Badge 2


Large Boat Competitions and Results.

Organised by Alec Harmer

Sunday 27th May.

On a glorious Bank Holiday Sunday, with temperatures well into the twenties and a calm sea state, eight club members fished their may competition off the Needles, aboard "private Venture" skippered by Art savage. Three different marks were explored during the competition, all producing a mixed bag of species which included black bream, conger eel, dogfish, pouting, thornback ray, scad and smoothhound.
Club president Derek Smith had a near specmen pouting; only just missing out on the useful points by just over half an ounce. Other notable fish were a black bream of 2lb 9.6oz and a near specimen scad of 1lb 6.2oz, both caught by Jane Hopkins. Roland Blomfield was rewarded with a very nice lobster.
1st Malcolm Gerrish 71pts, 2nd Arran Harmer 67pts, 3rd Brian Dawkins 61pts (more fish), 4th Jane Hopkins 61pts, 5th Alec Harmer 47pts, 6th Roland Blomfield 38pts, 7th Derek Smith 34pts,
8th Anton Emblen 24pts.
Sunday 29th April.
Competion was cancelled due to the weather.
