EC Shore 2023

President’s welcome

Dear fellow EFSA anglers and friends,

For this year’s EFSA European Shore Fishing Championships we welcome you to Holland!
EFSA Netherlands have become a regular hosting section for these competitions.
Many anglers are happy to return to these shores as they have come back from previous ones
with fond memories of those fish being caught off those beautiful beaches.

The fact that we are going to meet in May will hopefully prevent us from being exposed to
storms and cold weather.

When we were talking about the preparations for this event I have become more and more
impressed by the professionalism with which Miranda and her organising committee have been
planning these championships. You can expect many aspects such as getting your gear to the
fishing spots being catered for.

But also non fishing companions will enjoy the fact that Rotterdam and The Hague as well as the Belgian cities like Antwerp and Ghent are only a short car journey away. That should, however, not distract from the beautiful nature to be explored near the fishing venues.

I am looking forward to meeting many of you!

Marcus Wuest
EFSA President

Chairman EFSA Netherlands

Dear EFSA fishing friends,

It is with great pleasure that I invite you all on behalf of The EFSA
Netherlands to participate in the 30th EFSA Championship Shore Fishing
on May 10-13, 2023 Noordwijk.

We see it as a big challenge to be able to organize this Championship for the fifth time.
The beaches on the North Sea guarantee a variety number of fish species. Noordwijk is centrally located between the Cities of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague, so that it is very easy to visit these Cities. 

The organization is again in the hands of Miranda Koop, Clarinda and Frank van der Zande.
They have succeeded in organizing an excellent program for a favorable rate.

I hope to welcome many of you in May 2023 and wish you a pleasant stay and an excellent Tournament.

Frans van Oss
Chairman EFSA Netherlands.

Organising Committee

On behalf of EFSA The Netherlands we would like to invite you to the 30th EFSA SHORE competition.

Please come and fish our beautiful beaches once again.
After Texel , Domburg twice and Heinkenszand, we will be taking you to Noordwijk this time. 6 km of fishy beach, more northerly, just waiting for you all to cast out your leads.

While you all fish the competitions your significant other halves can enjoy themselves in town. Or in the lovely small villages just a short drive from Noordwijk.
We would like to thank the local club “De Sportvisser “ whole heartedly for letting us use their
Clubhouse , tractors and all other assistance they have given us in setting up this event.

The weather should be really great in May. But’s EFSA SHORE. What would it be without some rain. After a beached tanker, a howling south-westerly storm, frost and a beached whale we really don’t know what else we could do to make this a typical EFSA NETHERLANDS SHORE EVENT.

Tight lines all and we hope to be able to greet you all once again on the 10th of May 2023 !
