Coastguard appeals for people not to go out on the water
---
Coastguard New Zealand is asking people not to go out on the water today or during the lockdown period to avoid putting themselves or Coastguard volunteers in harm’s way.

“Last year Coastguard volunteers responded to more than 3,700 calls for help, proving that regardless of planning and preparation, people can’t always rely on their own steam to get home,” says Coastguard New Zealand CEO, Callum Gillespie.

“As individuals we need to recognise that our actions can have an effect on others,” he adds.

“We have had a lot of calls and messages from the public asking if they’re able to go out on the water during the lockdown period, the answer is no. Should you get into difficulty, you will quickly want help from Coastguard volunteers and staff, requiring them to leave self-isolation and come together to help you.”

“Please don’t put yourself or others at risk, stay off the water and out of harm’s way as we unite against Covid-19.”

What a great turnout!! Shortened to 3 days due to the inclement weather, some 50 boats and 150 anglers took part in the 36 Degrees Tutukaka One Base Tournament in conjunction with Air Vanuatu & Furuno.
Sorry to say that the fish remained elusive, with many more sightings than actual hook ups or drops, but we still managed a contest tally of 1 Yellowtail Kingfish, 4 Yellowfin Tuna, 1 tagged Stripey, 1 tagged Broadbill and 3 landed Marlin.
Heaviest Kingfish went to Marlene Gentry on Catchem2 with a Kingy of 10.64 on 8kg line.
Heaviest Tuna went to Peter Morrison on Euro with a Yellowfin weighing in at 24.6kg.
The team on Escapade took out the tag and release Billfish section with a tagged Broadbill estimated at 70kg to Aaron Armstrong.
It was the team on Silva Fox (who just happened to include our major sponsors 36 Degrees!) who took out the Heaviest Billfish section with a nice Stripey weighing in at 121.8kg to Chris Rouse. The team also took out the Billfish Bonanza to the tune of $2,295!!
Taking out the “Overall Most Points Billfish” section with their one tagged Stripey and one landed Stripey was the team fishing on “Catchem 2” – Skipper Kerry Gentry & Angler Marlene Gentry who will be winging their way to Vanuatu with air fares courtesy of Air Vanuatu and 7 nights accommodation in the beautiful Havannah Harbour, Vanuatu courtesy of 36 Degrees, Havannah Harbour Fishing Charters and WDSAC – Vanuatu here they come!
A HUGE thank you to all of our many Sponsors, and in particular to our long standing Sponsors Air Vanuatu and Furuno, and of course our new Major Sponsors 36 Degrees Brokers!!
