Join us in La Rochelle this year for the 4th BARRACUDA TOUR.
2016 BARRACUDA TOUR
The 4th BARRACUDA TOUR is organised by BENETEAU, together with a number of partners. This event holds a very special place in the hearts of BARRACUDA owners and it is about to get underway. For the occasion, the new edition to the range, the BARRACUDA 8, will join the fleet. Since 2013, from the first year on the Breton coast to the Yellow Sea of China, the BARRACUDA TOUR no kill fishing competition has brought together nearly 1000 professional and amateur anglers, to enjoy the experience of sport fishing on board the BARRACUDA fleet.
The BARRACUDA TOUR has embraced a new concept in France as well as abroad. The year 2016 will have three main highlights: the SELECTION period in spring 2016 organised by Beneteau’s network of dealers, the AMATEUR CHALLENGE, open to everyone, that will take place from Friday 27 to Sunday, 29 May 2016 in La Rochelle and finally the GRAND FINALE, which will take place from Wednesday 1 June to Saturday 4 June, also in La Rochelle.
Who can join in?
Are you a Barracuda owner? You will be selected as a matter of course and may register for the Selections, Amateur Challenge and the Grand Finale. If you are not a Barracuda owner, you can register for the Selections and the Amateur Challenge. The winners of each competition will qualify to take part in the Grand Finale.
How to take part ?
By registering for the BARRACUDA TOUR Selections
The BENETEAU network of dealers will be organising a day-long fishing competition in their respective regions. The selections will be open to any owner of a BENETEAU motorboat. At the end of this day, the winner will qualify for the Grand Finale in La Rochelle.
By registering for the AMATEUR CHALLENGE, which will take place from Friday 27 to Sunday, 29 May 2016. Make up a crew of 3 to 4 people and take part in the friendly and festive Amateur Challenge. Each crew will be given a Barracuda as well as fishing equipment. The keys of the Barracuda 8 will be handed to the winner of the Amateur Challenge, to defend BENETEAU’s colours in the Grand Finale. Please note that any Barracuda 7, 8 or 9 owner may take part with his boat, which is an ideal opportunity to prepare for the Grand Finale.
2016 Barracuda Tour and Village
The town of La Rochelle will welcome the Barracuda Tour village for one week, from 27 May to 4 June 2016. The general public will be invited to participate in a broad programme of activities and tests in the company of keen anglers in the village marquee. The BARRACUDA TOUR Grand Finale, which will take place from Wednesday 1 June to Saturday 4 June, will unite the Barracuda owners, the winners of each SELECTION, the crews of our partners and finally the winner of the AMATEUR CHALLENGE, for one last fishing competition.
