DC's Podcast #2: Dennis in the streets

Copyright © 1987, Daniel Forster

WE PROUDLY PRESENT Dennis Conner's new (for 2017) podcast, sponsored by the Specialty Produce Network. This is the second episode of the four that have already been produced. Entitled "DC in the streets," in 25 minutes the multiple world champion and four-time America's Cup winner, a.k.a. Mr. America's Cup, tells us about growing up around what would be his legacy, San Diego YC and sailing. Learning at the feet from Malin Burnham, Lowell North, Carl Eichenlaub, and why Malin nicknamed Dennis "the SAK." And DC's big piece of heartfelt and valuable advice (TFE recommends!) for parents and kids – "You are a product of your environment. If you don't like what you're doing, change your surroundings and the people you're with. Or parents, change it for your kids." He answers one of his most often asked questions, "Where were your parents during all of this?!"

By the way, the image used for the podcast is the famous photo (in full, above) taken by our longtime friend and esteemed yachting photographer, Daniel Forster, just after DC and his all-American STARS & STRIPES team, sailing for SDYC and the USA, won the Cup off Fremantle, Western Australia in February 1987. 30 years ago – how time flies.
