Scuttlebutt Photos:

Junior Sailing Program Photo Contest

Some kids love sailing right away, while others are scared to death. This complete range of emotions occurs in earnest each summer for those children participating in sailing classes at one of the many junior programs that ramp up this time of year.

As a tribute to these programs, we thought it was time for another Scuttlebutt contest, with this one profiling junior sailing in North America. Top ten entries will get posted on the Scuttlebutt website, with the best three earning prizes from Vanguard Sailboats (see prize details below).

How to enter...

  • Submit five photos, one for each of the following categories:

  • * On-the-water beginner class
    * On-the-water advanced class
    * Instructors in action (teaching, rescuing, consoling, etc.)
    * Controlled chaos
    * Humor

  • Entries limited to programs located within North America. Include name of junior sailing program, Program Director contact information, and program website (if available).
