Boating New Zealand’s Canada-based writer Craig Ritchie has added another accolade to his collection – he picked up third place in the Environmental Awareness Category at the prestigious Boating Writers International contest in Miami. The event is held annually.

The Award was presented to Craig for his All Washed Up? feature in our October 2018 issue. It explores the boating industry’s responsibilities – and possible strategies – for recycling the thousands of derelict old fibreglass hulks littering the landscape. It’s an escalating international problem.
