Musto is encouraging youngsters to send media entries about sailing to the Yachting Journalists' Association's Young Bloggers Competition.

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

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."

If you're under 21, send a blog, article, video, photo or audio piece to by December 31st to enter. If the file is over 10 Megs, use a WeTransfer link.
