Last year PERSEUS teamed up with myweekcharter to create a special outreach action: the PERSEUS & Sailing “eco-campaign”!

This campaign was targeted to the general public who sailed in the Mediterranean during the summer 2014. The aim was to encourage voyagers to adopt an eco-friendly approach during their sailing experience. A leaflet on “5 eco-friendly tips" for sustainable sailing was disseminated in chartered sailboats across the Mediterranean through Myweekcharter. Through this leaflet the Sustainable Sailing Photo Contest was launched.

Almost 200 sailors took part in the Sustainable Sailing Photo Contest and sent photos of their sailing experience and life at sea that captured their attention. Sunsets, sail boats, beaches, clear waters, life on board, marinas, coastal or underwater flora and fauna, etc... All the photos that took part in the contest have been posted here on this website, while the Instagram participations are available at #perseussailing.

PERSEUS is pleased to announce the winner: Mr. Pedro Alves. He wins a €1,000 discount voucher for his next sailing trip with myweekcharter. All remaining contestants were entered in a raffle for the second prize of €500 discount voucher for the next sailing trip with myweekcharter and the lucky photo is this one from Mr.Javi Pascual!

Thank you all for participating in the PERSEUS Sustainable Sailing Photo Contest, the results outdid the expectations in terms of content and plurality.

Happy Sustainable Sailing to all!
