Barracuda Tour 2016

22-06-2016

A major sport fishing event

Selections 2016

The 2016 Barracuda Tour featured something new – Selections. These were local no-kill fishing competitions organized in April, May and June by BENETEAU dealers. They brought together a great many boaters in France and abroad, no matter what their brand of boat.

It was a great opportunity to discover sport fishing in a friendly atmosphere over a weekend.

Each winning crew was offered a chance to take part in the Grand Finale in La Rochelle.

There was another change this year: seabass was not the only fish that you could catch. To adapt to local species, other fish were allowed, such as meagre.

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 

The Amateur Challenge

 The Barracuda Tour village at the Port des Minimes in La Rochelle welcomed participants, BENETEAU organisers and all their partners for the duration of the event. 

The first great rendezvous, the Amateur Challenge, took place from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 May 2016.  To every crew a Barracuda - the various amateur crews already owning a Barracuda and future buyers, as well as event partners competed on either side of Ile de Ré, in the areas of Antioche, Chassiron and Chauveau.
