The Grand Bahama Shipyard announced plans for its second annual fishing tournament on March 10 at the Grand Bahama Yacht Club.
Ed Pavey, director of technical planning, said funds raised this year will benefit two schools – the Freetown and High Rock Primary Schools – in East Grand Bahama.
He said the shipyard is hoping to raise some $40,000, tripling funds raised at last year’s tournament.
The tournament will get underway at 6am with registration at Dock B. Boaters will leave the marina at 7am, and should return no later than 5pm for weigh-in.
First Place overall will get $1,000, second place $600 and third place $400. With the balance of prize money going for largest aggregate catch (combined weight of all qualifying fish) and individual catches.
