Pete Goss, world renowned yachtsman and “hero of the high seas”, shares stories from his adventures at Royal Yacht Club of Victoria on 19th March 2009.
Fresh off the boat from his latest voyage, will host an intimate one-off talk in Melbourne.
Pete and his crew (comprising of his younger brother Andy, Pete’s son Eliot and brother in law Mark Maidment) set off from Cornwall in October last year aboard the Spirit of Mystery a hand built 37ft wooden lugger vessel, recreating the epic voyage made by seven Cornishmen 154 years ago.
When he docks in Melbourne at the Royal Yacht Club in March he will have been at sea for five months, travelled 11,800 miles and crossed one of the most dangerous oceans in the world, the Southern Ocean, conquering gale force winds and huge waves.
Attendees will get the chance to gather together with a dram of Talisker whisky and be swept away by Pete’s incredible adventures. All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal and the Australian Volunteer Coastguard Association.
