T01405150737 (TORCH08)Described by the Sunday Times as Britain's greatest every yachtsman, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston made history in 1969 when, after 312 days at sea, he became the first man ever to sail solo and non-stop around the world. In 1993, he completed another first and broke The Jules Verne Round the World speed record as co-skipper with Sir Peter Blake on Enza, this time in just 74 days! Proving age is no hindrance to being a sailor, Sir Robin recently took part in the Velux 5 Oceans Solo Round the World yacht race. Now the great sailor shares stories of his many adventures, and will take questions from the audience.
