Mutiny – a 21st Century Recreation Speaking Tour

Join The Island Trust’s trustee Conrad Humphreys as he shares his experience of recreating Captain Bligh’s epic voyage of survival. Following the successful series on Channel 4, Conrad will talk about his greatest challenge yet on the high seas.

Conrad has circumnavigated the world three times, including the notorious Vendée Globe in 2004-05, and was selected as the professional sailor and sailing master onboard Bounty’s End. Using traditional navigation equipment and surviving on the same meagre rations as Bligh, the team of nine men led by SAS: Who Dares Wins frontman, Anthony Middleton were cast adrift 35 miles to the south of Tofua near the Kingdom of Tonga in a replica 23ft open keel-less 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.

Conrad has chosen The Island Trust as his nominated charity, and to support our work with disadvantaged and disabled young people there will be a collection on the night.  Alternatively you can donate now through the MyDonate button adjacent to each venue listing.
