The Mariner Podcast Episode 6. ‘Broken Wing’

In this episode I talk about heading out from New Zealand, solo on an Open 60 racing around the world in the Velux 5 Oceans Race in 2010/11. I deal with a few problems that challenge my skills and tenacity before disaster strikes in the shape of the badly torn mainsail that threatens to scupper my entire race.

Who is the Mariner?

My name is Chris Stanmore-Major better known as CSM. I have over 300,000Nm experience in racing, cruising & expedition sailing and have raced twice around the world. I sailed solo around the world in the Velux 5 Oceans Race in 2011 (in Falcon’s sister ship) becoming the 182nd person ever to circumnavigate alone.

This Podcast channel is for sailors of all skill levels and backgrounds. My passion is seamanship & self-reliance and helping others realize their sailing dreams on their own boats – whatever size or shape of craft that may be.
