Report

The 39th Small Boat Festival was held in Salcombe last weekend when 76 competitors in 29 boats from all parts of the South of England, including many entries from South Wales. The favourable weather ensured a larger entry than last year and the boats on Saturday, were able to travel to the outer area and the ray pits, it was no surprise therefore that some good quality rays were weighed in and these featured in the prizes. On Sunday as a precaution of the forecasted stronger winds the boats were restricted to the Zone 2, nevertheless, as always this did not deter the anglers or the fish and again some very good specimens were brought to the scales. Alex Parker chairman of the AT Wyvern Region thanked the generous sponsor, Chris Mills, himself a competitor for many years, who presented the trophies and prizes valued over £2500. He also thanked all the other sponsors who had helped complete the prize table. The prize giving was hosted by the Island Street Bar and Grill to whom the organising committee are very grateful. Next year will be the 40th year of the Festival and the date will be announced as soon as available. A donation will be made from the proceeds will be made to the Salcombe RNLI as has been the custom since the Festival was started 39 years ago and any funds raised will go towards the work of the Angling Trust Wyvern Region on behalf of all Sea Anglers.,
