This also includes refit nominees in any length over 79 feet, power or sail, as long as the work was extensive enough to comprehensively change and upgrade the vessel.

Required for entry are:

• As many as 30 photos, sized under 1 MB, of all technological and innovative features that are noteworthy and that judges might find of interest

• A complete vessel description, one to three pages long, explaining why the boat is an outstanding design
