Laughing and smiling, this is the last known photograph of four yachtsmen before they disappeared during a treacherous crossing across the Atlantic.
One member of the ill-fated crew is seen gripping a trophy and champagne after taking the stage on the final day of the Antigua Regatta.
The four sailors were celebrating completing the world famous race in their 40-foot Beneteau vessel, the Cheeki Rafiki.
Just a day later they were reported missing following severe storms as they attempted an Atlantic crossing back to the UK from the Caribbean.
Andrew Bridge, 21, Paul Goslin, 56, Steve Warren, 52, and James Male were believed to have been on board as the yacht began to take on water.
The experienced yachtsmen diverted to the Azores – but somewhere on the way radio contact was lost.
The hull of the vessel was later spotted by a passing tanker but there was no sign that the men were aboard.
It is believed they may have abandoned ship to a life raft.
