Exclusive: Lisa Blair's Antarctic Adventure Talk

Our Members and their guests are invited to an exclusive talk on Sunday 16 July by the highly esteemed and inspirational sailor Lisa Blair.

Enjoy a thrilling story as Lisa recounts her epic voyages around Antarctica in 2017, where her mast came crashing down in a storm and she was thrown into a survival situation. In her first Antarctic record attempt, Lisa was regularly faced with snow storms, blizzards, 100km/h winds and waves the height of a five-story building, and she almost didn't live to tell us of this truly epic adventure.

Lisa pushed past her self-doubt and returned to the Southern Ocean in 2022, becoming the first woman and fastest person to complete this solo, non-stop and unassisted voyage.

Throughout this story, Lisa will cover topics such as resilience, managing fear and self-doubt, tracking through storms, celebrating the small wins and her passion for sustainability and Climate Action Now.

This talk is a fundraising event with all money raised through ticket sales going to Lisa for her future voyages.

If this inspiring story works up your appetite, Sunday Pizza Night will also be held in the CCA following the event. Reservations are essential.
