Atlas Obscura Releases Podcast About my Time in the Doldrums

What’s it like to float alone for a week in the Doldrums, one of the remotes stretches of ocean on planet Earth? This week Atlas Obscura released an interview I did with co-founder Dylan Thuras about my experience exploring the Doldrums in my sailboat Sea Bird. You can listen to the interview here.

The Doldrums: that place made famous by the “The Rime of the Ancyent Marinere” (yes, Samuel Taylor Coleridge spelled it that way when it was first published in 1798.) Remember that line, “As idle as a painted ship, Upon a painted ocean.”? Yep. Same Doldrums. (Google Maps photo)

Here’s a short video I put together to give you a sense of what it’s like out there.
