The categories for the World Superyacht Awards 2018
The Voyager’s Award is presented to the yacht that, in the opinion of the judges, completed the most inspirational cruise during 2017. Cruises that began in 2016 can also be nominated. The owner or a person nominated by the owner (for instance the principal of a charter party but NOT a member of the crew) must have been aboard for a significant proportion of the cruise.
The Voyager’s Award will be judged not only on the voyage but also the way it is described in text, photos and other media.
- A brief account of the cruise. Its length should not exceed three (3) A4 pages. We do understand that many world-roaming yachts are continuously on the move, but for the purposes of this award we ask you to select starting and finishing points that were on your track between the qualifying dates for this year’s event, 1 January 2017 and the 31 December 2017. The text should inform the judges of noteworthy events and landfalls along your route.
- Charts: A minimum of one (1) chart showing the track of your yacht. This should be marked up to show significant stopping places and should also indicate your progress by showing dates at suitable intervals along the track.
- Photographs and video footage
a) Yachts may submit a MAX of 40 photographs taken during the voyage
b) Video footage of the voyage
