Shelton Dupreez - 2018

There are three words that encapsulate the Burgess difference and those three words form our creative brief to you for this year: Experience, Exploration, Expertise. In video, stills or both, we want you to view your yachting adventures through the lens of one or more of those words to frame your unique take on life at sea.
