2018 MARINA PEZ VELA OPEN!
The 2nd & final day of the MPV Open took place yesterday and the all girls team Sandra, Tania, Ivania & Nuria, the ‘Ladies of Marina Pez Vela’ joined us aboard GOOD DAY.
Capt Manuel Gabuardi did an excellent job to find the fish raising 1 Blue Marlin & 5 Sailfish. We were unlucky on the hookups but the girls did great to release 1 Sailfish and also caught a Tuna.
This tournament was super close from start to finish and any one of the 19 teams were in with a chance of winning and 4 teams constantly traded place at the top of the leaderboard with just 1 Sailfish (200 points) separating them at the end of the tournament.
After 2 tournament days the fish tally was:
89 Sailfish released
8 Blue Marlin released
18 Yellow Fin Tuna weighed
10 Dorado weighed
There were many more Tuna & Dorado caught but teams only weighed their heaviest each day.
1. Miss Judy - 1 Blue Marlin & 9 Sailfish
2. Double Nickle - 2 Blue Marlin, 6 Sailfish
3. Billfish - 1 Marlin & 8 Sailfish
Congrats to all for another fantastic event & now for the small matter of 51 teams from 30 countries when the 2018 Offshore World Championships starts tomorrow!
