**Unfortunately organisers, in conjunction with local authorities, have advised based on the weather forecast that the competition has had to be postponed.
The forecast for Friday afternoon is below:
"Strong Wind Advisory A04 for Hauraki Gulf, the area from Bream Head to Cape Colville : Westerly rising to 25 knots gusting 35 knots this afternoon, to 30 knots gusting 40 knots for a time Friday morning, then easing below advisory criteria Friday evening."
The organisers are sad to have to postpone, but authorities will not allow for a competition with this forecast. Although we appreciate some of the hardcore fishos are keen, the majority of our entries are families too and safety is paramount.
New event date will be released soon. Once the date has been announced and if you can't make the new date, (we will miss you!) you can request a refund by emailing the support team here: http://support.eventfinder.co.nz/hc/en-gb/requests/new **
