Budget Marine Trinidad title sponsors TTGFA Wahoo Tournament 22 - 23 March 2014
Budget Marine is very proud to announce that it will be title sponsor of the Trinidad & Tobago Game Fishing Association's (TTGFA) Wahoo Blow Out Tournament 22 - 23 March 2014.
Since the chandlery first opened in Chaguaramas in 1996, Budget Marine Trinidad has supported many fishing events such as the Marlin Madness and Tarpon Thunder Tournaments in Tobago among others, with sponsorships, equipment supply and timely discounts on fishing products in the run up to events. One of Budget Marine Trinidad’s first directors was Sid Johnson, who spearheaded tag and release methods in T & T and current directors John and Chris Skinner are keenly competitive sports fishermen on their Bertram Temptation, so it is no surprise that the Budget Marine/TTGFA relationship is a long standing one.
Hosted at the Trinidad and Tobago Yacht Club in Bay Shore, not too far from Budget Marine store, this event draws around 30 boats and 100 anglers, including a good number of junior anglers. Each year a substantial part of the catch is given to 7 different local charities.
In recent years Budget Marine Trinidad has placed greater focus on the requirements of its very active fishing community, increasing its fishing product lines and seeking to play a more effective and visible role in promoting this sport in T & T. Through title sponsorship of the 2014 Wahoo Tournament, Budget Marine hopes to establish a mutually beneficial partnership with TTGFA for the future.
