We have great new sponsors for the event with fantastic prizes coming from Penn, Shakespeare, and Abu Garcia. These brands will help make a fantastic prize table along with the big cash prizes. There will be a few changes this year on the prize categories but all beneficial to the competing angler - watch this space.

We are hoping all the harbour works are completed by the start of the event and we can operate again from A-Berth.

Also with the Corona Virus restrictions being lifted we hope to see our European Friends again.

We have to book the boats well in advance and places are limited.

So please can you get your entry forms in early to avoid disappointment.
