As Offshore Sailing School develops plans for its 50th anniversary celebration next year, a new contest is already under way.
The theme is “How your experience with Offshore Sailing School or your current sailing lifestyle has impacted your life.”
All stories submitted will be gathered in a book of memories for the anniversary celebration in 2014. Anyone who has been touched by Offshore Sailing School is eligible to write a story about a course, lessons, cruise, corporate or university adventure or other program participated in at the school.
The winner receives a six-night/seven-day stay for two in a one-bedroom beach front accommodation at the Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina on Ft. Myers Beach, Fla., with use of a Colgate 26 throughout their stay.
The story should be no more than 500 words and must be accompanied by at least one photo or video to illustrate their story.
Stories can be submitted up to Sept. 15 and will be judged by the editors of Blue Water Sailing magazine. The winner will be announced on or before Oct. 15.
