On the Wind is the world’s largest podcast about offshore sailing. It is produced by 59 North Sailing and based on one-hour long informal chats between the host Andy Schell and experienced ocean sailors from all over the world.
Among the guests we find sailing legends like Sir Robin Knox Johnson, Volvo Ocean Race skipper Magnus Olsson and famous YouTubers like the crew of SV Delos. Rutgerson’s founder Göran Rutgerson has also been interviewed on the show, as well as our Technical Designer Ludvig Hammarberg who has sailed around the world with his wife and their two children.
The podcast has been released in some 250 episodes so far, all together downloaded more than two million times since the start 2013. New episodes of the podcast are published weekly or bi-weekly.
“Being able to endorse Rutgerson, whose products I use on my own boat, genuinely comes from the heart. That we can benefit from a sponsorship with them is a bonus. I’d be talking about them anyway”, says Andy Schell who also runs an offshore charter business together with his Swedish wife Mia Karlsson.
Summer of 2018 Andy Schell and Mia Karlsson from 59 North Sailing headed north with their Swan 48 Isbjörn to explore the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard together with a very special crew – the team behind the YouTube-channel Sailing SV Delos. Stay tuned for their videos coming soon. In the meanwhile, enjoy these amazing shots.
