Latest news at at end-February 2013
We have an unfortunate and continuing problem sourcing photographs of yachts finishing and of the prize giving. For some as yet unexplained reason the appointed Island photographer, St Helena Broadcasting Corporation (now named South Atlantic Media Services), who were given the rights to film the GC12 events on the Island, were unwilling to let us have photographs for the website. We are taking this up with the Island authorities as we understand that SAMS is Government funded and have also contacted James Stewart, official reporter for the event, who enthusiastically agreed to send us pics that he took unofficially during the prize giving.
Keep an eye on the Facebook Page for any pictures that might be uploaded.
