As things have returned to semi normal this year; some of you will have been able to explore further than up river or down river!
We usually run a photography competition and cruising log competition for PEYC members and this year is no exception.
Cruising Logs: These can be an account of any passage in which you participate either as crew or as skipper. It doesn’t have to be ocean crossing adventures, it has been won by well written accounts of a trip across the Clyde and through the Crinan Canal and of a dinghy cruise to Inchkeith. So whatever your memories of the summer of 2021 now is the time to commit them to paper. Please send them to Cath Coombs as word documents or as PDF.
Photographs: The guidelines are very loose pictures can be of a boat; taken from a boat or generally feature boat and water. You don’t have to travel to exotic locations for your pictures: it has been won be a pin sharp, tightly composed image taken between the bridges. If you’d like to enter please send a maximum of five pictures as high res jpegs to email@example.com I will collate them in a public album and prevail on our judge to deliver a verdict in time for the AGM Previous years entries can be seen here and here
