Listen to the ‘The Mariner’ Podcast

This podcast channel is for sailors of all skill levels and backgrounds. My passion is seamanship & self-reliance and helping others realize their sailing dreams on their own boats – whatever size or shape of craft that may be. Light-hearted and filled with personal anecdotes this podcast also contains an ocean of experience from a sailor that has covered more miles on the world’s oceans than the distance from Earth to the moon.

Each episode round the world solo sailor Chris Stanmore-Major, AKA ‘CSM’ talks about all things sailing from how to flake a line and prepare a meal on a family cruising voyage to how to race through the Southern Ocean on an Open 60. Superyachts, racing campaigns, open boat expeditions, classic wooden yachts and tall ships- all have an equal interest to ‘The Mariner’.
