Sing us a song, we can all sing along….

Send in a video or voice recording of you, or your and your merry band, singing your favorite sea shanty during your Summer Sailstice celebrations.

Sing solo, or together, with music or A cappella…

Judges will be looking for fun and originality. Rhythm, harmony and musical skills are optional!

The full list of Prizes is yet to be announced, but we thought you might like to start practicing now.

Take a look at 2018's winning entry - 

2018 Sea Shanty Shake - Auguste Fortin

August and Camille Fortin's  redition of "Barrett's Privateers"

Or if you prefer a little backing music, perhaps you'd like to send us a shanty like the Jolly Roger Pluckers and the Summer Sailstice Pirates' Drunken Sailor - 

'Drunken Sailor' by the Jolly Roger Pluckers and the Summer Sailstice Pirates

Whatever style you like and whatever song (or songs) you want to sing, start now. Get the band together, break out the rum and start practicing, the competition could be tough!
