January Photo of the Month: Holiday Edition

Category : American Sailing Association, Members, Sailboats, Social Media

Christmas only comes once a year, but our monthly Facebook photo contest is always right around the corner. This time our theme (as chosen by you) was “Holidays on a Boat.” From the many great submissions via Facebook, Twitter and email, one was voted the best by the discerning ASA readership. (You can view the full album of entries here.)

WINNER:
This is the boat that just can’t seem to STOP winning things. This was SailTime Channel Islands’ WINNING entry in the Parade of Lights – Over 30′ sailboat in the commercial division. Not to mention they’ve won 3 years in a row! Photo by STCI member Randy Bush, submitted by Chris Tucker.

RUNNER-UP:
This charming scene was captured by Lisa Batchelor Frailey, who describes it thusly: “On the Kent-Avon Canal, Semington, UK. What a cozy place to spend Christmas! The most wonderful pub is just up the path…” Sounds good to me!

EDITOR’S CHOICE AWARD:
One of these pictures was not like the others, so I have to give a nod to our “most magical” entry, from Janet Gunn via her brother Wayne.

We hope you enjoyed these and we’d love for you to come join the conversation with us on Facebook and Twitter!
