Due to advanced booking commitments for whale watching, the Tongan International Billfish Tournament has been brought forward several months.
Held in October this year, the week-long event will now be held in July in the foreseeable future. Club president Steve Campbell says having the tournament in July, before the whale watching season begins in earnest, will take pressure off the availability of both the boats and accommodation.
The 2019 tournament will commence on Monday July 8, followed by four days fishing, concluding with prizegiving on Saturday July 13. The 2020 contest will be held over the week of July 6-11.
