2018 Photo Competition

It doesn’t matter whether you have an expensive camera, a straightforward pocket one or just your mobile phone. And feel free to interpret the themes as widely as you like.

As a separate competition Cruisers are invited to submit a cruise diary - this may be an illustrated account of one of theClub Rallies or an individual cruising venture.

Contributions for the Yachter or Club website about members’ experience on cruising events or longer distance sailing venture will automatically be entered for the competition as will photos submitted for publication.

Both competitions will close onSunday, October28. Winners will be announced at the Cruisers’ Dinner on Saturday, November 17.

The competition will be judged by the Commodore, the Club Editor, and an independent guest judge. Their decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into. There is no entry fee, so just check the rules and send your entries to the Yachter Editor with your name and contact details, and for photos, a title and when and where taken.
