Crabbing Competition

Crabbing Competition

Crabbing Competition - Sunday 4th August 

A firm favourite and hotly contested!!   Registration will be at the Berthing Office anytime before 9am when there'll be a briefing to outline the Rules before crab catching begins.   Crabs can be officially counted anytime up to 10am when the Finishing Hooter will sound.   Crabs will be returned very carefully by staff members into the Harbour.

There are age specific categories for the greatest number of crabs, and prizes for the largest crab, youngest crabber etc (please put tiny crabs back in the water - there is no prize for the smallest crab).  There's a separate category for adults, but children are not allowed to help the grown ups!

Hookless crabbing lines, buckets and free bait are available from the Berthing Office - nets are not allowed to be used in the Competition.    

A Prizegiving will be held at about 1030 (or when counting has finished).
