My podcasting partner, Captain John Konrad, is holding a pretty simple contest over at gCaptain.com to win a Spot Satellite Messenger.

RTÉ is Ireland’s public service broadcaster and they produce an excellent podcast called Seascapes that celebrates this island nation’s strong maritime heritage. In this week’s episode, RTÉ interviews Captain Tom McCarthy and they reflect on the loss of the Asgard II and the future of Irish sail training. It’s a great podcast, listen to the complete episode if you have the time. Actually, find the time, you won’t be disappointed.
