    Mike Golding – Ocean Racing

    7 for 7:30Cotswold Club

    Mike Golding is one of the world’s most accomplished and successful offshore sailors with over 250,000 sailing miles and podium successes in many of the world’s toughest and most extreme yacht racing events. A former career fire-fighter, Mike turned to professional sailing following his dominating campaign and overall win in the BT Global Challenge 1996/7. In 2006 Mike made international headlines by giving up his own prospects of winning a major solo around the world race to rescue fellow sailor Alex Thomson whose yacht was sinking deep in the Southern Ocean. Mike was subsequently awarded the Royal Humane Society Medal for bravery.

    Mike plans to cover several topics including Vendee Globe Ocean Racing, his rescue of Alex Thomson, the Open 60 Class of boats and some new projects in the pipeline. This is going to be a very interesting evening!
