Interview with Glyn Sadler
Today’s interview is with Glyn Sadler! He is part of a group of friends that decided to row across the Atlantic ocean! We chat all about preparing for a massive trip like this, spearfishing off a row boat and how his time in the military has helped his spearfishing. Mental health is a huge talking point, rowing for weeks on end with 3 other men in a tiny boat is going to push you to a place you probably haven’t been before, Glyn has some great thoughts on how to overcome some mental challenges. We also talk about using the bathroom out on the sea and some of the hilarious stories that come with that!
A special Happy Birthday to Glyn’s son Harry and his wife Sarah!
