SWAPPING SCALPELS FOR SAILS – FINDING YOUR INNER ADVENTURE – Mr Peter Campbell

December 02, 2022

Mr Peter Campbell, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon & Lifestyle Medicine Physician

In early September 2019, Peter set sail from London, as a member of the Team Seattle crew, taking part in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. Eleven identical 70 foot racing yachts with professional skippers but crewed entirely with amateur “sailors” competing to circumnavigate the globe. 40,000 NM split into 8 legs with the total circumnavigation taking 11 months.

Prior to this Peter had very limited sailing experience, so what possesses a surgeon to lay down his scalpel and swap hip & knee replacements for halyards & knots? Join us to share in his Atlantic Ocean sailing adventure, from London to Uruguay –  the inspiration, the high spirits, the sinking doubts, the personal challenges and the life lessons learnt.

Peter has been a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in York for over 25 years and in the last decade has developed an interest in leadership coaching and Lifestyle Medicine

This meeting will be face to face in the York Medical Society rooms and also shared via Zoom.
