The Sixteenth Two Ocean’s Marlin Tournament – Pirate Evening

The last fishing day of the competition began with lines-in at 08h00. Lines-up would be called depending on weather conditions and ended up being at 16h00 making it a worthwhile day out at sea. It was an exciting day with quite a number of strikes but only on release by Bayswater and we shall report more about that in a later post. Today’s post is going to be all about the Pirate Party. Watch this space for two more Anglers’ Stories and for the final Prize Giving Report.

We arrived this evening to a creatively decorated clubhouse. I believe all credit is due to the Bar Ladies for this.

Dinner this evening was braaied chicken and vegetables. Well done to Marinda and her team for their excellent catering.

The Bar Ladies also dressed up and made sure all the pirates got their rum and whiskey!

There were some awesome pirates from the various ‘ships’ visiting Struisbaai this week!

One tried to kidnap me!

Of course, there were the straf dops to be dealt out and today Amazing Grace 2 incorrectly used a call sign at sea, Gwaza didn’t call in at the harbour, Bayswater flew their marlin flag too high and Catitude did something that I missed.

Take it like a man!
It’s all in good fun
Uh oh – not the snuff!
Put your nose just there
Team Catitude downing a dop
