NWP 2012 S/V TELEPORT podcast
North West Passage with Chris Bray and Jess Taunton
Episode 29 of The Sailing Podcast is our interview with Jessica Taunton and Chris Bray about their recent trip in their junk rigged sailboat ‘Teleport’. These adventurous Aussies worked extremely hard to achieve their goal of sailing via the North West Passage.
The journey began with an offer of a cheap boat in Halifax, Canada and this led to an extensive refit prior to taking on the North West Passage. Returning the following year, Jessica was to get her first taste of extreme sailing in the Labrador Sea where they encountered storms with Force 12 conditions and reports of 12 meter waves by other ships in the area.
The adventure continues during the summer of 2013... follow along at:
