The European Boat Championship is a 4 days competition, all days counting, based on catch & release. All fish, independent of their size, count - except weevers. Fish are registered by the angler at your side, by pinching a hole in your scorecard.
A picture of the scorecard can be found in the brochure.
The scorecards are the same as used during European Boat 2013. The boats will be divided in 2 sides, starboard and port side, and each side count as 1 entity and have its daily winner. There will
be around 12 anglers/boatside.
All anglers will receive a score with respect to the boat-side winner, based on a score of 100 % for the winner. The European Boat Champion will be the one with the highest amount of boatpoints after 4 days, so the maximum
score is 400. Anglers tied on the same amount of fishing points, will be ranked by respectively : Fishing points – Number of fish - Number of species.
The scorecard consists of 16 categories. The maximum amount of clips (punched holes) is 10 per
category. The procedure is that you catch a fish, you show it to your neighbour angler, he/she clips a hole in the scorecard for the respective fish and after you returned the fish, you can start fishing again.
Cod, flounder and plaice have 2 categories,
based on their size, measuring equipment is available on the boat to determine the size and has to be verified by the angler or fishing captain clipping the hole.
If there are questions, there is a non-fishing captain present on all boats, who finally
decides. Any form of cheating or deceive will mean disqualitfication from that days fishing. After the fishing the scorecards are gathered and we recommend that you make a picture of your scorecard.
Please remember that you get 30 points extra for your first caught fish per category !
There is the possibility to register teams of 2 and teams of 4. In the
teams of 4 maximum 2 anglers from one national team can participate, but a team of e.g. 4 anglers consisting of 2 anglers from England A and 2 members from England B is OK. Entry fee per competition is 10 Euro/75 DKK/angler.
