The "On the Water Reflections" 2010 C&L Photo Contest , where we asked our customers to submit photos of their CL or themselves living the CL lifestyle has resulted in over 60 great pictures, making our job to pick 3 winners pretty tough!

The pictures were judged on content, quality and how they show their CL in their chosen sailing environment.

1st Place and a new Jib Sail was awarded to Tony Wright, for Picture 66. We also liked the story behind the picture, as Tony has a picture of his first CL16, #2136 on our forum CL16 2136 and Picture 53, in which he is sailing his CL16 with his young son and daughter on Georgian Bay on Canada Day 1983. The winning picture is of his adult daughter and her 2 sons in sailing his second CL16 #1000, same bay, on Canada Day 2008. Picture 54 also shows his now adult son & daughter sailing CL16 #1000. Three generations of Wrights sailing CL's in our photo contest, congratulations Tony and thanks for all the great pictures!

1st Place: Tony Wright

We awarded the 2nd place prize of a complete running rigging line kit to Ian McLeod, for Picture #5 of him sailing his CL16 #2325 on Miller Lake, ON. Just a great shot with full sails and sunlight and a great location. He also has an admirer in the foreground, which did not have any influence on the judging! Ian may have misinterpreted the CL Lifestyle as the "Coors Light" lifestyle, but we aren't complaining! Thanks for the pictures Ian!

2nd Place: Ian McLeod

For the 3rd Place prize of a new set of main & jib sheets we couldn't decide so settled on a tie between CL14 sailors Doug Lowles for his picture no. 6, and Andy Baird for his picture no. 13. Great pictures, again showing great locations and CL sailors enjoying their CL's.

3rd Place: Doug Lowles

3rd Place: Andy Baird
