    Hi all ive been wondering if anyone has any information on which skippers have the best records when it comes to festival wins.

    Ive spoke to a couple of Whitby skippers today and they have said they couldn't put a number on how many times they have won as they have both been at it 30 years.

    Obviously some of the newer skippers wont have as long a trophy record as others because they aint been at it as long. So that should be taken into consideration

    But have we any festival winners within the forum and if so what year, boat, and size of fish won it for them ???

    Jim the float has kept a personal record since he took over with photos which I must admit is very impressive could anyone add to this ??

    cod help me !

    Re: SKIPPERS FESTIVAL WINS

    A bit of proper research would uncover it Perry. Gazette records in the Library and a good chat with Dave Perret. It will all be there, just a matter of digging it out.

    I would probably start by working out how long they have had 1 festival or 3 festivals per year. Then think about the dates. Throughout the 70's and 80's it was usually a 1 week festival in June or July. Go to Library and read sports section for those 2 months.

    Then when they switched to 3 festivals its a matter of finding the dates again and looking in the gazette.

    I can start you off with all winning boats back to at least 2006 as its all on this forum. Start at the link below then utilise the search bar at the top of the site :

    I would have a chat With Rich Ward too, I think hes had some big fish over the years. I will be interested to find out what you learn. If we can get it all together with some pics and quotes etc it would make a cracking article for the site. Keep up the good work mate I love stuff like this.

    All depends how far you go back i think most of the top skippers have all being up there at some time the early days 30lb + fish for winning the festivals these days 20lb fish are very good ,since i became chairman i got off the ground the spring festival and the late summer festivals plus i got sponsors to make all 3 festivals into cash prizes a lot work was involved but it has worked a treat for a lot of years now and enjoyed by 1000ss of angler over the years lets hope it continues.
