Hansa Class UK Art Competition On the Water Winner: June Woolley © June Woolley

Our competitive circuit usually starts in April, but so far this year we have been unable to enjoy any of the Hansa sailing events. We tried to come up with innovative ideas to engage our sailors during the lockdown; as well as organising VR racing we thought it would be fun to encourage creativity and positivity through our social media.

We launched the Hansa Art Competition back in May and we have been overwhelmed with the entries we received! It became clear that Hansa friends from all over the globe wanted to get involved and we have had artworks from Hong Kong, Australia and The Philippines! We had 4 categories to enter; 'on the water', 'onshore', 'lockdown sailing fix' and 'design a boat'. All the entries were shared on our Facebook page (Hansa Class UK) as well as our Instagram and Twitter feeds (@HansaClassUK).

We thought your readers might like to see some of the winners. We are so delighted with the response we received and thank everyone who participated.

The prizes go to:

Category 1 (On the water)
Winner - June Woolley
Runners Up - Pat Crowley's painting by Ian McNair, and Herbert Spedding

Category 2 (On shore)
Winner - Gillian Campbell
Runner Up - Nicky Durston

Category 3 (Lockdown sailing fix)
Winner - Judith Riggs
Runner Up - Peta Etherton

Category 4 (Design a boat)
Winner - Rory McKinna
Runner Up - Lo Lok Ting
