The something for the Weekend Team have decided to take a wee break over the summer to enjoy the rain/midges/sun/downpours please delete as appropriate – It not that there is nothing to podcast about far from it – but it’s a busy time with people off on holiday and its difficult to get the whole gang together even from their remote locations to record the weekly show.

That’s not to say they havn’t been busy and recorded a few things in advance – This week’s podcast takes you on a Calmac ferry then a Basking Shark Scotland rib boat as Kathie and fellow open water swimmers Jeanette Sheldrick and Catriona Petit chat with Lorna Evans, one of the founders of a new charity called Seaful whose mission is to encourage more people to get out on the ocean, fall in love with it and keep it safe. Also on the journey was Seaful’s other founder Cal Major, a world-record stand-up paddleboarder currently working her way around the wild Scottish coast while her partner James Appleton captures it all on camera for a documentary.
