Video: Conrad Humpreys on the Bounty Launch

Find out what Conrad thinks of our replica


Conrad Humphreys  is a competitive sailor, who’s sailed around the world three times in some of the sailing world’s most famous races.

He is now also renowned for being professional skipper on the ambitious recreation of Bligh’s legendary small boat journey for Channel 4 programme Mutiny.

Here Conrad takes a look at one of his highlights from the Captain Bligh: Myth, Man and Mutiny exhibition, the replica Bounty launch.

The in-house build of the Bounty launch at the museum, is part of a programme of reconstructions of historical craft in the museum’s boatbuilding workshop.

Captain Bligh: Myth, Man and Mutiny brings to life one of the greatest small boat survival stories in history featuring relics from the voyage and the specially built reproduction of the launch.
