For one night only, Dame Ellen MacArthur will be giving a talk as part of the Round Britain tour raising funds for the Ellen MacArthur Trust. This will be the first time Ellen has spoken publicly about her life since her world record-breaking circumnavigation, which ended just outside the Maritime Museum in 2005.
Ellen will be recounting stories about her varied experiences at sea, as well as talking about her work with the Ellen MacArthur Trust and her plans for the future.
“I’m really excited about coming back to Falmouth, which holds so many great memories for me. I received an unbelievable welcome there when I completed my round-the-world voyage in 2005 and this will be my first return visit since that incredible day. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall gave us a lot of support then, and we’re really grateful that they are doing the same again, this time in aid of our The Ellen MacArthur Trust and our Round Britain voyage. I can’t wait to be back.”
All the money raised from these talks will benefit the Ellen MacArthur Trust.
