GOSS VOYAGE in the Southern Ocean CAPTURED ON CANVAS by Gordon Frickers, oils on canvas measuring 76 x 121 cms (30″ x 48″).

As the Pete Goss press release put it: “The renowned marine artist Gordon Frickers has produced a painting that captures the epic voyage made by Westcountry sailor and adventurer Pete Goss MBE in 2008-2009 in the 37-foot long wooden boat Spirit of Mystery”

Captain Richard Nicholls wrote in their log on 6th March 1855: “A terrific gale of wind – heaviest so far experienced. Our gallant little boat rides the mountains of sea remarkably well.”

Pete Goss built and sailed the replica 37’ Mounts Bay Lugger to Australia to commemorate the incredible voyage made by seven Cornishmen in 1854 aboard the original Mystery, the smallest migrant vessel ever to make the perilous journey to Australia.


Pete said “I took it home, made myself a cuppa, sat down and lost myself in it for half an hour. It has everything except the unforgettable noise of the Southern Ocean
