The teams had an awesome day today. Lots of fish were measured and released and the weather out there was amazing. To be able to go out three days in a row is wonderful but really exhausting for our intrepid anglers.
The radio communications went well with Andrew Perrins, from England, handling the proceedings on 82 Delta, Earl and Trevor, of course, were here in Struisbaai and Agulhas to pick up any gaps that might occur. There was a hiccup when one of the boats lost communication but luckily they were able to communicate with a tanker in the area who reported having seen a fishing boat on the 12-mile bank. He was not in distress but his radio had malfunctioned so he could not check-in for a while.
Here are some of the highlights of the day

Because of poor weather and sea conditions, today has been declared a rest day. It is uncertain whether the teams will fish tomorrow and therefore I cannot post the latest results until this decision has been made. The final results are always kept secret until the closing function.
Should they be announced after the weather call I will do a brief post to let you all know. Otherwise, the next report will be after the closing function.
