During Saturday's shakedown, GBR75 was joined by a replica of 'America'

We'd like once again to thank Heike Schwab, Nico Martinez, Carlo Borlenghi & the team at Kos Pictures, and of course TEAMORIGIN and Pitch PR for their kindness and assistance in bringing this collection of images together. We'd also like to acknowledge Valencia Sailing for breaking the news of GBR75's voyage and for bringing the first images to public attention.

If you know of or have other images of GBR75's maiden voyage which might contribute to this gallery, please contact The Afterguard by email at theafterguard[at]gmail[dot]com. We'll update this post, revising the date, rather than introducing new posts, so do check back.
