You can submit as many stories and pictures as you like, but remember you will be voting against yourself if you submit more than one story or picture in a category.

  • will be limited to adventures this season, and the past season (ie Jan 2009- Nov 2010)
  • adventures do not have to be sailed on a Macgregor or trailer sailer boat. Vacation sailing trips count
  • are to be submitted after Nov 1, 2009 until Oct 31, 2010
  • need to be in text format only. no stories in other formats (.doc, .pdf, etc)
  • are not to be linked to other sites (or NE-TS). They must be in text format in the appropriate forum
  • may be emailed to the webmaster to post for you
  • may be user posted in the appropriate forum if they have an account (or use the link in the members section to log in)
  • By posting a story to the above rules, they will automatically be included in the contest. Let the webmaster know if you would like to post but NOT be included in the contest.
You are encouraged to include pictures in your stories. Those pictures will NOT be entered into the contest unless you let me know you want them included. I think pictures make the stories more interesting, but are not required. You may link to pictures on your own hosting site. We can not be responsible for pictures not showing up due to issues on your hosting site. Email me the images so ne-ts can host them for you for best results.[/size]
