Photo Competition 2021 Winners

Club News | December 17th, 2021 | No comments yet

On 8 December we held our annual photo competition.  This year we invited entries that reflected  a member’s boating year, as well as calendar style images, which led to some amusing entries.

Members could submit up to 4 entries, and 1 members entered 38 images in total. Voting was by those in the room identifying their top 3 on an entry list without any ranking.  Alan Gilmour gave a short talk on his experience sailing on Lake Huron while the votes were counted. Thanks to all who submitted photographs and attended on the night.

The honours went to:
First: Alan Gilmour- Through The Round Window
Second: Ralph Evans – Sun Sea & Sail (It doesn’t always rain in Wales)
Third: Stephen Woodhouse – Keep The Boat Flat

See the full gallery of entries here.

On 9 December 2020 we held our annual photo competition, masterminded by Trevor Rackley. This is an opportunity for members to show off where we’ve been sailing, and what we’ve seen, whether braving the real weather around the UK or just waiting for yet another perfect sunset in the Med.

The normal entry limit of 3 photos was increased to 4, and 9 members entered 33 images in total. Voting was by show of hands.  Thanks to all.

The honours went to:

1st Chris Palmer Early Off (2)

First: Chris Palmer- Early Off

2nd Alan Gilmour Light Ahoy
