Upcoming Photo Contest Theme

learning to sailAs you may be aware, each month we have a friendly competition on Facebook to determine the sailing photo of the month. To enter the competition, all you have to do is “like” our Facebook page and post your picture on our wall with a short description. You can also tweet it to us or even email it if you need to.

These photo contests also have themes. In the past we’ve done, “Your Best Day on a Boat,” “Sailing Pets,” “Winter Sailing” and more. I’m very excited about this month’s theme, which is:

First Time Sailors/Skippers

We know there are a lot of great pictures out there of people going sailing or learning to sail for the first time. (Extra kudos if the picture is from an ASA course!) And we want to include as many people as possible, so please also share pictures of yourself or a friend skippering a boat for the first time. This is all about sharing the excitement of learning to sail with the American Sailing Association.

Please note, I’ll be away on vacation through April 22, so the contest will commence after I return. Take the time between now and then to look through your pictures, or even better, to take new ones! Happy sailing and I can’t wait to see your snapshots. –Ben
