-sufficiency, self-care, the rewards of solo sailing, planning, watch standing as a single hander, sleep schedules, developing skills, and making safe decisions.
