mike-mcdowall-the-life-aquatic-boat-radioEvery week The Life Aquatic focuses on a family, a couple or an individual who has taken the extraordinary step of quitting the rat race and heading off on an adventure aboard a sailboat. Some have had an easy ride and, sure, preparation and planning have a big part to play in making the voyage smooth, but others have faced catastrophe at the hands of Mother Nature and unforeseen circumstances. Every person has an interesting story to tell and there’s something to be learned from all of the people we speak to. The Life Aquatic is presented by Mike McDowall. When Mike’s busy elsewhere, James Finlayson deputises.
