At last, the Proper Course Group Writing Contest Judges Panel has selected the short list of finalists in our deadly serious and highly competitive Navigation contest, and it is time for you to vote to choose the overall winner of the grand prize, Tristan Gooley's book The Natural Navigator.
There were several excellent tales of navigational errors, lost navigators, near disasters... and the panel decided that of this group the best was
The Graveyard of the Pacific by John from PDX.
The judges were pleased to see that Mr O Docker submitted a couple of entries. Always original, always totally nuts, he did not disappoint. So also nominated for the short list is
A History of Navigation, In Verse by O Docker from O Dock.
Finally on the short list we have a blogger who has been blogging about watery bloggy stuff for even longer than me. Educational. Hilarious. Touching. Our final nominee is
Buoy Crazy by Bonnie from Brooklyn.
And now it's over to you. Please go and read all three posts in the links above and then tell me in the comments which of these worthy entries should win the grand prize. Why don't you write me? I'm hungry to hear you.Thank you again to all the writers that participated in the competition. I enjoyed all of your articles.
