Event planning company and tournament organizer Executive Adventures announces that the first ever Palm Beach Shootout will be held January 9 - 11, 2009 at the Cannonsport Marina in Palm Beach Shores, Florida.
Island casual is the theme of this private Sailfish Pro Series event, promoting camaraderie among SPS teams on the docks and intense competition on the water. Acting as the second leg of the 5 tournament regular season, the 18 Pro Series teams will compete for points toward the regular season total. Team Hostile currently holds the lead with 110 points after securing a first place victory with 20 sailfish releases during the first leg of the Series at the Sailfish Cup in Miami Beach. The top five teams plus one wildcard team will advance to a post season "fish-off' in May 2009 for the $100,000 grand prize.
The Palm Beach Shootout will provide an intimate look at the team dynamics of the Sailfish Pro Series with full television coverage, interviews and highlights for the television series currently in production.
A tentative schedule has been set for the weekend tournament. Friday January 9 will include check-in, a captain's meeting and a Kick-Off party held at the official host hotel, The Jupiter Beach Resort and Spa. Fishing will take place Saturday and Sunday with dockside interviews and awards ceremony Sunday evening. This private Sailfish Pro Series tournament is low-key in comparison to others, but has the quality, fun and highly competitive fishing participants have come to expect from Executive Adventures.
