    WHITBY’S spring angling festival gets under way on Saturday (14 April) and finishing on the 29th april with competitors trying for the £1,000 jackpot.

    Whitby Charter Skippers’ Association, which is organising the 16-day event, is delighted to welcome on board new sponsors The Station Inn in Whitby and MC Electricals - both of which are offering £500 towards the first prize.

    Paul Kilpatrick, chairman of the charter skippers, said: “Last year saw some excellent catches of fish during the festival so once again competition should be fierce.

    “Anglers come from all over the country chasing the big prize.”

    As well as the £1,000 top prize, anglers can also compete for the £100 in daily prizes, making £2,600 in cash in prize money on offer.

    The association is also pleased to announce a new sponsor - the Co-operative - the main cash sponsor for the grand summer festival when a jackpot of £5,000 will be paid out to the angler with the biggest fish This commences on Saturday 16 June.

    The charter skippers offers a “massive thank you” to all present and new sponsors.

    Hi Martin,

    I have some free advertising space on my Real Whitby site. First 50 advertisers are free. If the festival sponsors want to write me somewhere between 150 and 400 words about their business and add at least 3 photographs ill add them to my site free of charge Ill also add them onto the wcsa site at the same time. Please send to realwhitby@gmail.com if they send less than 150 words or not enough pics I wont publish. Cant say fairer than that.

    Re: Whitby Angling Festival - Local Sponsors

    Hi Mike, Ive made an offer to all festival sponsors for them to have free advertising on my Real Whitby Site (Currently average 12,000 unique users a month, 50,000 page hits and growing every month). Also I will add them to a sponsors page on http://www.whitbyseaanglers.co.uk.

    All I ask is they provide me with the wording and some pictures. Minimum of 150 words.

    I will be charging for advertising on Real Whitby in the near future (Not wcsa because its not my site). However Festival Sponsors can have free for life advertising on Real Whitby.

    Cant say fairer than that.

    Hi Mike, Martin.

    I have created a specific category on http://www.whitbyseaanglers.co.uk especially for festival sponsors.


    All I need now is 150-500 words and several good quality pictures about each business. Im happy to add the information and promote these businesses but I also need them to help just a little bit by sending me the info and pics.
