I struggled to the hatch and threw it back.

It was like a war scene.

The mast had snapped and Keir's legs were pinned by it and were about to snap like a couple of carrots.

"Cyril" had been thrown over the side and had smashed his rib cage. "Purkiss" had snapped his leg just below the knee and was bleeding profusely from a head wound.

Another monster wave like that and it would have all been over.

It was time for action!!


Hi, my name is Tony Mowbray, welcome to my web site. I hope your visit is enjoyable and worthwhile for you.

I am very passionate about everything I do with that passion flowing through to my public speaking leading to comments such as Spellbound, Dynamic, Remarkable, Enthralling, Gifted Speaker.

Sailing has got me into some pretty tricky situations over the years:

The 1998 Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race is a topic that nearly everyone wants to hear about. I was there in my boat, Solo Globe Challenger in a two and a half day ordeal that included a 15 hour period where death was just a 60 foot wave away.

Hear about my upcoming attempt to sail Single Handed, Non Stop, Around the World and the planning and goal setting required for such a huge logistical exercise that has only been completed by three Australians.

Sailing Non-Stop around Australia and raising over $100,000 for various charities have combined with my other adventures to provide me with plenty of unique, interesting and inspirational topics to speak on.

My 23 years in sales and marketing including 10 years as managing director in the services and communications sector allow me to deliver a Corporate Message that encompasses:-
