A word from our judge, Phil Soltysiak
I’d like to thank everybody for participating in the contest. There were lots of really good photos and it was hard to choose the top few and most importantly my favourite photo. Here are the top 4 shots along with a winner amongst them.
2009 Grand Prize Winner
Sandbanks (SBX) MacDonalds Point
Frozen in time. Overpowered 3.2 - 3.8 afternoon. Awesome sailors from Ontario and Quebec converged to wreak havoc on the meaty waves.
"A very bright and colourful photo. I chose this one as the winner because it reminds me that Canada can also throw down some windy and fun windsurfing."
Cool, but an exelent day. Took my go pro camera out but did not ralize it was on picture mode. here one of the 1000 pix it took.
"This one has very nice colours and the angle is different than all other photos submitted. It’s also cool the way the spray was captured."
Pierre Morneau threw this in the shallows. Hit the top of the mast on the solid rock bottom but still made it around.
"Great action shot. I think any photo where the sailor was captured inverted deserves its respect. "
Freestyle at Lake Erie
"I like this shot because you can see that the conditions weren’t the best with that wind shadow on the inside, but the sailor is still making the most of it."
