Event description

Description

A unique experience to spend time with a modern day adventurer.

Mr Humphreys was the professional skipper onboard the tiny 23ft open boat, Bounty’s End, in the recreation of Captain Bligh’s epic story of survival, Mutiny on the Bounty, for Channel 4. Using traditional navigation equipment and surviving off the same meagre rations as Bligh, nine men were cast adrift 35 miles to the south of Tofua near the Kingdom of Tonga in a replica boat. Their mission, to survive and safely navigate across 4000 miles of open ocean to Kupang, Timor and recreate one of the world’s greatest open boat voyages of British history.

Prior to that Mr Humphreys is a triple round-the-world yachtsman and competed as the youngest entrant in the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race (now Volvo Ocean Race). As skipper, he led his team to victory in the BT Global Challenge. He also became the fifth British yachtsman in history to complete the legendary Vendée Globe, single-handed, non-stop around the world without assistance.

This free event, sponsored by The Guernsey Sailing Trust and the Garenne Group will provide an insight into the Mr Humphrey's life as an adventurer and his life at sea.
