Ocean Research Project – The Ault is trashed, the Spanish are nude and Brian’s house smells like a giant ashtray
A leak starts and a pump fails and before you know it, Matt’s boat, The Ault, is sinking. Meanwhile, he’s sorting out an Outbound 46 that’s filled with dog hairs and has a tropical rainforest growing on the bottom. So, he calls in old friend and foul-tempered curmudgeon, Simon, to investigate.
Matt then returns to Warren, Ohio, the town of his birth, where he stays in a stinking, giant ashtray of a house belonging to his good friend, Brian.
He also recalls three days in Portugal, stepping on the toes of a Brazilian woman in a tiny bikini.
Matt Rutherford is the only person in history to circumnavigate the Americas single-handed, non-stop. He is the founder and operator of Ocean Research Project: www.oceanresearchproject.org

Ocean Research Project – Sailing Spain’s Atlantic coast

Matt tells the story of how he lived on brie and baguettes in Sada near A Coruña on the coast of Galicia, and was very nearly seduced into settling there. Meanwhile, his boat, the Ault, is on the hard so he’s sanding and painting and ripping out hoses in 100-degree heat… Ah, the life of a liveaboard.

Russell Currie, MD of Fairline
To mark 50 years of the Fairline brand, the British boat-maker gathered fifty of its best vessels in Boat Radio’s home harbour, the magnificent Port de Sóller, and threw a spectacular party.
There was music, there was food, there was glamour in abundance and there was new managing director, Russell Currie, who kindly gave us a huge amount of his time despite being under pressure to make a presentation and shake the hand of everyone in attendance.
Oh, and there was a helicopter. The photographs accompanying this programme were taken on the day, just off Mallorca’s spectacular north coast.
