Guy Harvey Outpost Team Joins Blue Water Babes to Fish for a Cure
Catch fish, eat great food, sip cocktails and maybe win prizes for a worthy cause in the Bluewater Babes Fish for a Cure Tournament Oct. 2-3 out of Sailfish Marina on Singer Island in Palm Beach County.
The tournament awards prizes for weighing the heaviest pelagics (kingfish, dolphin and wahoo); heaviest single meat fish (snapper, grouper, cobia or blackfin tuna); and releasing billfish (blue marlin, white marlin and sailfish).
Only women may be anglers, but male captains and crew are allowed.
Fish for a Cure, founded in 2009, is Palm Beach County’s first all-female contest dedicated to raising money for local breast and ovarian cancer patients who are in financial need. Besides fishing, the event includes cocktail and costume contests and a boat-decorating contest. A captains’ meeting and kickoff party will be held Oct. 2, followed by fishing and the final awards ceremony Oct. 3.
Guy Harvey Outpost’s captain Cliff Jensen and his team are sponsoring a Loggerhead Marina boat for the tournament. Guy Harvey Outpost has also donated a prize of a three-night stay at Old Bahama Bay Resort & Yacht Harbor on West End, Grand Bahama Island, along with dockage.
