Brian Black Memorial Award for marine environmental journalism

Yachting Monthly and the family of Brian and Lesley Black are excited to launch a new award celebrating inspiring journalism about the marine environment. Applications are invited from anyone who has recently used a sailing boat to explore an environmental issue about which they are passionate. The voyage should ideally have been undertaken in UK, European or Arctic waters to reflect Brian and Lesley Black’s lifelong commitment to this area.

Entries, between 2,000 and 3,000 words, should be submitted by email to, no later than 8 August 2021.
