Pete Goss returns to the Maritime Museum in Falmouth for third and final Team Philips project lecture
Pete Goss returns to the Maritime Museum in Falmouth on Wednesday 19 October for a third and final lecture about his incredible Team Philips project. This is the last opportunity to listen to the inspirational and charismatic speaker that has already given two sell-out talks to a captivated audience.
Pete Goss first caught the public imagination with his dramatic rescue of French sailor Raphael Dinelli in the 1996 Vendee Globe. All year, the Museum has been featuring a fascinating exhibition about his last adventure, Team Philips, and Pete will be inspiring others to ‘dare to dream’ with his talk on this epic West Country project.
Team Philips was built to be the biggest, fastest and most hi-tech of boats. With wave-piercing bow technology she was specifically designed for The Race – a no-holds barred, no limits, round the world challenge. A global community was drawn together in support of this extraordinary project; 97 million people visited the website, 1.2 million people passed through the visitor centre and 9,212 people signed up to become individual sponsors.
Reflecting on Team Philips Pete said: “Progress is about change and development; by definition, attitudes will always follow one step behind. By accepting the risks we chose to drive in the fast lane. Defeat, however, sometimes has to be accepted. As a team we can look the project in the eye knowing that we gave it our all. We dared to dream and we are proud of what we achieved.”
