Ep 22 - Conrad Colman
Conrad Colman astonished the sailing world with his feats in the last Vendee Globe, the single-handed, non-stop race around the world. He faced a catalogue of challenges, from being swept overboard at night in the Southern Ocean, to constant capsizing when his auto pilot played up, a fire on board, his mast nearly coming down in 60+ plus knots in the remotest place on Earth, being dismasted less than 1000 miles from home and then running out of food.
The Crazy Kiwi, as he’s known among the fleet, dives into some of these amazing episodes of misadventure but also talks about why he wasn’t among the starters for the present Vendee Globe which started a couple of weeks ago, why he’s desperate to compete in the next one and what the sailors face when they’re on their own for three months at sea.
