While we were at the Herring Celebration at the Bay Model last weekend, we ran into Sausalito sailor and Sausalito Community Sailing Center booster Mary Gidley. While we were talking with her son, Memo, owner of the Elliott 1050 Basic Instinct, audio producer John Fecile stopped by. He mentioned that Mary would be on KQED’s Snap Judgment. The show will air at 1 p.m. next Saturday, February 8 (rescheduled from February 1).
Fecile said he’d had a terrific interview with Gidley about her ’70s adventure, crossing the Atlantic on a raft with 11 people as part of a social experiment. The story was recently turned into a documentary film called The Raft. So now her adventure on the water will be on the air.
