Go Boating and Win Big

Participation in PMY's Mid-Summer Boating Fest could earn you 3 days in the Abacos.

Fuel prices are too high. The kids have lacrosse camp. Things are crazy at work. We get it; despite promising yourself you were going to use the boat more this year, life, like it tends to do, has found a way to tether you and your boat to land.

That’s why we’re throwing the challenge flag. In his April Logbook, editor-in-chief George Sass Jr. proposed a pact that the editors and you, our readers, leave life’s worries on the dock and go boating on July 12th, a date that has been dubbed the Mid-Summer Boat Fest. Whether that means taking a couple kayaks out to the end of the canal, pointing the bow of your Nordhavn to the San Juans, or hammering your express cruiser across the Gulf to Bimini, it makes no difference to us. We just want you to make some memories and be reminded of why you got into boating in the first place.

When you return to the dock, we ask that you send your snapshots to us via along with a short story of your favorite boating memory, whether it was made that day or decades earlier. In exchange for your submission, you will be entered to win Power & Motoryacht swag, a place of prominence in our December issue as well as a 3-day stay at the Abaco Beach Resort & Boat Harbour Marina on us. Now, what was your excuse again?
