06 Feb Pete Goss headlines the next Mayflower 400 Speaker Event
Sailor and adventurer, Pete Goss, MBE is set to headline the next Mayflower 400 Speaker Series Event in a partnership brokered by Reg&Co sponsorship agency and sponsored by transatlantic law firm Womble Bond Dickinson.
The event at the Harbour Hotel in Southampton on the 18th March will again explore the key themes of the Mayflower 400 commemoration.
The event is one of a series of seven themed talks that have been taking place over a two-year period commemorating the Mayflower’s 400th year anniversary and the importance of the transatlantic relationship between the UK and the US.
Pete’s talk will explore life-changing decision making, mental resilience and following your dreams. Pete is a sailor and adventurer turned entrepreneur and author of the bestselling book Close to the Wind.
He was awarded the MBE by Her Majesty the Queen when he heroically rescued fellow competitor Raphael Dinelli from the Southern Ocean in the 1996 Vendee Globe single-handed round the world race in hurricane-force winds.
Pete Goss has also walked to the North Pole, kayaked around Tasmania, built Team Philips – arguably the most advanced sailing catamaran ever, recreated the voyage of the smallest migrant vessel ever to make it to Australia and he is also one of the few people to have sailed the original Mayflower route.
This Mayflower 400 commemoration sits at the very heart of the special relationship between Britain and the US. The official programme in 2020 comprises over 400 events that span four Nations – Britain, US Netherlands and Wampanoag – and is anticipated to yield a significant £440m impact on the business turnover across the UK Mayflower compact destinations.
