READERS are being given the chance to win a six-day sailing trip for two around the Caribbean with Windjammer Barefoot Cruises.

Guild Film Distributors and the Independent are joining forces to offer this cruise to mark the national release of 1492 - Conquest of Paradise. The film, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Gerard Depardieu and Sigourney Weaver, is a spectacular biopic of Christopher Columbus, marking the quincentennial of his landing in the Americas.

The competition winner and guest will fly with Getaway America to the Caribbean, where they will board a cruise ship, one of the Windjammer Barefoot Cruise fleet of traditional tall ships.

Guild Film Distributors are also offering 10 suede 1492 - Conquest of Paradise movie jackets, 15 soundtracks and 15 books based on the movie as runners-up prizes.

To enter, just answer the following question:

Name any one of the three ships sailed by Columbus in 1492.

Answers should be printed on a postcard, with the sender's name and address, and sent to: 1492 Paradise Contest, Suite 20, Smug Oak Business Centre, Lye Lane, Bricket Wood, Herts AL2 3LT. Answers should arrive by 9 November. One entry per person.
