HMY Yachts was proud to sponsor “The Yacht Club Sailfish Challenge,” a tournament that was started five years ago by Eric Stelnicki from Lauderdale Yacht Club. The original three participating clubs were Lauderdale, Coral Ridge, and Coral Reef. After the first year Key Biscayne and Biscayne Bay joined, this year Hillsboro joined the tournament. The tournament is capped at 50 boats. First, second and third place prizes for each individual club are awarded. Then the Top Five boats from each club scores are added up to determine the overall CLUB champion. The winning club hosts the perpetual trophy and gets to host the party and banquet the following year.
HMY Yachts Sales Representative Mike Scalisi helped found the tournament with Eric Stelnicki 5 years ago. HMY Yachts was proud to sponsor both the Top Lady Angler Award and Top Jr. Angler Award where cash prizes were presented to both award winners. HMY Sales Representatives Mike Scalisi and Matt Long both took home first place trophies for their respective yacht clubs. Mike Scalisi and Matt Long work out of the HMY Yachts Fort Lauderdale location at Harbour Towne Marina.
