Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image 2017: Top 20 photos are disclosed!

The Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image Award disclosed 20 best sailing photos from all around the world to be presented to the public at World Sailing’s Annual Conference in Puerto Vallarta (November 4 – 12), and then at the Yacht Racing Forum (Aarhus, Denmark, November 27-28).

Overall 134 photographers from 27 countries applied and sent their pictures to the Award committee, and last month 80 shots were chosen. They were published on the website of the Mirabaud Yacht Racing Image contest and were opened for the public vote. Anyone could, and still can leave their votes for the best sailing picture!

Today the best 20 pictures of 20 best photographers were chosen and the official sailing photographer of Barracuda Communication, Marina Semenova, is one of them!!! Her photo will be displayed at the World Sailing’s Annual Conference in Puerto Vallarta on November 4 – 12, and later at the Yacht Racing Forum in Aarhus, Denmark on November 27-28. The participants of these conferences will be able to vote for one of 20 displayed pictures and the winner of that category will be presented the Yacht Racing Forum award.

First of all, a round of applause is in order :)
