Compass for the Week of September 18, 2017

Over more than 45 years of cruising with her husband Larry, Lin Pardey has possibly logged more hours at sea than anyone else alive, and also probably done more to document those experiences in books, articles, and videotapes than any other. Pardey came all the way from her home in New Zealand to be at the 41st Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival, where we interviewed her live during the four-hour remote broadcast from the Festival of Phil Andrus’s Tossed Salad on Friday afternoon. This week on the Compass, we bring you a lightly edited version of that live interview.


#95 Teresa Hoffman

(First airdate: September 12, 2017) Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Teresa Hoffman, owner of the Port Townsend Athletic Club. She didn’t set out to own a fitness club. But thanks to hard work, determination and a couple of angel investors, she’s built the Athletic Club into a healthy and growing business. This mother of five spends part of her “off” time tending to eleven horses with her youngest daughter.
