Susie: 4 years at sea


This is the version of the event that will be held physically at Trivet restaurant, a really great restaurant. The price includes dinner. Please get there at 6:30 pm for drinks (dinner at 7 pm).

We are very pleased to listen to Susie Partridge, an amazing modern adventurer who has brought it all back to business

In 2013, aged 32, Susie left a successful career in marketing to pursue her ambition to sail around the world. Motivated by a natural curiosity about people and cultures, Susie set off with her now-husband, Tom, on an adventure of a lifetime. A story that has been featured in several books and magazines, they spent four years sailing around the world, exploring off-the-beaten track places on their 46-foot yacht, Adina.

Susie will talk to us about the highlights – from crossing the Panama Canal, to spending a month at anchor amongst the wildlife in the Galapagos Islands, living as part of village communities in remote Pacific islands and getting engaged at a vineyard in Franschhoek, South Africa – and how she approached the challenges – from learning to live self-sufficiently on board with supplies sometimes days or weeks away, sailing 24-hours single-handed to get Tom to the nearest hospital when he fell seriously ill, and the challenges regularly thrown at Adina and her crew by the weather.  

Susie will share what it taught her, how it changed her perspective on life back on land and how it gave her the confidence to set-up her own marketing consultancy, focused on helping people and brands succeed.

To complement Susie's round the world tour, we will taste 6 very unusual wines.

TRIVET is a collaboration of Isa Bal MS, Jonny Lake Chef and Melissa Furgus Restaurant Manager all from The Fat Duck. It is an amazing restaurant where food and wines complement each other. A unique opportunity to experience the best of both world at a very reasonable price. It is just before Christmas so join us for a fantastic evening!
