The Bay Bridge Boat Show, an annual springtime in-water powerboat show held in Stevensville, MD at the Bay Bridge Marina will open April 21-23, 2017. This regional show has experienced substantial growth in exhibitors since 2009 and in attendance over the past three years.
The Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show, a smaller version of the prestigious fall sailboat show, will run April 28-30, 2017. This show also is experiencing year over year growth in exhibitors, consumers, and boats displayed. Still in its infancy this show is demonstrating its potential with sailing lessons, live music, and tasting venues.
The 15th annual Palm Beach County KDW Classic, one of Florida’s largest fishing tournaments, returns to the Riviera Beach Marina on June 3rd & 4th. The popular event, co-hosted by the venerable West Palm Beach Fishing Club (WPBFC) and the City of Riviera Beach, routinely attracts over 200 boats and nearly 1,000 anglers. Over 140 boats are currently registered. The KDW Classic is a very family & friends oriented event offering a wide range of prizes for adults and kids. The tournament offers 10 guaranteed cash awards in all four categories, Kingfish, Dolphin, Wahoo and Juniors (kids age 12 & under).
Broad based support from sponsors, a great value to anglers and an ongoing commitment to give something back to the local community are why the KDW Classic has developed such a loyal following. Through the years tournament proceeds have been used to create new artificial reefs, install reef saving mooring buoys, support the City of Riviera Beach scholarship fund and aid the annual Kid’s Fishing Day program produced by the Fishing Club’s charitable affiliate, the Palm Beach County Fishing Foundation.
The Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County has been the KDW Classic’s presenting sponsor since the beginning. Numerous other sponsors participate in the event by underwriting the cash awards, providing raffle items and tournament giveaways. This year $34,000 in guaranteed cash prizes and $30,000 in raffle items and trophies are up for grabs.
Anglers can register for the tournament online at www.kdwclassic.com. The general public is invited to watch the tournament weigh-in on Saturday, June 4th along the newly renovated Riviera Beach Marina waterfront. The scales, located on the north end of the marina bulkhead, open at 12 noon and close at 4pm. For additional tournament information call the WPBFC at (561) 832-6780. –
Thank you to all those who were apart of the great success of the 2016 Fishing Tournament. We had 18 boats competing, subpar weather, and delicious food that was catered. We can’t thank our sponsors, boat crew, and pros enough for their generosity and supportive attitudes. Mark your calendars for next year’s Tournament, it’s booked for June 10th.
