Instagram contest #crocieragdv2015, the choreography challenge continues!


Give or treat yourself to a subscription to the print + digital Journal of Sailing and for only 69 euros a year you get the magazine at home plus read it on your PC, smartphone and tablet. With a sea of advantages.

Bee_instagramNearly 500 photos are battling it out to win the Instagram contest “TAG Heuer Cruise GDV 2015. Don’t Crack Under Pressure.” You are splurging like never before: you are splurging big time this year…. Some people don’t give up the thrill of sailing … on the boom and some people engage in real choreography!

We give you two small examples above, in shots by @asterixeobelix_5 and @elnenas.

What about you, what are you waiting for?

The contest is open to everyone (all you need is a free Instagram account) and runs from August 1-31, 2015. To participate, all you need to do is upload photos (yes, you can participate with as many images as you want) to Instagram using the hashtags #crocieragdv2015 and #dontcrackunderpressure by tagging @giornaledellavela in your photographs.

We repeat, there is no limit to the number of images each participant can post on Instagram to participate.

We also give you a tip: in addition to the hashtags #crocieragdv2015 and #dontcrackunderpressure add as many hashtags as possible. This will give maximum visibility to your photos and a chance for other users to click the mythical “Like” button. Why is it important? Because in choosing the winners we will also take into account the number of Likes the photo has received.

The only limit is your imagination. On a boat, even on the most beautiful vacation, there are times when you may find yourself under pressure: perhaps because of an unforeseen flailing, but also because of the opposite (the tremendous becalming!). Being under pressure, however, can also have a positive value and push us to give our best, never give up and push our limits. Or, will you be able to finish that gargantuan appetizer in the cockpit or bring the entire galley on board?

The second and third place winners will instead enjoy special “#DONTCRACKUNDERPRESSURE TAG HEUER” kits.

Plus this year there is a great new feature! The top three finishers will also win a weekend for two (Sept. 25-27, 2015 with port of embarkation at Marina di Scarlino) in a reserved double cabin in the Tuscan archipelago aboard a 2009 Sun Odyssey 44i (4 cabin + 2 WC) refitted this year. And to enjoy the cruise with peace of mind, the prize also includes the skipper! A special gift thanks to Globe Sailor, through its partner 43rd Parallel. Now come on, get ready to photograph!
