Learning to sail around the world
Unknown Track - Unknown Artist
My final Sports Journalism degree radio package. A ten minute feature on offshore sailing.
The Offshore sailing Academy is a fascinating organisation that trains people for massive sailing voyages.
Charles Darbyshire talks about what the foundation does and former sailing correspondent for The Times: Ed Gormon, discusses offshore sailing's place in British sport. Former students of the Academy, Hugh Brayshaw and Henry Bomby also feature.
Hugh talks about life at the Academy while Henry chats on a rest day from the Volvo Ocean Race in Brazil.
