A special edition of Shoretalk focussing on the Fastnet Race

In a special edition of our Shoretalk podcast, brought to you in association with the Volvo Ocean Race, Guy Swindells talks to some of the competitors in this year’s Fastnet race and and looks back 30 years at the event that changed racing for ever.

We hear from Guy Salter, navigator on winning boat ICAP Leopard, fresh from his role as a media man in the Volvo Ocean Race; Hannah White, who swapped single life in the OSTAR, for a race with 17 other crew members, and bed-sheets; and Matt Sheahan who tells the tragic tale of his 1979 Fastnet (despite Guy previewing him as Matt Humphreys).
