Lifestyle : Boat Show 2011
1HERSA1 S007 DOYLE HAS FURLED GENOA PRICES 20%* The Sydney Morning Herald July 23- 24, 2011 7 SPECIAL REPORT A photographic competition has inspired the boating community to capture those special moments on the water. VISIONS SPLENDID Wet and wild . . . (clockwise from top left) Lachlan's Sailboat, taken at Long Jetty, NSW, by Lachlan's mum, Annette Blattman; Here Comes a Wet One, by Tony Hearder, taken in Bass Strait during last year's Sydney to Hobart; Ahoy There, by Charley Jones, taken at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club in Pittwater; Manly Marina in Winter 2011, taken in Brisbane by Lanny Edey; Whitsundays, by Ingrid Hendriksen; Sydney Heads During the Jessica Watson Arrival, by Michael Adams. P erhaps it's the sun setting blood-red against a summer sky, the morning light reflecting off a glassy harbour or the look on the face of a child who is discovering boating for the first time. It could be the moment a pod of dolphins starts weaving about the bow or the second a truly monstrous wave crashes onto the deck. This is the stuff boaties live for. It's why such great stories are told after a day on the water, when the salt is in your hair and your face has been battered by the wind. Plenty of inspiration is to be found on and around the water, which is why the standard is always so high at the Sydney International Boat Show's annual photographic competition. It is a showcase of outstanding photographs taken by the boating community. This year's winners of the judges' awards and the people's choice awards will be announced on the last day of show. Prizes include $500 Digital Camera Warehouse gift vouchers and a $200 Sturrocks voucher. Last year's winner of the judges' and people's choice awards, Matt Clark-Bruce, photographed a winter sunrise while fishing at the mouth of Marramarra Creek on the Hawkesbury River. More than 420 entries were received this year. Here are some from the outstanding field.
