With just over four weeks to go until this year’s European Open Beach Championship the event looks set once again to confirm its status as the premier beach angling competition in the UK.
Interest from the continent has reached new heights with record numbers of competitors from over 10 different countries taking part. They will all be aiming to emulate last year’s winner Dave Richardson from Suffolk who walked away with a large share of the £25,000 prize fund and the crown of European Champion.
General Rule Change
Due to recent reports of large numbers of Rays Bream being washed on shore along the East coast EY Events have amended the general rules to this years European Open Beach Championship. They have deemed that no Rays Bream will be permitted to be weighed in as part of the competition.
If competitors are unsure of what species are permitted they should visit the competition website at www.eyevents.co.uk/events/open
Please be aware that due to the extremely high tides towards the end of the match competitors should take extra care and attention when planning a suitable exit off the beach.
Tickets are still available for the competition and can be purchased at www.eyevents.co.uk/events/open or by cheque/postal order to;
EY Events, Room JG53B, County Hall, Beverley, HU17 9BA.
