The Life Aquatic – The Lauduccis: Josie, Christian, Nina, Ellamae and Taj

Oct 27, 2016, 12:44 PM

Josie & Christian live aboard s/v Shawnigan with kids Nina, Ellamae and Taj. Christian’s lived the life aquatic for many years while Josie is a fairly recent convert. I recorded this interview a few months ago, before they set off on their round-the-world adventure. They are now underway and you can follow their progress on their terrific blog, In this edition of The Life Aquatic, as well as chatting to Josie and Christian, I also ask Nina, their oldest child, for a little insight into what it’s like to be a kid, taken out of school and carried off on an amazing voyage of discovery. How do children develop friendships? What about school? Find out all this and more. This is a great interview with a lovely family who’ve thrown themselves wholeheartedly into the life aquatic. Speaking to them, I got the impression they may never come home!
