How Not To Sail’s Craptastic (But Speedy & Privacy-Friendly) Podcast Player
Ep. 51: DINGHY Awards™ Nominations Show
Jan 10th 2024
Show NotesThank YOU for an awesome 2021, #HowNotToSailer! (Podcast-wise, at least!)
StatsSo, I misspoke… Looks like Australia is currently edging out Norway for the #4 spot. And where are my Spanish #HowNotToSailers? I’da thought they’d be in the Top 10 this quarter. I know Didier’s doing his part! Irregardless, as my friend Bill would say, I very much appreciate you listening!!! Let’s see if we can get to 100,000 by the boat show! (More on the boat show below.)

St. Pete Boat ShowOkay, so I plan on seeing you at the St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show in January! I expect that Latitudes & Attitudes will be throwing their usual cruisers’ party on Saturday the 22nd, if history is any guide…so I definitely plan to be there for that part. If it’s the same as before, you need to be inside the venue before closing time. (5pm?) More details forthcoming, BUT ALSO…
VIP Patrons MeetupI also plan on having a little meetup for our How Not To Sail Patreon Patrons on Thursday, January 20th…so if you’ve been thinking about joining the Patreon crew, this is a perfectly fine excuse to climb aboard!
We’re #1…!!!Well…we were #1. And How Not To Sail could get there again! If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for that certain someone, may I recommend a certain book? Get How Not To Sail HERE (Also, if you’ve already got the book…and enjoyed it enough to leave a nice 5-star review, I’d be most grateful for that, too!!! And major thanks if you already have!) I notice that the other books at the top of these categories have hundreds of reviews. I probably should ask for more reviews on the podcast…but I figure you can only say so many things at once. 😝
Our Friend MaxiThanks to Maxi Frini for his excellent mixes this year! If you need any audio services—or just want to say Hello—you can find him at MaxiFrini.com.
Another Podcast For YouIn case you’ve already binge-listened to all of the How Not To Sail episodes, you might enjoy listening to my buddy Captain Wettig’s podcast, the Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast. Not because I’m a guest on Episode 125 or anything, but because Captain Jeffrey Wettig’s always a great listen. It’s like sitting across from a good friend at the pub, as he talks to a cool guest. And maybe they have a beer or too, metaphorically speaking. Who knows? And I mean, don’t you want to have a beer with him?
Upcoming EpisodesOh, yes, I’ve got several podcasts brewing in the hopper… Some of them require more heavy lifting than others, but a couple that you’re likely to hear soon:
- Our Patreon friends Sondra and Jimmy make a Gulf crossing and learn a number of lessons on How Not To Sail.
(I LOVE the idea of this… I hear plenty of my own “learning experiences.” I’m really stoked to share this one.)
It is normal to desire mutiny. The key is not to act on it. –Sondra Lee
- I plan to be recording a bit of a gam today with Peter Suarez, a.k.a. Captain Pete…and that one might even find its way onto the airwaves by New Years.
