T-Shirt Competition – April 2018

Salty T-Shirt Competition Re-Launches for 2018

Back in 2017 we launched our first Salty T-Shirt competition, encouraging you to wear your SaltyJobs t-shirt in salty situations and send us photos. 

The winner each month gets a free SaltyJobs t-shirt – that’s right, another one – so you can get creative when it comes to the saltiest t-shirts, because you might win a brand new one. Think of them as a blank canvas, and the most salty wins – they are white for a reason! 

We paused the t-shirt competition over the winter, and now it’s time to start it again.

April 2018 Entries

We had some fantastic entries to our Salty T-Shirt Competition in April, kicking off the 2018 season in style.

Here is a round-up of our favourites:

26th April – Jim Higginson – Tall Ship Kaskelot, Gloucester Docks, UK

“Awesome to see the crew of Kaskelot have been working hard during their refit in Gloucester Docks… Jim is a deckhand onboard, and he’s not-so-secretly a pretty handy shipwright too, which comes in useful when you work on a wooden tall ship.”

22nd April – Magali & Oceanpreneur – Antigua Classics Regatta, Caribbean

“SaltyJobs on the rail at Antigua Classics.”

“Me wearing my SaltyJobs T-shirt taking kids on board Ireland Ocean Racing with skipper Nin O’leary it was nice to show the kids what I do for a job. I think they enjoyed it.”

21st April 2018 – John Davies – South West Maritime Academy & Palma Sea School Director

“A few SaltyJobs done today in Palma.”

18th April 2018 – Charlie Besant – Mate, Queen Galadriel, Cirdan Sailing Trust

“New mooring lines, seems like a salty job to me.”

The Winner

The quality of entries this month has been fantastic, and our reach global, with Salty T-Shirt adventures across the UK, in the Mediterranean, and even across the Atlantic in the Caribbean. Your support is absolutely awesome, and it’s fantastic to hear from so many of you out there doing your salty jobs. However, this is a competition after all, and there can only be one winner.

And this month, that has to be Magali & Oceanpreneur, with their awesome photos from Antigua Classics. You can see more here. That’s Magali on the rail, and Suzanne aka Oceanpreneur taking the shots.

Magali and Suzanne are our two fantastic salty crew who have been proudly representing SaltyJobs with a sail-cargo t-shirt (that’s right, we sailed Magali her SaltyJobs t-shirt across the Atlantic) in the Caribbean over the winter. Magali has now jumped aboard another beautiful yacht and is currently in the Galapagos, well underway to fulfilling her dreams of sailing the Pacific. And Suzanne is heading east across the Atlantic for a summer season in the Mediterranean as a newly qualified yacht captain, after helping Vanishing Sail with their online film release, launched at the Antigua Classics. 

We couldn’t think of two better salty crew to be deserving of this month’s salty t-shirt competition. And… I think we’re going to have to find a way to sail their t-shirt prizes to them again!

The Runner Up

We also want to give a special mention to Jim in his fantastically salty t-shirt, taken on one of the first sunny spring days during refit aboard Kaskelot in Gloucester Docks. We love the blank canvas approach. Looking forward to seeing the effects of a whole season’s work, Jim!
