Vilankulos Sailfish Competition 2017

And it’s time for the Vilankulos Sailfish Competition 2017, in May this year!

And again, the guys at Big Blue and Vila Do Paraiso will be hosting the Big Blue Vilankulo Sailfish Competition between the 22 and 26 May 2017.

The annual tournament is a great get together for 5 days of great sailfishing fun. May is a great month to be targeting sailfish in the Vilankulos waters. Besides the Vilankulo Sailfish Prize, the competition also gives points and prizes for Marlin and game fish.

If you want to charter a local boat and crew let us know, but private boats are also welcome, and can be provided with local knowledge, tips on areas, techniques, rigging and local skippers if needed. Secure Mooring´s will be available in front of Big Blue.
