Pete Goss MBE
Pete came to the world’s attention in December ‘96 when sailing ‘Aqua Quorum’ the smallest boat in the world’s toughest yacht race – The Vendee Single Handed Round the World Race, when he dramatically turned around and rescued a French yachtsman and fellow rival Raphael Dinelli from his stricken vessel.
Pete became the fastest Briton to sail around the world single handed with a time of 126 days and 21 hours.
United by their adversity at sea, Danelli asked Pete Goss to be his best man at his wedding. The two have since forged a special relationship resulting in them competing together as co-skippers in the Transatlantic Jacques Vabre Race in October 1997.
Pete Goss excels in passing on his exceptional leadership and training skills to get the very best out of people. It was Pete’s ability to motivate and instill enthusiasm in the crews, coupled with his unwavering attention to detail in the planning, preparation and safety of the trip that played a major part in the overall success of the race.
