New tournament in Quepos to crown Best Fisherwoman Worldwide

February 22, 2019

For the first time in Costa Rica, women who love sport fishing will go to sea in a world-class event to compete for the title of Best International Fisherwoman during the Billfish Championship. Registration for the tournament took place today, and competition will take place Friday and Saturday at Marina Pez Vela in Quepos, on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast.

On Saturday, Feb. 23, the Marina will award a trophy for the team winner and for each of its participants in each category, which include sailfish, tuna and dorado.

Teams will compete for cash prizes as well.

“After all the sailfish releases, a verification is made by means of videos… tuna and dorado species will be weighed by the officials of the Marina Pez Vela,” said Jeff Duchesneau, general manager of Marina Pez Vela. “The fisherwoman who gets more points at the end of the two fishing days will be crowned as the best in the world.”

The Marina expects approximately 30 to 40 teams in the tournament, with fisherwomen from Costa Rica, the United States, Panama, Mexico, Angola and Canada. Teams have at least two members, with a maximum of five.

In addition to the main tournament, Marina Pez Vela will have other activities on Feb. 22 and 23, such as a party to start the event, activities on the docks on the second day and a white party for the award.

The Pescadora Billfish Championship is sponsored by Costa Rica Vacations, Costa del Mar, Hatteras, Fishing Tease.com, Tournament Yacht Sales, Tackle Shop Quepos, Knot Working Charters, Gray Taxidermy, Premium Marine, Squid Nation, Fishing Vacations, and others.
