Unfortunately a number of boats declined to support the club on the day and, very dissapointingly, went fishing for other species instead. In consequence, only 18 anglers signed on for the competition of which 11 weighed in with not all of those being able to achieve the bag limit of 2 fish imposed in the interests of conservation..
Mark Jacobs had a 2 fish bag of 3 lbs 11 ozs to take the first prize of £150 sponsored by Pascal Atkey of Cowes (£100) plus BAC. His single fish of 2 lbs 3 1/2 ozs also took the £50 prize for the heaviest fish.
Ryan Evemy's 2 fish bag of 3 lbs 1 oz took the second prize of £100 jointly sponsored by BAC members Dave Gawn, Peter Knight & Ross Staplehurst.
Alan Deeming's 2 fish bag of 2 lbs 11 ozs took the third place prize of £50 sponsored by BAC.
All competitors that weighed in were able to select a table prize.donated by Bembridge Boat Storage or BAC president Bob Cowley.
