Posted on 12 January 2009

MIASF acquired the event from The Fort Lauderdale Billfish Tournament, Inc. in 2007 and conducted the 2008 tournament under the management of US Recreational Alliance. Former event producer East Coast Eventz recently decided to relinquish promotion and production responsibilities.
MIASF board member Kitty McGowan, of Nauticom Communications, has volunteered to serve as tournament director for the Feb. 5-8 event. This year’s tournament is part of the Sailfish Pro Series, an organized association of professional sail fishing teams competing for a season-long championship.
