Dear Billfish Classic competitors,
Please be aware that there has been another slight amendment to the 2013 Billfish Classic rules. Attached below is an updated version of the rules which you will need to familiarise yourself with prior to the competition and briefing night.
Additionally, there was an error in the previous post regarding the briefing night (my apologies). The briefing night will be held at the DTBC on Thursday 24 October 2013, commencing at 6:00pm sharp. Please ensure you are aware of this change.
Also attached below is a map outlining the Billfish classic fishing zones as well as an historical record of where billfish have been caught during the Billfish Classic. Both of these are very valuable maps and you should download a copy for your reference.
