Lymington team reach the peak of Rockall.
Neil McGrigor’s climbing ambition was to reach the peak of Rockall. At 25m above sea level, this does not sound ambitious, but set 300miles out into the north Atlantic and described as the hardest island in the world to land on, the task is not so simple.
Over the May bank holiday 28th/29th May, with the right weather opportunity, Neil lead his team of 4, of Charles Nicholson, Tim Kary and Tony Jenvey all from Lymington, in their open Scorpion 98 RIB, out into the North Atlantic and successfully landed on Rockall. Neil and Charles placed a new beacon on top of Rockall and then spent the night on Halls Ledge 3m from the peak. To put this in perspective, more people have spent the night on the moon, than on Rockall.
