Thursday 17 February 2022 was the last fishing day of the tournament. It was the anglers’ last chance to land that coveted catch – a marlin of any species or size would do!
Lines in was called at 08h00 and we on the shore listened excitedly as the reports of hook-ups came in. There were a few. Some were makos and bronzies and some were marlin hooked and lost. Only one, the last one of the day and the last one of the competition came in and it was Bayswater that finally won the day!
Lines-up was called at 16h00 and off I went to get some more pictures of the magnificent boats that took part in this years’ tournament.
Friday, 18 February 2022 – Prize Giving
Thanks to the generous sponsors there were great prizes and every boat was awarded something.
Each year TOMT has a flag which is auctioned to raise funds for the next tournament. This year last year’s flag, as well as the 2022 flag, were auctioned.
After this, the prizes were presented. I have posted photographs below and hope I have the team names right.
There are just too many sponsors to individually name here but they are listed on the banner at the top of each of the blog posts. Please support them. They have donated generously and without their support, a tournament like this would not be the same.
After the proceedings, Gareth Beaumont presented a special prize to Derek Kaplan who was quite blown away with surprise.
Once again we enjoyed an awesome meal to celebrate the end of TOMT.
What a great tournament this was. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again next year. Tight lines till then, anglers.
PS – Watch this space for Bayswater’s Story – to be published soon.
