An Evening With Pete Goss
An Evening With Pete Goss - Friday 9th April
Yachtsman and inspirational speaker Pete Goss will be in town next month - to help St Ives Jumbo Association raise the final funds needed to complete and launch their second Jumbo Lugger.
Pete should have plenty of interest to say.
His re-enactment of the courageous voyage from Newlyn to Australia in a small fishing lugger is just one of many extraordinary achievements.
Competing in the 1996 Vendée Globe, he turned back into storm-force winds in response to a Mayday from French competitor Raphael Dinelli. This rescue scuppered his own chances after 10 years preparation. His dramatic rescue earned him the Légion d’Honneur.
