Steve was recently sailing from Bermuda to the Azores when he had a series of misfortunes, including losing the swing keel, backstay failure, and autopilot failure, leaving him undercanvassed and forced to steer when awake, and hove-to when sleeping, for about three weeks. We also talk about his boat, a Brewer 12.8, his previous boat, a Hallberg Rassy Rasmus, designing a windsheild for his boat, losing the swing keel between the Bahamas and Bermuda, safety, perseverance, Starlink, PredictWind, sailing solo vs with crew, and more.
