Prize-Winners and Fish at the Fujairah Fishing Competition 2010

Family Fun Day
It was a productive day at Fujairah’s Fishing Competition yesterday (26 November 2010).

Addressing contestants and their supporters at the prize giving ceremony Major Ahmed Ebraheim Alblooshi said, “This is primarily a family fun day out which is more important than who wins the competition.”

The water conditions were calm and contestants returned contented after a great day on the Fujairah seas. Two boats did not return at the appointed time—obviously they were enjoying things so much that they gave the weigh-in and award ceremony a miss.

Here are the winners according to the various categories, as given by the FIMC Organizing Committee:

Heaviest Fish
1st Chris Brand
2nd Andrew Ross
3rd John Fish

Longest Fish
1st Loland Rossler
2nd Erich Koning
3rd Arkady

Women’s Competition
1st Leyla
2nd Blanka Rossler
3rd Zhann Muchnik

Congratulations to the prize winners and all participants.

Congratulations also to Major Ahmed and his well-drilled team for their good planning, efficient administrative and their ongoing commitment to providing marine recreational events for Fujairah residents and visitors from other emirates and countries.

Major Ahmed told people present that this was the first fishing competition of the season and that there were two more fishing competition days to come. Dates and details will be announced soon.
