|Event Title:||EFSA European Boat and Line Class Championships 2019|
|Event Date:||9th to 13th September 2019|
|Entries Closing Date:||31 March 2019|
As per the brochure there will be a 2 day Line Class event within the Boat Championship. The line supplied in the registration pack will be 250 yds of 30lb braid not 35lb as stated in the brochure and will be available from Weymouth Angling Centre from 3rd September. As we will be fishing for conger and ray, barbless or crushed barb hooks must be used, as requested by the boat skippers. Line Class rule 4 prohibits pirks and lead heads, however, a pirk or hook up lead can be used as a weight with a barbless hook attached directly to it or a trace of maximum 30cm below it. The pirk or hook up lead must have at least a 90cm length of line of 150lb minimum breaking strain tied directly above it to enable the skippers to grip the line and release fish at the side of the boat.
The boat draw has been done but this will not be circulated until the event, to prevent the anglers inundating the skippers with questions so wasting a lot of their time.
