Team Papua New Guinea Takes Lead In Offshore World Championship 2015

Offshore-World-Championship-Costa_ricaQCOSTARICA – The Offshore World Championship is off to an amazing start at Marina Pez Vela, with some of the highest results in tournament history. Over 800 Sailfish were caught and released today off the waters of Quepos.

67 teams, comprised of 320 anglers from 27 countries around the globe are all competing for the World Champion Title this week in Quepos, Costa Rica.

The first day winner was a team from Papua New Guinea, who caught and released 38 sailfish at the time of this writing.    The team representing the Quepos Billfish Cup had 11 sailfish catch and releases and the lone tico angler, Alberto Laurencich, who is actually fishing for a team from Hawaii, caught and released 4 sailfish today.

All catch and releases videos will be verified overnight by the  Offshore World Championship Organizers.    Three more days of competitive fishing are on tap as the tournament continues through Thursday, April 16th.

This is the third year in a row that Costa Rica has been selected home of the Offshore World Championship, thanks to the lobbying efforts of ICT and Marina Pez Vela.

Each year, the tournament brings over $2M of direct benefit to the community of Quepos and the tournament has been a catalyst for many of the infrastructure improvements taking place in the city of Quepos.
