Famous Mo #1

As noted earlier today, Movember is on – and while growing my own mo I’ll be posting a famous mo each day for some inspiration/fun.

So lets kick this off with a mo that has sailed the seven seas:

Mo #1: Sir Peter Blake

A remarkable New Zealander, Sir Peter Blake sailed in Whitbread Round the World Races and the America’s Cup and went on to become Head of Expeditions for the Cousteau Society. He was later murdered by pirates while working for the United Nations.

Anyone who grew up with an interest in sailing (as I did) will no doubt be familiar with the man and his mo!

You can donate to Movember to support the Cancer Society and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand via my Mo Space page.
