Excitement Building for
53rd Annual Buccaneer Cup
January 21 – 23, 2016
Enter Now and Save!
The Buccaneer Cup Sailfish Release Tournament is a Florida tradition, one of the oldest continuously run billfish tournaments in the world! This year marks the 53rd consecutive time it has been held in the Palm Beach area and it is generating more buzz among the tournament community than at any time in recent memory!
Why? Because the purse is larger with last year’s top boat winning over $92,000 in cash prizes and there’s very a good chance the purse will be larger this time. Because the tournament rules are structured to encourage teams to do what they do best, catch and release as many billfish as they possibly can. And because all the proceeds are donated to the Recreational Fishing Alliance—the political action organization that has worked tirelessly to protect pelagic fish stocks while also protecting your right to fish. In 2015 the Buc donated $50,000 to the RFA and with interest and early entries running ahead of last year the donation should be greater!
This year MTU and its distributors Johnson & Towers and Florida Detroit Diesel Allison have partnered to sponsor the gala Awards Dinner and posh seafood buffet at the Sailfish Club of Florida. Viking Yachts partnered with their leading broker HMY Yacht Sales to sponsor the Captains Meeting Party at the Buccaneer Marina and Restaurant. Our Platinum Sponsors include Yamaha Marine, Jarrett Bay Boat Works and Ocean Properties, owners of Jupiter Beach Spa and Resort, our preferred residence for teams and their families during the tournament. Gold Sponsors include Salt Life Optics/Bimini Bay Outfitters, American Custom Yachts, Contender Boats and Release Marine. The Supporting Sponsor ranks are filled by Interlux Yacht Paint, Seakeeper, Cummins Power Systems, Viking Service Center (Riviera Beach, FL), Palm Beach Towers, AFW/Hi-Seas, Bahama Boats, Rybovich Marine, O. Mustad, Sailfish Marina and others yet to be announced.
Your entry fee puts you in the running for the $10,000 cash payout plus tickets to the captain’s party and awards dinner and you can pick between numerous Calcutta extra entry categories or belly up with the big boys and enter across the board. Captains will be vying for the coveted InTheBite Top Captain loving cup.
