May 2013

World leaders in marine electronics, Raymarine, has announced the first lucky winner of its NEW and exciting monthly Dragonfly™ Screen Capture Competition.


April Screen Capture Winner


Ben Garlick of Queensland, Australia, has won a refund of the full purchase price of his award-winning Dragonfly system, as well as a Dragonfly sun cover and carrying case, by submitting the winning shot for April’s Screen Capture Competition.

His eye catching screen shot captured a bale of turtles swimming beneath his boat in a large, shallow estuary of water off the east coast of Australia.

Dragonfly’s CHIRP DownVison™ sonar technology was able to capture a clear shot of the turtles shortly before they ventured to the surface of the water to greet Ben and his boat! Ben won the competition by completing an online form found on Raymarine’s website www.raymarine.eu/dragonfly
