Pete Goss, MBE is a Britishmarker yachtsman who has clocked up at sea.

A former Royal Marine, he is famous for his pioneering project Team Philips. He received a Legion d'Honneur for saving fellow sailor Raphael Dinelli in the 1996 Vendée Globe solo around the world yacht race. During a severe storm in the Southern Oceanmarker, he turned his boat around and spent two days sailing into hurricane force winds, finally finding Dinelli in a life-raft that had been dropped by an Australian Air Force plane shortly before his own yacht sank.

He trained the original set of amateur crews for the British Steel Challenge, and competed in the race on board Hoffbräu Lager, coming 3rd overall.

Goss currently lives in Torpointmarker, Cornwallmarker, and has three children: Alex (19), Livvy (17) and Eliot (13).

In June 2008, Goss launched a replica of a 19th century wooden lugger called The Spirit of Mystery. Four months later, he began a voyage from Cornwall to Australia on the boat, which has no modern electrical or navigation systems.
