[ended] June Giveaway - Ocean Planet Energy

At Cruisers Forum we are pleased to offer our members a Monthly Vendor Giveaway Prize, which we hope will help our members learn about the sponsors who support our community. Our goal is to create ways for our members to engage with our sponsors, earning a chance to win a prize donated by the sponsor. We feel this will provide the sponsor a unique opportunity to embrace our laser focused audience and provide our amazing members an easy and free way to win some gear!

A special thanks to Ocean Planet Energy for providing the prize for our June Giveaway, which will be a FREE Solbian SL40Q-JB or SL40L-JB solar panel (depending on what best fits for the winner), value $429; also a Genasun GVB-8-12Pb solar controller with the panel, value $125 with a total value of $554 for the lucky winner. PLUS a 10% discount for all entrants who don't win!


Sponsor Information:
Bruce Schwab is a lifelong marine services professional and two-time solo circumnavigator.


As an adolescent he spent two years cruising with his father and brothers. Afterwards, settling in Northern California he led the Rigging Shop at Svendsens Marine from 1981 to 2000. During this time he restored his 1930 30sq Meter “Rumbleseat” (now based in Tortola as “Diva”).

After winning many crewed, double-handed, and solo sailing races, including the 1996 Singlehanded Transpac aboard Rumbleseat, he retired from Svendsens to oversee the design & building of the all-American Open 60 OceanPlanet. After completing his first circumnavigation in the 2002/2003 Around Alone Race, he came to Portland, Maine to refit OceanPlanet for the 2004/2005 Vendee Globe Race (solo, nonstop, around the world). On February 25, 2005, Bruce became the first American in history to officially finish the Vendee Globe, and currently holds the American solo circumnavigation record of 109 days and 20 hours.

Since then he has devoted himself to providing clients anywhere in the world with the best marine energy storage and charging systems. Now living in the mid-coast town of Woolwich, Maine, Bruce is an avid bicycle racer and regularly plays his collection of acoustic guitars.


To enter, simply do the following:
  1. Visit the site Ocean Planet Energy
  2. Select the products you would add to your wishlist which you would consider purchasing with your 10% discount if you don't win!
  3. Copy the URLs (the web address at top of your browser).

That's all you have to do, so don't forget the links!

Re: June Giveaway - Ocean Planet Energy

I'm interested in upgrading to an MMPT controller.

Great offer 'cause I definitely have the real estate for more solar and the desire for more power. Thanks for the offer. I hope I win!

Re: June Giveaway - Ocean Planet Energy

I'm looking at probably a battery monitor

Or maybe even a SL80L panel.

And as always, thanks for the monthly chance!

A battery monitor would be nice as well as a flexible panel or two.
