Bermuda billfish tourney raises money for marine scholarships

Team El Cazador took home the top prize in this year’s Bermuda Billfish Release.

Team El Cazador took home the top prize in this year’s Bermuda Billfish Release Cup — a charity event that provides funding for the Bermuda Sloop Foundation’s Adam Goodwin Marine Mentor Scholarship fund.

This year’s tournament launched two new traditions — a golf tournament and a chance to sail on the Spirit of Bermuda from Hamilton Princess Marina to the Royal Naval Dockyard to attend the final registration at the Bermuda Fun Golf Club.

Organizers said the BBRC is a tune-up for the Triple Crown Championship that allows passing the rod and angler assistance, if needed, giving access to junior and less experienced anglers while raising money for the foundation.

Team El Cazador caught a 101-pound yellowfin to win the game-fish division, winning a total of $8,800 and an invitation to the Offshore World Championship. El Cazador also won the Garmin $5,000 bonus for having fixed-mounted Garmin electronics.
