Howard Mann Delivery France to Athens

In this episode I interviewed Howard Mann and we talked about his delivery of a Sun Odyssey 490 from France to Athens during the gradual spread of the Chinese virus (I refuse to be politically correct I call it as I see it, the corona virus). He shared with me the log of this adventure and if you would like to read it here is a link.

Unfortunately the audio quality is probably the worst I’ve had in many episodes I was not using my normal set up I was trying to use a different set up at the office if you don’t have the patience to listen to it perhaps I will get him on the line and talk about this story at some point in time in the future again.

If you’re interested in talking to Howard about sailing in Israel his his contact information and is website
