The club held their Vernon Everitt Boat Match League Presentation Evening on Friday evening the 27th September. The league was formed by club member and charter boat skipper Vernon Everitt over 10 years ago and has been fished in its current format for six years. It is fished over six matches on a league basis consisting of three matches on two Lymington charter boats, "Voyager" skippered by Kevin Duell and "Last Laugh" skippered by John Skeggs and three matches out of Poole on "Mistress Linda" skippered by Phillip Higgins and "Boney M" skippered by Louis Medley.
Ed Taylor welcomed everyone and started by thanking the sponsors of the league, Loni's Angling for their continued support and excellent bait packs, and Karl Bates for his contribution, Robin Lane for organising all the matches etc, Colin Saunders who again carried out scorers duty, a special thank-you to Richard and Allison Day who collate all results and score sheets and provide up to date reports after each match and all who have helped this year.
The league continues to have good support and brings publicity to the club, which this year has included several anglers who are part of the England team. A feature writer from Saltwater Boat Angler magazine came along to one match and has written an article for October's magazine.
36 different species and 2755 fish have been caught this year with only a small number being retained for the table.

The Prizes were awarded by Vernon Everitt.
