Sail America is asking sailors to submit photos to help develop a new SailAmerica.com website and increase sailing representation on DiscoverBoating.com.
Both sites are looking for images that depict the sailing lifestyle and they are asking sailors to submit their favorites for consideration.
“Help us work toward our mission of promoting the sailing industry and share some of your favorite sailing day shots,” Sail America said in a statement. “We are looking to put faces to the experience of sailing. We need photos of people out enjoying the water.”
The group asks that people refrain from submitting “running shots” of boats standing alone and instead focus on action shots of happy and smiling faces.
“For example, we would prefer a shot of a father and daughter trimming a sail to a long-range shot of a boat in the distance,” the release read.
It’s important that photos are high-resolution — at least 300 dots per inch — to provide the most flexible use.
