John Martino is the former owner of ‘Isbjorn’, then ‘Patriot’, and he’s also the founder of the Annapolis School of Seamanship. I spoke to John in Eastport at the school’s headquarters about his history as a sailor, how he founded the school, and of course how he came to own ‘Patriot’ and what he thought of her as a boat!

#212. RECYCLED. Sara Hastreiter sailed in the previous Volvo Ocean Race aboard the all-women Team SCA, skippered by Dee Caffari. Sara’s off mountaineer for this year’s event, set to sail on October 22. But Dee Caffari is heading up the mixed-crew team on ‘Turn the Tide on Plastic,’ so you know who I’ll be rooting for this year! Mia & I met and sailed with Sara in NYC a few years back, and I had a chance to talk to her on Skype immediately following the last Volvo.
