SCOTT John and partner Shanna Battersby will soon set sail on their first overseas trip, after winning the 12-day cruise competition, courtesy of Harvey World Travel.

For months the entries poured in, but for Scott a caring mum and a bit of luck would prove just the ticket.

Scott's mum Lorraine filled out endless entry forms on behalf of her sons, and received the call on Friday night telling her Scott had won.

"I just love my boys!" she cried excitedly upon hearing the news.

Scott and Shanna thanked Lorraine, the Border Post and Harvey World Travel.

"Lorraine wanted some time away for us," Shanna said.

Both are looking forward to the trip.

"It should be something a bit different," Scott said.
