The intrepid Transatlantic sailor Garry Crothers conducted an interview with RTE just before he set sail from the Caribbean. He spoke to Marty Morrissey and told of the effort required to get him and his yacht back to Ireland and the much longed for pint in the Squealin’ pig. Some time later, and after Garry had left terra-firma, Marty spoke to Garry on SAT phone and he had a conversation with Marie about the fears for the solo sailor.
Marty was very impressed with Garrys determination to get back onto the water after his accident and admired his courage to embark on such an adventure. Wishing Garry a safe trip he would keep his radio audience informed of Garrys progress and ultimate arrival back home.
You can listen to the whole interview within the Marty Morrissey show at the following location in the RTE archives, https://www.rte.ie/radio/radioplayer/html5/#/radio1/11199578 the interview with Garry starts about 24′ 49″ and ends at 47′ 50″.
