Rockall for Royal
Coronation Day 1953 was also the occasion when the news came through that Mount Everest had been climbed for the first time and by a British Expedition. The Royal Jubilee Weekend 2012 may well bring news of the Rockall Jubilee Expedition and a landing on the islet. Read about the aspirations of Nick Hancock (pictured below by the Stornoway Gazette) and his team. He looks forward to making a subsequent attempt on the record for living / existing / surviving on this most remote piece of land within the United Kingdom's territorial waters.
