Franco Ferrero & Kath McNulty s/v Caramor
The Rose Medal - 2016
On 6th January 2016 Franco and Kath left the Falkland Islands for South Georgia, 800 miles east-southeast across some of the world’s most unforgiving seas. They arrived on 12th January, and explored the island for five weeks before leaving on 17th February for the passage back to the Falklands, which they reached eleven days later. During these eight weeks they encountered severe weather both at sea and at anchor – see Flying Fish 2016/2 – and dealt with other problems including a back injury. They clearly had a memorable time, as reflected by their blog and its dozens of stunning photos.
