Offshore World Championship qualifying round in Fujairah


Under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Al Sharqi, Crown Prince of Fujairah, and after the enormous success and positive feedback of the 2015 Fujairah Offshore Fishing Tournament which was an IGFA Offshore World Championship qualifying event, Fujairah International Marine Club is delighted to announce the 2016 Fujairah Offshore Fishing Tournament – Offshore World Championship qualifying round on 2nd to 5th November 2016.


IGFA is a non-profit organization committed to the conservation of fishing. The main objective of this event to provide a platform for competitive world class fishing opportunities to encourage sportsmanship across the UAE, encourage youth in sport fishing and ocean ecology while rewarding charity institutions with fish caught during the tournament. We are aiming to have 20-30 fishing boats participate in the event.


The Fujairah Offshore Fishing Tournament is a three-day fishing event and a World Championship Qualifying Event. Top Team honours goes to the crew that tallies the most points during the tournament. The award provides prizes for first, second and third place finishers. The tournament will also award a prize to the team that catches the largest Tuna, largest Dorado and largest Kingfish (all by weight) and any other awards it deems necessary during the event.


In an effort to engage the youth to fishing sportsmanship, the tournament will engage in an independent observer for each boat each day. Teams must NOT leave the marina until they have been allocated their observer each morning, where after they will line up in the bay directly in front of the Yacht Club for a Bimini start. In an effort to add an element of social responsibility, all fish will immediately, after weigh-in and pictures, be placed on ice and donated to charity
