Many sports are part of the Olympics and the games in 2012 will be no exception. We are in discussions with many organizations that are part of the the Olympics in 2012 with regard to marshalling and helping at events such as sailing at Weymouth and Portland. With our broad range of maritime skills, we are sure to be a great asset to the Olympic games in 2012.
