HIBT announces 2nd annual Great Marlin Race


Teams or individual anglers participating in the 51st Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament will have an opportunity to sponsor a satellite tag in the 2010 Great Marlin Race.

The race will be monitored by Dr. Barbara Block and her Stanford University research team.

All proceeds will be used for Pacific Blue Marlin research.

The race will run for 120 days. The Pacific Blue Marlin traveling the furthest in that time period will be declared the winner.

The winner will receive a free entry for up to 6 anglers in the 52nd HIBT (does not include charter boat fees, lodging, or travel costs).

Satellite tag purchases are tax deductible as a charitable contribution in the United States. Deductibility may vary in other countries.

Last year’s winning marlin traveled 2,225 miles from the Big Island of Hawaii to just east of the Marquesas Islands in 93 days.

For more information or to receive an entry form contact Bob Kurz, Event Coordinator, at or 949-521-2473.
