Resting place of an iconic Kiwi
Sir Peter Blake was an inspirational New Zealander. A famous yachtsman and ocean explorer for environmental causes, he was murdered by pirates in Brazil in 2001 at the age of 53.
He was buried near the village of Emsworth on England’s south coast, where he had lived with his family.
We made a point of visiting his grave because we were roughly in that part of the world, and because we met him once in the 1980s during his Round the World race campaigns.
The churchyard took a bit of finding but we got there!
