If you have ever visited the annual Southampton Boat Show you may have seen our Topsail advertisements in the toilets. 

There are four different versions, each featuring a nautical joke and cartoon.

This year we are continuing our humorous ads, except…we are inviting you to submit your favourite nautical joke. You could win an Amazon voucher and be selected to appear in our next advert at the Show.

Four winning jokes will be chosen by Topsail MD Rob Stevens on 1st August 2016. If your joke is picked you will win a £50 Amazon gift card and a ticket to the boat show to see the final, printed version on display!

How to Enter

To enter the competition all you have to do is submit a family-friendly, nautical joke. The joke must not have been used before (we can provide a list of previous jokes if requested) and will need to be able to be depicted by a cartoon. The joke will appear on an A4 poster therefore the joke cannot be too long please, we don’t want to be causing queues!

All entries are to be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the subject header Joke Entry, along with your name and address.

The four winners will be announced during August and the final designs will appear on our Facebook page after the boat show ends.

Got a creative friend, pass this on and share. Good luck!
