This week we're going to get pretty deep. I've personally been on a spiritual awaking journey recently. I think the pandemic and all the other things going on in the world right now have caused a lot of us to look for answers. I've been going down this path for about a year and recent events have helped to escalate my search for truth which has led to an expansion of awareness.
Out of the blue, Captain Debbie Hanson who was featured on Episode 140 of the show reached out to me and recommended I connect with a woman by the name of Lexi Quinn who is a fly angler, hunter, and life coach. Debbie had fished with her recently and said "she's the real deal."
In this week's episode of The Woman Angler & Adventurer podcast, Sea Tow Foundation's Executive Director Gail Kulp joins us again to talk about another very important program spearheaded by the foundation. It's called the Sober Skipper Program.
I'm honored to be a part of the Sober Skipper Program National Advisory Council. At Freedom Boat Club, we take boating under the influence very seriously. In fact, your membership would be terminated if caught doing so. That's one reason we're strong supporters of the program which is centered around the idea that boaters need to designate a sober skipper before leaving the dock.
Boating is a fun activity, but it isn't an inherently safe activity. That's one of the 1st things we USCG Licensed Captains teach our new members at Freedom Boat Club. That also happens to be what the Sea Tow Foundation is all about! Boating can be safe AND fun!
Established in 2007 by Sea Tow Founder Capt. Joe Frohnhoefer, their mission is to bring attention to the number of preventable boating-related injuries, deaths, and damage to property, that directly addresses prevention methods through education and awareness.
