Youth sailors share their favorite place to sail & tell us how they protect it!

This summer, and into the fall, we ran a social media contest encouraging young sailors to show us their favorite place to sail and tell us how they protect it! We were overwhelmed by the beautiful photos and amazing stories about how youth sailors are protecting the waters they love. We are also very excited to see that the next generation of sailors - is also the next generation of ocean stewards!

While the prizes were pretty amazing (a brand new Gill spray top and a feature of their photo in Sailing World) we think the most exciting part of the contest was seeing the variety of different places people love to sail! We gathered as many submissions as we could fit in our blog and shared them in the slideshow above - we hope you enjoy them as much as we have!
