Once again, the highly anticipated results of the Currents Cover Photo Contest are in! Over the last two weeks of November and the first week of December 2021 we received 90 amazing photo submissions to vie for the chance to grace the covers of  Currents during 2022. These are great submission numbers, so thank you all for your keen participation and enthusiasm.

After much thoughtful deliberation by the BCA Communications team, the winning photos were selected and are posted in this photo album for all to enjoy.

We would like to thank everyone who submitted photos for the contest. There were some awesome submissions, and really, they were all winners in our eyes! Having said that, we had to choose 12 for the PDF covers of Currents in 2022. So, without further ado, the winners are (in no particular order):

  • Angela Minshall, Katie M II
  • Anne Woodson, Full and By
  • Brent Alley, Pegasus II
  • Catherine Norrie, Pixie
  • Hans Forssander, Mayaluga
  • Ian Cameron, Cora Jane
  • Jason Bowman, Dobro Dani
  • Karina McQueen, Sea Rover II
  • Melanie Finley, Swift of Southampton
  • Nick Ward, Ty Dewi
  • Shawn Wright, Callisto
  • Stefanie Schulz, Fortitude X

Winners of the 2021 Currents Cover Photo Contest will receive a $10.00 Currents credit to be applied to their membership dues.

I will sign off with a great big “thank you” to the Currents judging panel, who stepped up to the plate and helped select the best photos based on the given criteria. It was no easy task! Thank you so much.

    Great selection of photos!! All about sailing. Could not help but notice there are no pictures from bad weather days? Wonder why?

    1. Yeah, Peter, there were no “bad weather” submissions. Maybe due to the fact that one’s hands are busy with stuff happening on the boat to be able to grab the camera or phone! That is a good challenge for next year’s contest though… bring on the bad weather photos!
