#166: Annie Dike is a reformed lawyer-turned-sailor - that is,
she left the profession in her early 30s to pursue a more
passionate life. Her and her partner Philip sail a Niagara 35 on
the west coast of Florida, and they recently crossed the Atlantic
to France on a high-tech Catamaran. Annie & I discussed how she
left the lawyer world behind, what the Atlantic crossing was like
for a first-time ocean sailor, her various movie projects, her
friendship with Pam Wall & her passion for helping others
pursue the cruising lifestyle.
Annie Dike is a truly interesting & inspiring character, and what follows was one of the more fun-loving and honest interviews I’ve done in a while. Annie has an infectious personality, and has been using her lawyer-like work ethic to offer cruising opportunities to other aspiring sailors. Mia & I recently teamed up with Annie to offer one of our offshore passages aboard Isbjorn to one of her fans - check out Annie’s Patreon page on patreon.com/havewindwilltravel for details.
