A first down this way for a comp with that kind of set-up and that much prize money. 8)

With only 1 charter boat working out of Ballycotton it will interesting to see where the other boats will come from.
Maybe the big prize money will get the Cork harbour boats to travel east.

Don't forget to factor in the weather, 4 days of calm seas off the south coast :shock:


Best of luck to the organisers.
Boat species '15 (31) Shore species (21) Total species 40 Specimen: (B) Bluemouth .92kg,(B) Spotted ray 6lb,(S) Painted ray 12.4lb
Boat species '16 (30) Shore species (17) Total species 36
Boat species '17 (35) Shore species (22) Total species 37 Specimen: (B) Bluemouth, (S) Flounder

Sounds great

I am told that they do not expect to fill this entry with Irish Anglers and expect entry from teams from abroad.
It will make for some logistical spectacle - 20 charter boats leaving and returning to Ballycotton each day (I am assuming 6 anglers per boat).
