Dave Worsley and Brad Lewis talk with Mike Sanderson, a New Zealand sailor and new CEO of Doyle Sails.
Despite Mike not having any reception, we got there in the end with Brad joking he's hanging from a tree just to make the interview.
Sanderson has sailed from Sydney to Hobart three times and has done the Volvo ocean race four times, as well as being named Sailor of the Year.
He exclaims it's "absolutely vital" that the government gets together and makes something happen for 2018...
He will spend Christmas Day at home, with his family.
Listen to the full interview with Mike Sanderson above.
