Meet Margie Woods on Good Jibes Ep. #27

This week’s Good Jibes host, Ryan Foland, is joined by Margie Woods to chat about getting over your fears and finding that deep trust in yourself, thanks to sailing. Margie is a lifelong sailor who is passionate about supporting women to follow their sailing dreams. She is an ASA instructor, and she raced in the 2016 Singlehanded Transpacific Yacht Race.

In this episode, hear Margie’s thoughts on how to conquer your fears while sailing and find your inner strength, what she learned from doing the Singlehanded Transpacific Race, how to make friends in sailing communities, and whether it’s OK to talk to dolphins and waves on your voyage.
