Sailfish Open tournament coming to Palm Beach County

The Palm Beach County Sports Commission is teaming up with the World Fishing Tour to bring the Sailfish Open to Palm Beach County Feb. 1-3.

The event, which was previously held at Hawk’s Cay in Duck Key, is an official leg of the Sailfish Pro Series, which also has tournaments in the Keys and Miami.

This will be the fourth year for the tournament, and it’s slated to attract a fleet of 30 to 40 sportfishing teams of seven to eight people competing for cash prizes of $25,000 per division and a custom-made crystal trophy.

Last year’s tournament included $250,000 in prize money.

 The three-day tournament, which is nationally televised on NBC, opens Feb. 1 with registration from 1-4 p.m. and a kickoff party from 6 to 9 p.m.

Competition goes from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 2, with a dock party at 6 p.m.

The competition concludes Feb. 3 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and an awards banquet will wrap up the event from 6 to 10 that evening.

 The Sailfish Open will use various marinas throughout the county, including the Sailfish Marina and Cannonsport Marina on Singer Island.

 “Palm Beach has a long and illustrious history with the sport of sailfishing and that makes it an ideal location for this year’s Sailfish Open,” World Fishing Tour chairman Christopher King said.
