For this second edition, even more Fountaine Pajot Owners shared their sailing and cruising experiences on Fountaine Pajot catamarans, in magnificent and varied photos.

We received more than 500 photos and videos from around the world. From Portugal to the Baltic Sea, from the Great Barrier Reef of coral in Australia via Asia, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, we were transported by the diversity of landscapes and photos which enlivened this new photo challenge.

Given the high quality and the number of photos published, we decided to award seven participants, according to themes which illustrate various aspects of cruising, from life aboard a Fountaine Pajot as well as current environmental concerns.

A big thank you to all who took part for showing us their worlds and sharing their experiences with everyone under #share_your_emotions_2019 and on Fountaine Pajot Yacht Club.

Find below a look at the seven prizes awarded to Owners and selected photos …
