Weekend America 2008.10.11 – Listening In on the Schooner Anne

On April 23, 2007, Reid Stowe and Soanya Ahmad set out from New York harbor on an ambitious sailing voyage. Their goal was to sail for 1000 days without touching land, carrying all their provisions with them. Reid and Soanya set out to beat the world record of endurance sailing – sailing without resupply – which currently stands at 658 days, held by Australian sailor Jon Sanders. As of this broadcast, their voyage had lasted just under 540 days. In this installment of the “Listening In” series, I talk with Reid and Soanya to find out how music helps mark the time out on the open seas.
