New Photo Competition launched with top prizes to be won

07 June 2016

New for 2016, we are delighted to launch a photo competition for Plymouth Yacht Haven customers. Berth Holders and visitors are welcome to enter by submitting their photos in one of the following 3 categories.

1. Wildlife

Plymouth Sound and the Devon and Cornwall coastlines are brimming with wildlife. Whether you snap a basking shark, a pod of dolphins or one of the many unique birds only located in the south west, your photo could be the winner! An additional prize will be offered if you capture a photo of the elusive seal that lives near the marina! 

2. Sailing

We are fortunate to all enjoy a leisure activity that is, arguably, the most photogenic activity in the world! So while out on the water, make sure your photos capture what you love about sailing. It might be the vastness of the ocean sea, the peacefulness of a new anchorage location or a sunset through your porthole window.

3. Sailing Life

The social element of sailing is infamous! Whether your favourite times on-board are teaching friends about sailing, the apres-sailing atmosphere around the marina pontoons, or simply enjoying a special moment on-board with loved ones, this category will challenge you to capture these moments!  


The winner in each category will win a £50 voucher for The Bridge Bar & Restaurant. The additional prize in the wildlife category is a bottle of champagne.

By entering the competition, your photo may also be used in our 2017 Marina Handbook & Tide Tables!

How to enter

Simply send your high res photo(s) to plymouth@yachthavens.com before the 31st August 2016. The winners will be announced by 30th September 2016 and contacted by email. The winning photos and selected runners-up will also have their photos published on the official Plymouth Yacht Haven Facebook and Twitter accounts.

By entering the competition and submitting your photos, you give Yacht Havens permission to use these photos in marketing and literature materials. If you would like your photos credited, please state this when entering the competition.
