#260. Mark Jablow is a sailor and former Air Force B1 Bomber 'RIO' - that's Radar Intercept Officer (think Goose from Top Gun, the guy who sits in the back seat). Mark sailed with us on ISBJORN last summer from Ireland down to Portugal and we immediately made a connection. Put it this way - Mark is still active duty Air Force, and if I had met someone of his caliber when I was young, I may just have joined the forces. Mark & I discussed his Air Force and sailing career, and dove into some technical stuff about radar & systems onboard boats at sea, how he handles fear and stress, and more.
