I am happy to announce that the popular Currents Cover Photo Contest is happening again this year.  Our monthly “PDF” publication needs the best photos of your boats to grace its covers for 2024!

In addition to the chance to show off beautiful boats and great photography skills, winners will receive Currents credits towards their membership fees. So, if you are a BCA member in good standing, please submit the best, recent photos of your vessel.

A panel of judges, drawn from the Currents team and representing each chapter, will select the 12 winning shots that will make the monthly covers of Currents in 2024.

Now that many BCA members are offshore enjoying bluewater cruising, we look forward to seeing some of those exotic places, but photos taken in any location are welcome.

The process for submitting and some of the rules have changed this year, so please read the instructions carefully!
