An evening with Peter Forbes


An evening with Peter Forbes – Share his adventure!

Friday, 12th October 2018 at Beaulieu Village Hall

DOORS OPEN at 6.30pm FOR 7.15pm


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 2016 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.
