Big Top, Lodge Grounds



Sir Robin was the first person to sail single handed and non-stop around the world. With his yacht Suhaili packed to the gunwales with supplies he set off on a voyage that was to last just over ten months. He arrived back in Falmouth after 312 days at sea, on 22 April 1969, securing his place in the history books. Among many other races, in 2007 Sir Robin circumnavigated again in the VELUX 5 OCEANS race at the age of 68. He has been UK Yachtsman of the Year for an unprecedented three times in 1969, 1995 and 2008, and was the first International Sailor of the Year in 1995. He is proud Founder of the Clipper Race, a record-breaking 40,000 nautical mile race around the world of a 70-foot ocean racing yacht. Here at Fringe by the Sea, he will be in conversation about his incredible adventures and achievements.
