Good Jibes #78: “Trailer Sailors Cruise the Channel Islands” and “Geja”
This week in Good Jibes, host Monica Grant reads two articles from the February 2023 issue of Latitude 38. Hear about Erin Quinn’s exploration of Catalina, “Trailer Sailors Cruise the Channel Islands,” and listen in to the story of Andrew Vik’s hop from Croatia to Italy in “Geja.”
“Sometimes a long day isn’t a bad thing. When our planet tilts toward the south, and the sun springs up by 5 a.m. and hangs around until well past 8 p.m., it can be pure pleasure to while away those hours cruising in a small, slow sailboat.”
“Farthest south in Croatia is Dubrovnik, a stunning seaside old town like no other. By this point, two groups of friends had joined me, but there I set aside a few days of solo time.”
This episode covers everything from Catalina Island to the Mediterranean islands.
Here’s a small sample of what you will hear:
- Where are the Channel Islands?
- What are the best books about them?
- Where should you stay on Catalina Island?
