Photo Contest Results: October 2018

The images competing for your votes during October included some terrific and unusual images. There was a lot of activity in the voting department, too, but the clear winner was Marc R. of Simi Valley, California, with this wonderful capture of intergenerational fun on a Kaholo stand-up paddleboard. "My father built several Kaholo paddleboards over the last couple years," Marc wrote. "In August, we camped at Huntington Lake, California. and my son Timothy, who is 4 years old, built up the courage to learn how to paddleboard with Papa. Once he got the hang of it, we couldn’t get him off." We can see why. Congratulations, Marc, on your photo contest win - we're sending you a $150 CLC gift certificate!

Kaholo by Marc R.

All of our top three finishers every month are automatically entered in our end-of-the-year annual competition for the big $1,000 CLC gift certificate, so our runners-up also are still in the running.

PocketShip by Robert S.

The second place image came in from Robert S. in Wausau, Wisconsin. "I built Pocketship in my one-car unheated garage," he explained. "The photo was taken as she neared completion. She has been sailed hard for two seasons. I could not be happier with her."

Chesapeake 17LT by Jeff D.

Jeff D. earned the third-place spot with this pretty portrait of his Chesapeake 17LT as he was preparing to paddle in the Estero Aquatic Preserve in Bonita Springs, Florida. Jeff reported that his longest trip with the boat was a weekend paddle with his son from St. Mary's, Georgia, to tghe Cumberland Island National Seashore. "Northbound on an incoming tide against south bound 15 knot breeze," he wrote, "the boat occasionally suspended on one and one half foot swells, both ends out of the water. It was awesome. Never felt in danger. Wonderful boat." Wonderful photo, too!

Congratulations, all, and thanks to everyone who submitted a photo or two for participating! At the end of this year we'll round up the top finishers in each month's voting during 2018 (including these three) and put them up for voting for the overall annual winner, who'll earn a $1,000 CLC Gift Card.

Keep the good photos of your fine CLC craft coming, and don't forget to check in every month and vote for your favorite.
