Melia Cuba announces V Fishing Tournament in Cayo Guillermo
The next Jardines del Rey Big Game Trolling tournament is due to take place in Cuba's pristine northern key of Cayo Guillermo. For this year's fifth edition the event will take place from 16th to 22nd October and participants will battle it out in the Tag and Release modality.
All fishing professionals and amateurs have now been officially invited to participate in the fifth edition of Jardines del Rey Big Game Trolling, which will be taking place in Cayo Guillermo from 16th to 22nd October 2014.
Organised and sponsored by Melia Hotels International Cuba and Marina Marlin Internacional, this event, exclusively held in the pristine Jardines del Rey archipelago, will once again help show off the region's huge potential to further develop sport fishing.
The tournament will be conducted adhering to the rules of the International Game Fishing Association, and the modality will be tag and release. Participants will be judged on three photographs that will be used to validate catches that will then be shown to the jury.
The fishing competition will be carried out over three whole days with half a day devoted to the competition itself. Participating groups should be made up of up to four members and an additional fisherman. They will battle it out for prizes in the categories of: first catch, the biggest Dorado and the first three places, which will be decided according to the points accumulated.
Participants can make the tournament part of a leisure Cuba holiday where they will be accommodated by Melia across their selection of four and five-star hotels in the region: Melia Cayo Guillermo, Sol Cayo Guillermo, Melia Cayo Coco, Sol Cayo Coco and Tryp Cayo Coco.
Registration fees are 350.00 CUC per team (of up to four fishermen) and the rental of a boat for three full days and one half-day of fishing is 1800.00 CUC.
