It was double glory for Tony Ketley from Marlow in Bucks, when not one, but two of his entries in the ilovesailing calendar competition where chosen to feature in the 2020 ilovesailing calendar.

Picked from among 39 stunning entries for June, Tony was thrilled with his win commenting: "It's always a good feeling to be a winner, but to have two images selected for the calendar is something else. I get a lot of pleasure from taking photographs, but even more when I'm asked if I would share them."

The first of Tony's winning shots is entitled 'The spectacle of Raters at Upper Thames', Tony commented: "I took the Raters image at Upper Thames SC during Bourne End week at the beginning of June this year. The setting of the club is idyllic and makes a wonderful backdrop to the competing boats."

His second shot, entitled 'Join the queue' is an image of Merlins taken at Salcombe in July last year. "This image has a simplicity that is slightly amusing", Tony commented.

As well as his spots on the 2020 calendar Tony also wins:

  • Tickets to the Southampton Boat Show for the official prize giving plus afternoon tea in the RYA Members' Lounge at the Show
  • Canvas prints of his winning shots
  • Two copies of the 2020 calendar
  • RYA goody bags
  • And the much loved and coveted ilovesailing rubber duck
