I was both humbled and thrilled to learn this morning that three articles I wrote in 2016 won awards in the annual writing competition held by Boating Writers International.
My feature “The Future is Now,” about the use of virtual reality in yacht building, written for Yachts International, earned first place in the news and analysis category. I also earned second place in that same category, for my feature “Miami 2.0,” about changes to the Miami International Boat Show, written for Yachting.
And in the business of boating category, my article “Securing the Boat Show Docks,” written for Compass, earned a Certificate of Merit.
A full list of all the winners is here. Congratulations to everyone who took home awards today throughout the marine-journalism industry!
