North & South sea story competition for young readers

Over this summer, North & South and Libro International will be running a competition for school-age writers, inspired by the November release of Out on the Water: Twelve Tales of the Sea, by Tessa Duder with illustrations by Bruce Potter.
Young storytellers aged 15 and under are invited to submit stories based around the sea (or lakes, for those living inland) of up to 1000 words, for a chance to win a school visit and writing advice by Tessa, along with signed copies of Out on the Water.

The deadline for entries is 16 February 2015. 

For competition details, check the January 2015 edition of North & South, on sale now.

Out on the Water at the Blake Regatta

Torbay Sailing Club hosted another fantastic two days of sailing for the Sir Peter Blake Regatta over the past weekend. Click here for the Blake Regatta site

Tessa Duder with renowned sailor and MC, Mark Orams
Tessa Duder attended the prizegiving on the Sunday afternoon, where she joined MC Professor Mark Orams to give away two signed copies of Out on the Water: Twelve Tales of the Sea to the young girl and boy sailors who had travelled the furthest to take part in the sailing.

This young winner had travelled from the Bay of Islands
Out on the Water includes a story based on a young Peter Blake sailing with his brother, and another about a girl's first Optimist regatta - something familiar to all the Green Fleet sailors on the weekend.
It was beautiful 'out on the water' at the Blake Regatta - well done to all the participants and the hard-working organisers
