Congratulations to Dave Burkitt and his partner Amy Cort who have won a competition to win a short break at the Star Castle on St. Mary's and a special wine-tasting at Holy Vale Winery. Dave's name was chosen at random from more than 2,000 entrants who entered the Geographical Magazine competition which ran in the September issue alongside an extensive article about lobster fishing and Scilly's vineyards.

Dave worked for the British Antarctic Survey for almost 30 years. Most recently both Dave and Amy worked for cruise ships going to the Antarctic and the Arctic. They both retired in 2012.

Scilly has been on their list of "must see" places ever since hearing about it from several friends who live close to them in Lincolnshire. They are very much looking forward to visiting "this beautiful and enchanting place" next year.

Our thanks to the Star Castle and Geographical Magazine for hosting the competition and prize!
