Join dedicated Masters Swimmer Lindsay Price, Captain of the SpaceX Rocket Recovery Vessel, for this riveting interview on Champion's Mojo and learn about how she (mostly) swims seven days a week, breaks glass ceilings in the maritime industry, and lives on a ship for 28 days at a time! 

This remote interview took place while Lindsay was captaining a ship heading east of the Bahamas to recover a SpaceX rocket that was about to be launched into space. She describes watching rocket launches and the excitement of seeing boosters land on the barges she places with her tug boat. Lindsay also chats about splitting her time between Houston and Cape Canaveral, shares her journey to becoming a captain, and advocating for women in the maritime industry. Finally, she talks about her love for swimming, how it has been a constant in her life, her dedication to swimming, and how she thinks it may have played a role in her getting hired at SpaceX!
