YJA Young Blogger of the Year


Musto supports YJA Young Blogger of the Year

Musto has been encouraging youngsters to come up with media entries about sailing for the Yachting Journalists’ Association’s Young Bloggers Competition.

The top prize is a £100 Musto voucher plus an item of the winner’s choice from the classy British Sailing Team merchandise collection – check it out here – to be awarded at the RYA Dinghy Show in March

Says Nick Houchin from Musto: “We’re involved in all levels of sailing, from grass roots youth sailing to supplying the official kit for ocean racing professionals and the British Sailing Team, so it’s very rewarding for us to encourage the next generation of reporters to share their enthusiasm. “

Digby Fox of the YJA adds: “I’ve always loved the media side of our sport, it’s full of great characters and stories and it’s so visual. I thought the recent batch of media coming off the Volvo Ocean Race boats was outstanding, so maybe this will be a stepping stone in that direction.”

Although entries are now closed, nyone under 21, has been encouraged to send a blog, article, video, photo or audio piece to bloggercomp@yja.world  to enter.

The Yachting Journalists’ Association (YJA) is the top marine media professionals’ network, recognised worldwide. Shortlisted entries to the competition will receive a 2019 photo ID Press Card for free access to boat shows.
