The top 20 include some of the world's most prominent yacht racing photographers from all over the world. Their pictures, selected by the international jury, will be exhibited next week at the Yacht Racing Forum, and the winner will be announced during an evening reception at Malta's National Aquarium on Monday 21st November.

We are sure the entire SSL community will be wishing Martina well in the final judging!
