SAILING AROUD THE WORLD WITH PETER FORBES
TOLLARD HOUSE, TOLLARD ROYAL, SALISBURY SP55 PP
FRI 27 OCT, DOORS OPEN 6.30 FOR 7PM TALK
At the age of 8, Peter Forbes was taught to sail by his mother in a felucca at the confluence of the Blue and the White Nile in Khartoum – this engendered a lifelong love for sailing and for the sea. This early happy experience led to the nurturing of a dream over the intervening years to sail around the world. A meeting with Italian beer baron, Rudi Peroni, led to the acquisition of Carango, his beautiful 54ft yacht and to their training in its management. By 2015 Peter and Vicky, his wife, were ready to set sail and to fulfill this dream by embarking upon their epic journey. Paying specific attention to the Panama Canal, the Galapagos and Cape Town, the talk will cover the interesting experiences and exciting challenges that they faced during this long voyage.
