An Artist of Words, Wind and Women

I'm not someone who is normally impressed with records or "first attempts" in sailing. Without the context of knowing something about the sailor, these don't do a lot for me: First American alone around Cape Horn. One time record holder for fastest solo circumnavigation in a monohull. Most (perhaps) overall non-racing/non-sponsored circumnavigations than any other sailor.

But linking the above to a complicated personality like Webb Chiles adds a ton of intrigue. I've always been fascinated by Webb's voyages and perspectives. I've been following along recently on his website as he prepares for a sixth circumnavigation and thought it might be a good time to pick his brain for more perspective. What materialized is an interview I posted on my website here: "An Artist of Words, Wind and Women - An interview w/ Webb Chiles"

Anyone else enjoy Webb's writing and plan to follow his journal during his next big voyage?
