#315. Matt Rutherford returns to the show to reflect on the tenth anniversary of his departure for the Around the America's solo passage, a record-setting, nonstop trip through the NW Passage and around Cape Horn. We also discussed his origins as a drug dealer on the streets of Cleveland, and how staying out of prison - and alive - helped him become a 'defensive' sailor. Checkout Matt's podcast SINGLE-HANDED wherever you get your podcasts.
