TIGHT LINES FISHING CLASSIC - 2014
Following the success of the 2013 event, the Yeppoon Coast Guard Tight Lines Fishing Classic will be held again on Friday 29 August – Sunday 31 August 2014.
The organising committee of the 2014 Yeppoon Coast Guard Tight Lines Fishing Classic is pleased to announce that three major sponsors have confirmed their continuing support.
• Rockhampton Prestige will again supply an Isuzu D Max dual cab ute as first prize
• Cooee Bay Marine will again supply a Quintrex boat and trailer package as second prize
• Keppel Bay Marina will again make the site for the three-day event available free of charge
Entry fees, rules and conditions will be available online early in 2014.
This major fundraising event for Yeppoon Coast Guard allows it to provide a 24/7 marine rescue service on the Capricorn Coast that now averages 150 assists per year.
Congratulations go to our major winners for 2013 (above) and indeed to all who picked up a prize at the event. Click on our Facebook link to see the many photo memories taken over the weekend of the festivities!
Welcome to the home of the Yeppoon Coast Guard Tight Lines Fishing Classic. The premier fishing and fund raising event held at Keppel Bay Marina in Rosslyn Bay in Central Queensland (Yeppoon) every year in August. Funds raised from the annual event are destined for the maintenance and purchase of new equipment and facilities for the local Coast Guard flotilla QF11. Your entry fee will be going towards a great cause and in fact may help to save someone's life through the selfless volunteer work of the Coast Guard. Your entry is needed!
It's important to know that there's no need to enter the actual fishing competition to be in the running for the fantastic random draw prizes.
Just buy yourself a ticket, be there when the draws are called, and you're in with a chance to win!
If you are considering berthing at Keppel Bay Marina for the event then you are in luck as there are extra berths available this year now that the new arm is complete!
Please tell your friends about the event and spread the word far and wide. We want to make the Tight Lines Fishing Classic the premier event of its type on the August/September calendar!
The Tight Lines Committee.
