Coastal Classic Photo Comp: It's back for 2019!

1 October 2019 | 36 Degrees News

If you've got time to sip a coffee, make a cheese platter, or turn the roast on, you'll definitely have time to snap some photos during your cruise northwards in the Coastal Classic Cruising Rally Division. 

The photo contest was well received last year, with everything from snoozing skippers, to smiling crew, and serene sunsets. So we've decided to put the challenge out there again! 

Crew from the returning boat 'Dream Weaver' took out the prize last year for their sundowner photo (below) and the 36 Degrees team enjoyed seeing updates from the cruisers while on route to Russell. See last year's photos on our Facebook album here. 



From leaving the Waitemata Harbour to sailing along the Tutukaka Coast and watching the infamous Cape Brett emerge on the horizon – there's some breathtaking scenery to enjoy throughout an ever changing view.

We will have a prize for the best story captured in a picture, which will be awarded to a boat in the Cruising Rally division prior to the official prizegiving in an informal meet and greet in Russell on Saturday 26 October. More info on this will be sent directly to participants of the Cruising Rally. 

You can choose to:

  • Email your photos to or via text on 0212842662

  • Send via Facebook Messenger to 36 Degrees Brokers.

  • Upload to Instagram with the hashtags #CoastalCruisers2019 and #piccoastalclassic

So go on, whether you're anchored up along the way enjoying the sunset, watching dolphins play while sailing, or just simply documenting the happy crew enjoying the serenity - send us your moments and we'll see you in Russell!
