tasfish.com St Helens Charity Grandslam raises $1660
The St Helens Charity Grandslam was run and won Saturday 29 January at the St Helens Regatta. Bigger and better than ever it raised $1660 for a charity that will be announced shortly. It will be announced here.
This amount was only possible due to the support of www.tasfish.com, Tamar Marine, Coastal Marine and the Rotary Club of St Helens. Their generosity is priceless and we sincerely thank them.
Perfect weather with a light breeze greeted the start at 8 a.m. and with the tide just starting to run out many used the chance to chase a bream the first target of three target species to make up the Grand Slam trio. The other two fish were trevally and Australian salmon.
33 teams competed and the top 14 teams all caught their Grand Slam with points award at one point per legal centimetre. After these there is a bonus of 10 points per extra species. It is a great system that seems to really work well.
