Adam and Lauren and their lovely boat dog Freddy get going on their sailing trip to travel around the UK in their live-aboard Westerly Sealord, Phoenix. On this podcast they tell us of their longer voyages and why they talk to some of the larger vessels they encounter on VHF along the way.

We also hear from Captain Mike Oakley, a pilot vessel Captain about his life before becoming a Pilot Vessel Captain in Southampton, about his work guiding those vessels into Southampton Docks, why a pilot vessel is still needed even with the advances in technology and some of the things that he sees on his daily duties from the bridge!
