Summary: Sailing around the world with Peter Forbes
Peter Forbes will discuss 'Sailing around the world' as part of the series of Tollard Talks, held at Tollard House, Tollard Royal, Salisbury SP5 5PP, on Friday 27 October.
At the age of eight, Peter 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 of sailing and the sea. This early happy experience led to the nurturing of a dream to sail around the world. A meeting with Italian beer baron, Rudi Peroni, led to the acquisition of Carango, his 54ft yacht. By 2015 Peter and his wife Vicky were ready to set sail. Paying specific attention to the Panama Canal, the Galapagos and Cape Town, the talk will cover the experiences and exciting challenges that they faced during this long voyage.
