A portion of all proceeds will be donated to an amazing organization called the Seeds of Hope. They work in Costa Rica on the national and local level to combat sexual exploitation, drugs, violence and trafficking of minors.
“We want to attract woman from all parts of the world who are lovers of this activity, either with us without the experience of the tournament,” said Samantha Mumford Pescadora.
The event will start on February 21nd with the registration process during the afternoon and continue with the fishing sessions on the 22nd and 23rd, to conclude on February 23rd with the big award, a trophy for the team winner and for each of the participants in each category.
Within the awards, the teams compete for cash prizes as well.
“After all the billfish releases, a verification is made by means of videos and likewise, the tuna and dorado species will be weighed in the official Roman Navy of the Pez Vela, to carry the count of points. The fisherwoman who gets more points at the end of the two fishing days will be crowned as the best in the world,” said Jeff Duchesneau, general manager of Marina Pez Vela.
Currently, the competition has teams of fisherwomen from Costa Rica, the United States, Panama, Mexico, Angola and Canada, although it is expected that open registration will include around 30 or 40 teams to the tournament.
In order to participate, interested women must gather a team of two to five members. Registrations can be made online on the event website: www.ThePescadora.com
