John and Morene Metzner’s annual photographic competition is one of the most popular winter Wednesday night events at Minima, each year attracting a good turnout of photographers and voters alike. This year’s competition, held on 26 February, was no exception.

There were 45 entries in two categories, Minima Yacht Club (21) and Open (24). Voters were allowed one vote in each category, cast by ballot slip. The clear winner in the Open category was Pat Rowlandson’s shot of Bob the Jack Russell terrier relaxing in the Club bar.

In the Minima Yacht Club category the winner was decided by a tie-breaker. The prize went to Andy Cuckson for his photo of Minima’s kayak adventurers at the White Swan, Twickenham in July 2013, and his tie-breaking shot of competitive sailing (Rob and Anne Mayley in pursuit of Andy Banks and Brian Cheetham) at the Barclays Bank Trophy event, also in 2013.

Prizes of Minima engraved ½-pint beer mugs were presented by Rear Commodore Kathy Collins. The winning photographic entries are featured here.
