Capping off an incredibly successful week of activity at the Monaco Yacht Show, DOCKWALK.com is proud to announce the winners of the iPhone 3G competition.
The contest, which began in August, highlights the social interactivity of the DOCKWALK.com community, and reveals the competitive spirit that exists within so many captains and crew.
DOCKWALK.com members have competed for weeks to earn stars on the website by finding friends, adding photos, writing blogs and setting their itineraries from locations around the globe. Each new activity earned stars and 1/2 stars, which are displayed along with the member profiles throughout the site.
The stars indicate active participation on DOCKWALK.com, whose registered members now exceed 3,500 captains and crew.
Winners were selected based on the number of friends they gained during the competition by using the "find friends" feature on their My Dockwalk page. Other winners were randomly selected according to geographic region.
