Offshore Sailing School holds contest for students

Publish date:

Offshore Sailing School announced a new contest for those who want to learn to cruise and start bareboat chartering.

The contest is open to those who take a cruising course at Offshore Sailing School between June 1 and Dec. 31 and write a short story about their learning experience or a related sailing adventure.

Entries will be judged by Cruising World magazine editors.

The prize is a six-day/seven-night bareboat charter in the British Virgin Islands on a three-cabin, 41-foot cruising boat provided by The Moorings, a leader in yacht charters. The winner can enjoy the bareboat charter in 2012.

“Bareboat chartering in the British Virgin Islands is an exhilarating and peaceful holiday getaway,” Offshore Sailing School CEO and president Doris Colgate said in a statement.
