This week, Stretch and Stirfry chat to Luke Patience, British Olympic Sailor and Whisky connoisseur.

The boys cover Luke's formative years as a young Scottish sailor, the trials and tribulations of Olympic training and selection, plus his thoughts on how he is adapting to the rescheduled Olympics in 2021. For this pod, Luke was in week six of lock-down on the Isle of Tiree, in the Scottish Hebrides so he had plenty to get off his chest!
