I am humbled and honored to say that I won three awards today in the annual writing competition of Boating Writers International.
One was a third-place prize in the Seamanship, Rescue and Safety category for “When the Call Came,” the story of a harrowing rescue at sea that I wrote for Yachting magazine. (We called it “Rescue in the Atlantic” for the online version.)
My other two wins were honorable mentions for articles that I wrote in Soundings magazine. “Whales Return to the Big Apple” won in the Environmental Education and Awareness category, and “Voice Forensics May Help Nab Mayday Callers” won in the Boating Issues, News and Analysis Category.
Many other great writers won as well, including several at Yachting, Soundings, Angler’s Journal and Soundings Trade Only, all of which I do work for as a freelance editor.
Congratulations to all the winners!
