On the 4th October, the first tournament of the National Saltwater Kayak Fishing Club was held in Peniche, Portugal.  A total of 52 fishermen participated!

This event was organized by the Forum Kayakfishing http://kayakfishing.forumeiros.com and with the support of the Municipality of Peniche.  A special permit for the location was required and it brought us together for the competition. It was quite a sight to see all the colorful kayaks decorating the beach of Broken. They attracted a lot of  attention from curious onlookers. Two companies were represented; Watertech and SIPRE.

There were several types of kayaks with each one accessorized by their owners, all different.  The start was given at 9:00 with everyone returning at 14.00. It was quite a spectacle to watch dozens of kayaks leaving the beach heading for the coast of Chat. The fireman of Peniche provided on water safety, and fortunately their services weren’t needed.  After the competition there was the well-deserved lunch that included fish caught during the tournament. Lunch was followed by distribution of prizes and there was a raffle among all participants. The prizes and raffle items were supplied by the sponsors.

1º Encontro Nacional de Mar Kayakfishing

No passado dia 4 de Outubro, realizou-se em Peniche o 1º Encontro Nacional de Kayakfishing de Mar, com a participação de 52 pescadores! Este encontro, que foi organizado pelo Fórum Kayakfishing, com o apoio da Câmara Municipal de Peniche e com uma autorização especial da Capitania local, reuniu as vertentes convívio e competição. A concentração decorou a praia do Quebrado, com o colorido dos caiaques e a presença dos acompanhantes e muitos curiosos, além da exposição de caiaques de dois representantes, a Watertech e a Sipre.

Apareceram vários tipos de embarcações, com a bricolage necessária para “personalizar” e “funcionalizar” à medida de cada um, com uma auto-construção de luxo a dar nas vistas…

A partida foi dada às 9h00, com regresso marcado às 14h00; foi um verdadeiro espectáculo assistir às dezenas de kayaks que ordeiramente abandonavam a margem, e se dirigiam para a costa da Papoa.

O semi-rígido dos Bombeiros de Peniche fez a segurança no mar, e felizmente não teve, como se esperava, motivo para intervir…

No final da prova, houve o merecido almoço, seguido pela distribuição de prémios, e sorteio, entre todos os participantes, dos brindes oferecidos pelos patrocinador es.
