About

On 27 December 1974, Tony Allan, a solo sailor on board his trimaran Rebel II, left Queensland on a return journey to New Zealand. Two days later at 5.45am, while Tony was asleep chaos erupted. In seconds Tony's yacht was inexplicably uplifted and turned end over end on to its cabin top. Tony was thrown out of his berth and onto the rood of his cabin with debris raining down on him. The yachts interior was flooded by a huge wall of water.

At that moment he had no idea that he would have to survive for twenty, lonely challenging days in a life raft.

Miraculously he was signed by an officer on the Khian Star, a cargo ship and was rescued.

This is a gripping and true story of one man's enormous courage and mental will to survive that shows the inner strength possessed by a man thrust in to very difficult circumstances.

Come along and meet Tony and hear all about his book about to be published about his ordeal.

All welcome. Bar open from 7.00pm with talk starting at 7.30pm.
