After the sucess of last years winter uptiding festival, the Whitby Charter Skippers Association will be running another event this year during late November and early December. This years week long uptiding festival will run from 30th November to 6th December. Glenn Stocks and Stagecoach Supertram from Sheffield will again sponsor the event and the prizes will be £1000 for the heaviest single cod, £300 for second heaviest cod and £200 for 3rd heaviest cod. There will also be a prize of £100 for the heaviest fish of any other species.
Spokesman for the event Mick Leonard said “Last years winter festival was a huge sucess, with all the boats full over the whole weekend of the 3 day event. There was lots of fish weighed in and as always it was great to see everyone with smiling faces in the Fleece public house after the match.” – “Given the suces of lasts years festival we have now extended this years event to take place over a full week. At the present time some boats are fully booked but there are places available on most of the WCSA boats. However bookings are coming in fast so please book up a.s.a.p to save dissapointment.”
