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.
