I interviewed renown offshore sailor Eric Forsyth

Eric Forsyth has sailed over 250,000 nautical miles on sailing his 42 foot sailing vessel 'Fiona.' He has circumnavigated the globe twice, once east to west and once west to east... He's sailed to the Arctic and the Antarctic 3 times each, including navigating the Northwest Passage. He's sailed through the Panama Canal five times, sailed around Cape Horn 4 times, and is a Cruising Club of America Blue Water Medal winner.

On November 4, 2011 I interviewed Eric aboard Fiona in Lisbon, Portugal...

for your enjoyment,

Thanks for sharing these, and your other videos too! I just found your stuff on YouTube via the thread on your Bermuda Nightmare series, and will watch these next. Good stuff! I really appreciate the honest views, when it's good, when it's bad, when you make mistakes or do everything right. Very entertaining and informative. I hope you keep it up. Hopefully someday I'll have great adventures to share as well, hopefully not too long from now...

Thanks,
Bryan
