The Bermuda Triple Crown Billfish Championship celebrated it’s 10th anniversary this year with record numbers: 50 teams fished at least one event and 28 boats fished every leg of the championship with a total of 156 released billfish. It was a very exciting (and nerve wracking) championship for one team in particular, the Fa La Me Team on their 70’ Enclosed Bridge Viking. Fa La Me started the Sea Horse with a total of 800- points sitting in 17th place remaining 1473 points behind the Triple Crown leader. The second day of fishing brought the team into contention with three releases and a fourth release bringing the team to a total of 3300 points, only 27 points ahead of second place team, No Vacancy. Those 27 points proved enough as Fa La Me won the Bermuda Triple Crown Billfish Championship for the second time, a feat that has never before been achieved.
A huge congratulations to the entire team: Owner Frank Rodriguez, Captain Rob Moore, mates Taylor Beckford, Dave Berard and Jeffrey DeSilva. We are proud to have Team Fa La Me in the HMY Family as mate Dave Berard is an HMY Sales Representative and sold the 70’ Viking to Frank Rodriguez.
