The Cruising Association’s annual Log Competition sees nine trophies awarded to members for the best log of a cruise carried out in the recent season in a variety of categories.
In addition, the osCA, sponsored by Haven Knox-Johnston, is awarded for the best video log of a cruise. This year it was won by Graham Keating for ‘The post-lockdown shakedown – a cruise west from Dartmouth’.
Highlights of the log entries from 2020, a most unusual year, include Alan Kohler’s winning entry in the Yachting World Family Cruising Trophy: Best log of a family cruise.
Judge Cathy Brown said: “Forced by Covid restrictions to abandon his plan to take his grandchildren through the Crinan Canal, Alan Kohler came up with the idea of taking them day sailing – entirely permitted within the rules. This log records some of the shortest voyages ever mentioned in the CA log competition – in one case only 200m!”
All winners received certificates and an engraved gift. For more details and the full list of winners visit: www.theca.org.uk/news/2020_log_comp_winners
