The Boat Galley Podcast

Nica Waters, Lin Pardey, Carolyn Shearlock

Take cruising from dream to reality with The Boat Galley Podcast, a new podcast that features tips, advice, and how-tos for your cruising adventure.

Three experienced cruising women share their best stories in weekly episodes, each with their own individual flair.

Lin Pardey, along with her husband, Larry, has sailed over 200,000nm with three circumnavigations under her belt. Most of those miles were done on boats under 30 feet, that she and Larry built together. Her stories are glimpses into the timeless nature of cruising, and her practical advice is well-honed for life aboard.

Carolyn Shearlock, best known for The Boat Galley Cookbook (and its attendant website), has lived aboard and cruised for 10+ years. Her tips and anecdotes will speed your climb up the learning curve as you bypass the mistakes she and her husband, Dave, made as they learned the hard way.

Nica Waters, one of the admin team for Women Who Sail, has (with her husband, Jeremy) owned her 28’ Bristol Channel Cutter since 1992. She’s cruised extensively in the Bahamas and the Chesapeake both before children and with them, and is in active preparation for the next, more open-ended adventure. Her YouTube show, Tasty Thursday, has been running weekly since October of 2012.

To listen, just search for “The Boat Galley” in your podcast app. Episodes are short, ranging from 5 to 15 minutes and cover every aspect of cruising and preparing for life aboard.
