Hi everyone just a quick reminder for the upcoming photo competition. Please see below for details. Photo Competition You can enter photographs into one or all of the categories that you are eligible for. 1. Sailing General (must include water and a boat, but up to you how you interpret this. Let your creative side show) 2. Sailing Action (Self explanatory) 3. Captions (Your photo must be to do with sailing or the club and include your best caption on the front, funny, poignant, but not rude) 4. Juniors (This is open to under 16yrs only and can be anything you want to do with sailing on or off the water. You can also enter the other categories if you wish. ) Print your photo at A4 size or slightly small if you need to, clearly write on the back, your name and the category that you wish the photo entered into and give it to me in an envelope. By Sun 17th Nov Please Do Not send me digital photos as I don’t have a printer Don’t show your photo to anyone else as this will spoil the fun of anonymous judging. I will put all the photos up at the AGM on 24th November and everyone will be able to vote for their favourite to the win. ******Good Luck and Happy Snapping. Paddy Clark*******
