Prize Draws reward CA Members

Every year the CA runs two Big Prize Draws - Winter and Summer - which are exclusively for members to enter.

"The twice-yearly Big Prize Draws are an excellent way of celebrating and saying thank you to our members," commented Lucy Gray, CA General Manager. "We collaborate with our marine partners to select prizes which will appeal, adding to the benefits of CA membership.

Crusader SailsRun in partnership with the CA’s discount partners, the 2021/2022 Winter Big Prize Draw of a Crusader Sails’ Super Zero Sail opened on the CA stand at the Southampton International Boat Show and closed during Spring Promo Week on Wednesday 23 March 2022. The Super Zero can be easily furled and left hoisted for extended periods with the standard UV strip protecting against the ravages of the sun’s rays, and the prize also included a deck stowage bag. Year-round Crusader Sails supports CA members with a 20% discount off new sails and 15% off sail repairs, furlers and reefing systems.

"The prize draws are always popular and we were thrilled to receive 444 entries for the Crusader Sails Super Zero. Everyone loves the chance of winning, and a huge thank you to members for entering," continued Gray.


Picked at random, congratulations to Graham Ellison who is the delighted winner soon to be picking up his new Super Zero Sail and deck stowage bag for 'Tiptoe Too', a Super Seal 26.

"Thank you so much; your call was a delightful surprise, completely out of the blue," said Ellison after receiving a call from Lucy Gray.

Ellison entered the prize draw at Southampton International Boat Show last year, saying, "It’s always a highlight of the show to visit the CA stand and have a nice chat with the folks there, but even more so last year with the new Captain’s Mate app on display, which left me goggle-eyed with wonder, by the way."

Graham shared a photo of himself sailing, adding, "This is me and my pride and joy 'Tiptoe Too'. On this particular day, I was braving the perils of shoal water, wind and wave, sea monsters and vessels of unknown intent in the perilous and far-flung seas known to those few intrepid voyagers who dare to traverse its little-known waters as ‘The Solent’! As you can see, I’m having the time of my life, and showing off my new hat, bought if I’m not mistaken using a CA discount!"
