Folk Tales – the exciting new podcast from boatfolk

National boating business, boatfolk, has launched a new podcast series, Folk Tales, that features untold stories and interviews from across the UK boating community.

With special guests from within the boatfolk family and beyond, the series looks at the lives, experiences, and stories of people with a shared passion for the water. From 15-year-old record-breaker, Tim Long, to Dorset eco-warriors Roy Beal and Oly Rush, it features amazing tales from incredible people.

The first episode hears from Tim Long, who at just 15 became the youngest person ever to sail solo around Britain in 2020. He spent the summer of last year on a 1,600 nautical mile anti-clockwise voyage around the British coast, having set out from Hamble, Southampton on 16 July 2020. On the podcast Tim talks about his epic adventure, what motivates him and where he is setting his sights for the future.

Dominic Zammit, Director at boatfolk, comments, “Folk Tales is a podcast series by boatfolk, for boatfolk. At times when things are tough, it’s human nature to turn to others and seek out company. And after the year we have all just had, we wanted to find a way of bringing the UK boating community together. We have already heard some incredible stories which we are really excited to share with everyone.”

The weekly podcast is available to download or stream from the boatfolk website or across all mainstream podcast players. To find out more about the podcast visit www.boatfolk.co.uk/folk-tales-podcast.
