About Pete Goss

In 1996, Pete Goss rescued French yachtsman Raphael Dinelli, whose boat was sinking during the notorious Vendre Globe - a non-stop race around-the-world in which each competitor sails single-handed. Despite losing his chance to win the prestigious competition, Goss rose to international fame for his bravery and was awarded both an MBE and the French Legion d'Honneur. In the years that have followed, Goss has continued to sail some of the most challenging sea routes and has inspired millions with his book 'Close to the Wind' and via his exceptional skill as a motivational speaker.
