Our Town – Chris Hood

Listen now:

For some, the sound of summer has been the noise of torrential rain. In both the southeast of England and up and down the USA’s eastern seaboard, the rain has been more abundant than usual. When I took a day off from the summer joys of swimming and kayaking to visit CHRIS HOOD’s Marblehead boat yard, the town was on the very wet side of tropical storm Fred. The elegance and speed of Chris’s Hood 32 daysailer won top honors from both Sail Magazine and Sailing World, and it was a treat to see one being built. Listen for a clue about what it is that gives Marblehead a leg up on other sailing centers of the world.

Meanwhile, although I’ve done my best to goof off at every opportunity, you normally can’t keep a good RHODcast down. For the month of September, however, I’m taking the course pursued by many an exile and visiting family in the UK for the first time since the onset of Covid. If you missed any of the earlier podcasts, now might be an excellent time to check the list on our our redesigned website.
