Kannad Marine will give away a SafeLink Solo PLB monthly to a person or group set to embark on an adventure that involves a challenge on water.

The competition is running on the Kannad website at www.kannadmarine.com/giveaway. Kannad is a McMurdo Ltd. brand.

"We have literally dozens of requests for sponsorship, and for EPIRB and PLB loans every week," said Claire Morby, marketing coordinator at McMurdo. "Therefore we decided that the fairest way was to pick the best proposal each month. All the applicant has to do is provide information about their project through our online signup facility."

SafeLink Solo PLBs are likely to be awarded to adventurers who plan to go faster or farther than those before them and those who plan to undertake original innovative challenges.

Applicants are asked to detail their plans and why they believe they should be carrying a Kannad Marine PLB. The best proposal will be selected each month; the winner will receive a $390 SafeLink Solo.

"Many of our adventurers are also raising money for charity, and we are pleased to be able to support these worthy causes by helping our winners to publicize their projects and to keep themselves safe at the same time," Morby said.
