Scooter's Podca$t: what's it worth?

I was a big fan of Scooter's videos back in the day. Well edited and great commentary. I fear with Podcasting, the opportunity to ramble and bramble to eat up clock time might temp Ed Almighty to stray from script. Real question is "why podcasting and why now?". Certainly, SA needs some help remaining relevant. The occasional FP fluff, stale forums and slow adverts hardly make a compelling ezine. If you want content, read your weekly update from Craig.

So how long before the Podca$t goes premium? You know, the well trotted path of freemium to begin with only to morph into a paywall and Patron? Honestly, how many of you pervs slam down the credit card when the little filly you're following on Instagram incites you with the promise of some hereto unrevealed skin...for a price? Precious few, I suspect. Anyway, good on you for eating up more of my precious time.

who the fuck cares , good for him getting something.. seriously, worrying about other guys is a mental illness... you worry about what people are selling their boats for.. seriously, pull your head out of your ass and come up for air..

Title: A Blast from the Past: A Conversation between Sailing Anarchy's Scot Tempesta and Hanno the Navigator on Sailboat Racing

Scot Tempesta (ST): Welcome, sailing enthusiasts! I'm Scot Tempesta from Sailing Anarchy, and today, we have a truly unique guest. Joining us is the legendary ancient navigator, Hanno the Navigator! Hanno, it's a pleasure to have you here.

Hanno the Navigator (HN): Thank you, Scot. It's an honor to be here, and I'm looking forward to learning about the exciting world of modern sailboat racing.

ST: So, Hanno, you were a Carthaginian explorer, and you led an expedition around the African continent in the 5th century BC. How did sailing and navigation techniques differ back then compared to what we see in today's races?

HN: Indeed, our methods were much different from what I've seen so far in modern sailboat racing. Back in my time, we relied heavily on celestial navigation, using the stars and the sun to guide our course. We had no compasses or GPS devices, and our boats were simple wooden vessels powered by square sails and oars.

ST: It's amazing how far we've come. Today's sailboat racing is incredibly high-tech. We have advanced materials for sails, cutting-edge hull designs, and sophisticated navigation systems. What are your thoughts on the evolution of sailing?

HN: It's truly remarkable to see the progress that has been made. The level of precision and control that modern sailors have over their boats is impressive. I can only imagine what it would have been like to have such technology during my time.

ST: Now let's talk about racing itself. In modern sailboat racing, there are various classes and types of boats, from small dinghies to massive multi-hulls. What kind of racing, if any, took place in your time?

HN: In the ancient world, we did not have organized racing as you do today. Our primary focus was on exploration and trade. However, there were occasions when rival ships would compete against each other to reach a destination first, which could be considered a form of racing.

ST: Interesting. Speaking of competition, what do you think is the key to success in sailboat racing?

HN: From what I've observed, teamwork and communication seem to be critical. A well-coordinated crew can make all the difference in a race. Additionally, a deep understanding of the boat, the wind, and the sea is essential for success.

ST: Absolutely. Now, Hanno, I have to ask: If you were to participate in a modern sailboat race, what type of boat would you choose and why?

HN: That's a tough question, as there are so many fascinating designs to choose from. I must say I am intrigued by the multi-hull boats, such as the high-speed foiling catamarans. They seem to defy the laws of nature and push the boundaries of what is possible in sailing. I would love to experience sailing one of these extraordinary vessels.

ST: That would be quite a sight! Well, Hanno, thank you for joining us today and sharing your unique perspective on sailing and racing. It's been an absolute pleasure.

HN: Thank you, Scot. It has been a fascinating experience, and I have truly enjoyed our discussion. Good luck to all the sailors out there, and may the wind be ever in your favor!

ST: Thanks, Hanno. And to our listeners, thank you for tuning in to this special episode of Sailing Anarchy. Until next time, sail fast and sail safe!


Title: A Meeting of Minds: Sailing Anarchy's Scot Tempesta and Hunt for Red October's Marko Ramius Discuss the Ideal Time to Jibe

Scot Tempesta (ST): Welcome back, sailing enthusiasts! I'm Scot Tempesta from Sailing Anarchy, and today, we have a special guest from the world of fiction. Joining us is Captain Marko Ramius, the brilliant Soviet submarine commander from Tom Clancy's novel, The Hunt for Red October. Captain Ramius, welcome aboard!

Marko Ramius (MR): Thank you, Scot. It's an interesting change of scenery for me to discuss sailing, but I'm excited to learn and share my thoughts.

ST: Excellent! So, let's dive right in. We're here to talk about the ideal time to jibe in sailboat racing. From your experience as a naval commander, what factors do you think are most important when considering the right moment to jibe?

MR: While my expertise lies in submarines rather than sailboats, I can appreciate the importance of timing and strategy in any maneuver. The key factors to consider when deciding the ideal time to jibe are the wind direction, boat speed, and position relative to your competitors. A well-timed jibe can gain you a significant advantage over your opponents.

ST: I couldn't agree more. Now, Captain, let's talk about wind shifts. How important is it for sailors to anticipate and react to wind shifts when deciding when to jibe?

MR: Anticipating wind shifts is crucial. In both submarine warfare and sailboat racing, the ability to predict and adapt to changing conditions is a significant advantage. Sailors must remain vigilant and observe the wind patterns on the water, as well as monitor their instruments to identify any shifts in wind direction. Jibing at the right moment, in response to a favorable wind shift, can greatly improve your boat's performance and position in the race.

ST: Absolutely. Now, when it comes to jibing, communication and teamwork are essential. Can you share some insights from your leadership experience on how to ensure clear communication during critical maneuvers like a jibe?

MR: Of course. In high-pressure situations, it's vital to establish clear communication protocols and assign specific roles to each crew member. This ensures that everyone understands their responsibilities and works together efficiently. During a jibe, the helmsperson should communicate their intentions and timing, while the crew should acknowledge and execute their tasks in a coordinated manner. Trust and cooperation are the foundations of a successful team, whether on a sailboat or a submarine.

ST: Well said, Captain. Finally, what advice would you give to sailors who are trying to perfect their jibing technique and timing?

MR: Practice makes perfect. Just as we train relentlessly in the submarine service, sailors must dedicate time to practicing their jibing skills in various conditions. Analyzing past performances, learning from mistakes, and refining techniques will lead to improvement. Additionally, it's essential to maintain situational awareness during a race and be prepared to adapt your strategy as conditions change.

ST: Fantastic advice, Captain Ramius. Thank you for joining us today and offering your unique perspective on sailing tactics and teamwork.

MR: It's been my pleasure, Scot. I've enjoyed our discussion and the opportunity to learn more about the exciting world of sailboat racing. I wish all the sailors out there fair winds and smooth seas.

ST: Thanks, Captain. And to our listeners, thank you for tuning in to this special episode of Sailing Anarchy. Until next time, sail fast and sail safe!



Super Anarchist
I am into podcasts.
I gave this one a try
and a second one.
sometimes things take a while to work out.

latest is all about rule69.
only thing I learnt is he likes to drop fbombs

i'm done. pull the plug.
ah crap, I gave it another go because I was subscribed.

It's just a long monologue, if that's how it's going to be then it needs to be on a well researched topic or factual. You have to be a really funny guy or a great speaker to rattle of a story by yourself for 15 long minutes.

Or get guests.
he bought a J/105. cool story.

for now, i'm back to unsubscribed


under the southern cross I stand ...
I'm wondering if his entry to the next RRS event will be declined after publicaly declaring contempt for the rules he would be agreeing to abide by according to the NOR.

If it were me I would be asking the question.
