Some winning and commended entries from last year’s competition 

Photographers – the closing date for entries for the annual National Historic Ships photo competition is coming up fast. Have you entered yet? Perhaps there’s something in your camera right now that would make an entry?

Category B is likely to be of special interest to readers, as it traditional maritime skills, and is intended to highlight hands-on maintenance of vessels, rigging, sailing and boatbuilding in the workplace or classroom.

The first prize is £1000, and category winners stand to win £250 to be spent on maritime training, equipment, tools or educational material – and the runner-up will receive a copy of the book Legendary Classic Yachts published by Adlard Coles Nautical.
