This years event is also sponsored by Garmin, Palm Equipment, Reuben Heaton and Trokar Hooks, Navionics, iCOM and Seapower UK (Costa)

Who can enter?

The Tournament is open to all who fish from a kayak, regardless of manufacturer, all kayaks must be self propelled unless the kayak fisherperson has a disability which does not allow this, please include a note with your entry form should this be the case.

All competitors must be over the age of 18 on the day of the tournament or accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

Please read the rules as there are some very important changes to previous years.

Entry forms are now available via this link. No need to send them to us this year.
