The world’s most popular sailing website and online community’s Senior Editor Alan “Mr. Clean” Block goes deep! Sure, we’re a sports podcast about yacht, dinghy, multihull, iceboat, and board racing, but we plan on touching every subject that effects not only our sport, but our sailors. That means everything: Fitness and training, the yachting lifestyle, event and media issues, politics, and just about anything else that comes to mind. As any reader of Sailing Anarchy knows, we’ve got plenty to say about everything!

Good on ya
Ive had my issues w/ Mr Clean, but these podcasts are solid. The interview w this Gulari bloke is especially interesting.
Great content, not so great editing
I love Sailing Anarchy and I think this podcasts is a great idea. I have listened to almost all of the episodes so far and can honestly say the content is great. Clean gets awesome dialog going but PLEASE put in a little time editing. Between mic issues and some guests being very load to others being so quite, a little time leveling audio and cleaning up background noise would go a long way!
Debuting in 2016 SA is a relative newcomer to the Sailing Podcast universe and a welcome one at that. Fresh voices, new ideas and more than a little attitude. Just what you'd expect with a name like that.
