2016 Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown Leg III

The 2016 Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown Tournament

“kicked it up a notch” and ended with a “BAM!” 


Quoting celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse, who recently fished out of Los Sueños, best describes the events that took place last week during the third and final leg of the 2016 Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown Series.


Boats reported between 70 and 100 billfish releases per boat just days before the start of the third leg of the tournament. Expectations were high and the dock was buzzing. On the first day of Leg II in February 1,103 fish were released. Although that number was not outdone this leg, the fish were here, there and everywhere; they were just too full to take the bait. At the end of Day One 651 billfish, including 2 marlin, were released. That is more than one fish per minute or an average of 15 billfish per team. “Kind of a slow day.” Really? Words one only hears in Los Sueños! By the afternoon of Day 3 though, the fish were hungry and attacked en masse. All told, there were 6,570 fish released by an average of 43 boats over the nine days of competition that made up this year’s Signature Triple Crown. Last year’s alltime record of 5,732 fish was beat by 838 fish with an average fish to boat ratio of 51. Where else, we ask?


Day One ended with an exciting finish, Tarheel winning over Agitator on time, each with 2,800 points (28 sails) and only 5 minutes between them. Agitator who placed 2nd in Leg One and 1st in Leg Two, was able to move even further ahead in the running for Series Champion.


Day Two brought a reversal of fortunes. A total of 460 billfish were released during the eight hours of fishing. When lines out was called at 4:00 pm Agitator had relegated Tarheel into second place for the tournament win. Sea Angel had a great day moving up to third position after having placed 14th at the end of Day One.


Day Three was not only the last day of the tournament but also the final day of the Triple Crown Showdown. The day started off promising with 80 billfish released during the first hour. As time progressed things slowed down a bit. At 1:01 pm though, Jaruco called in a quintuple (5 fish released at the same time) and initiated a hail storm that continued past lines out! While doubles, triples and quadruples are commonplace in Los Sueños, quintuples are still considered a special event. At 1:33 pm another quintuple was called in by Jaruco. A third was called in at 1:37pm by Blue Eagle, then another by Wire We Here at 2:10 pm, followed by Plan B at 2:41 pm, Fish Tank at 2:55 pm, Uno Mas at 3:04 pm, and Pelese two minutes later. In the end there were 10 quintuples and 15 quadruples, not to mention an uncounted number of doubles and triples, radioed in to Control between 1:01 pm and 4:11 pm. A total of 455 billfish were released in the same period. BAM! Pelese who had a slow start in the morning with only 4 fish by noon, released 38 billfish in the last hour and a half. Jaruco released 43 billfish, the highest number of releases in a single day during the entire Series.


One could not have asked for a more exciting finish of the third leg of the 2016 Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown tournament. With this amount of fish anything was possible until the very end of the competition. All set and done Agitator dominated winning First Place of the Third Leg and was crowned Series Champion, Pelese having an incredible come back after Day One took second place and Sea Angel took Third Place. A total of 1,855 billfish were release during the Third Leg of the Series. Overall during the 9 days of competition 6, 570 billfish were released kicking it up 832 “notches” compared to 2015.


Back Stories

Agitator, a 51’ Scarborough, is new to Los Sueños and participated in the Triple Crown for the first time this year. They are a family team with son Captain Jon Duffie on the bridge. Mother Judith, father John and brother Jeremy angle with their friends Danny Gough and Charles “Billy” Gerlach. This was the year of the Agitator, having finished second in Leg I, First in Leg II and First in Leg III, ultimately being crowned 2016 Signature Champion. This talented team of anglers released an incredible 246 sailfish over a period of 9 days.


 

Pelese, a 60’ Spencer came in second place during Leg II and were the comeback kids on the third day of Leg III. Captain John Lagrone has been fishing the waters of Los Sueños for more than a decade. Owner Marc Stanley has put together a solid team of anglers including himself, John Bankston, Scott Levin, Matt Traber and Andy Moyes, who have proven to become one of the strongest teams in the competition.


Sea Angel, a 63’ F&S Boatworks just missed the leaderboard in Leg I by 100 points and in Leg II by 8 minutes, forcing the tournament committee to go back to the second last time in order to break the tie for third place. Needless to say, this team of family and friends with owner Greg Angel, his son Austin Angel, and their friends Greg Voell, Nolan Rauswinter and Jasen Gast, manning the lines, earned their place on the stage in Leg III, finishing just 100 points ahead of the 4th runner up, Trophy Box.

On behalf of the tournament committee, a heartfelt congratulations to all of the participants!

Reports From the Rip

 

Burke caught his first Blue Marlin and got thrown in 

 

The past few weeks have seen very pretty slow fishing here in Casa De Campo. The last week was brutally rough, with 25 to 30 kt winds nearly every day. The main body of fish has yet to show up here. But they do every year, so we are all waiting.



We have fished a little and had limited luck so far. We have hooked and lost a few and caught some fish. One of the Fish we caught was a Blue Marlin that could not have weighed more than 30 lbs. As Capt Tim Richardson of the Ambush said " It was kinda like a blue marlin... only smaller". We actually had one even smaller chase up a bait as we cleared the spread but it did not eat.



Well as it Does every season about this time, We have run out of American milk. We met some crew off of a yacht here and talked the Stewardess into smuggling a little milk off of their boat. Dan And I each savored it as if it was a fine wine.



Casa De Campo had their 2016 Season kick off party/ banquet last weekend. They really did a great job. Somehow they found a rock group that played southern rock. The food spread was so over the top good. Its a good thing I did not see the deserts before my main meal or I would have saved more space. Keep up the good work Vilma. Looking forward to the Gringos vs the dock attendants this sunday night.

 

Like a blue marlin only smaller

Tiara 50 Coupe

 


The sleek and elegant profile of the Tiara 50 Coupe coupled with warm dark woods and interior modern touches makes her a premium boat in her class. The 50 Coupe is designed to be a comfortable cruising boat while at the same time a perfect day boat for informal entertaining. The beam (15’11”) on this boat is slightly wider than the majority in its class, which provides larger living spaces while still making it easy to handle the lines while docking. 

 

The aft deck and swim platform on the 50 Coupe is well suited for entertaining and lounging by the water. The swim platform is 70” and lends itself the perfect place for jumping off the boat and enjoying the water. The massive size of the swim platform also makes it great for friends to come by on their tenders. Just a few steps up from the swim platform is the aft deck. The aft deck on the Tiara 50 Coupe features a large bench at the transom, a fiberglass table, and two upholstered seats flush against the house bulkhead, which face aft. This area creates a relaxed setting that will make it hard to leave.

 

 

One of the best features on the Tiara 50 Coupe is the open deck space with stainless steel sliding doors that can virtually turn the aft deck and galley into one space. This space is one of the major benefits to having the galley aft. The galley contains all the major appliances and large counter top space to match.  The galley also has ample below and above counter storage. 

 

Just forward of the galley is the salon. The salon on the Tiara 50 Coupe features a sofa and chair coupled with a hi-lotable on the port side. This hi-lo type table is a notable feature as it can be adjusted to cocktail height for casual conversation and entertaining. On the starboard side of the salon is the entertainment console and helm station. Having the helm station as part of the salon allows the captain to be part of the conversation while they are driving the boat. 


Below deck you are greeted by a light and airy atrium. On the port side of the atrium is a utility room with a stacked washer and dryer. The master stateroom is aft of the atrium. The large hull side windows coupled with the warm dark wood make the full beam master stateroom bright and homey. The master stateroom features an oversized queen with an upholstered headboard and ample storage under the berth. Just opposite of the berth is a settee. The head features teak counters, mahogany soles, and glass shower doors. Forward, you will enter the VIP stateroom through through bi-folding doors. A unique feature of the VIP stateroom is that the bed swings out so it can be both a queen sized bed or two twins. This feature accommodates a couple for a double bed or separate berths perfect for kids. Under the berth is ample storage.


  

 

The Tiara 50 Coupe is powered by twin 725-hp Volvo Penta IPSII-950 pod drive system with a joystick. She also comes with two 15” screens that are hooked up to the Volvo Penta diagnostic readouts, a Garmin 604 HD 6 KW open array radar and depth finder, and GPS chart plotter.

 

Whether you are looking to cruise or entertain, the Tiara 50 Coupe is a perfect fit for both. Her wide beam provides cozy living spaces that provide comfort on long trips and the space needed for entertaining. Overall the Tiara 50 Coupe is sure to please all guests.

Maritimo Offshore Race Team Taking on the World in 2016

Media Release

8 March 2016


MARITIMO OFFSHORE RACE TEAM

TAKING ON THE WORLD IN 2016

 

 

Gold Coast based Maritimo Offshore Racing is headed into its busiest year ever with new boats, upgraded designs and motors and a goal to be on top of the podium at events from Bowen in North Queensland to  Key West in the USA.

 

Race team manager and engine builder Kurt Davies said the team has an action packed year ahead.

 

He said Maritimo would be running three boats in the Australian Offshore Superboat Series including one new boat and two reconfigured boats. The series starts in July and there will be races in Bowen, Mackay, Coffs Harbour, Gosford, Lake Macquarie and Hervey Bay.

 

"We will use the Australian series to test the boat that we will be taking to Key West for the world championships," said Davies.

 

"The boat we take to Key West will be shipped at the end of September and it will compete in the Superboat Unlimited category.

 

"We did not have a good showing at the worlds in Key West last year and that was largely because we did not have enough time to test and refine our competing boat," he said. "This year is different and by using the Australian series to test our boats we will have plenty of opportunity  to refine and improve on our performance.

 

Davies said Maritimo's founder, Bill Barry-Cotter was heavily involved in the race team and the design and construction of the race boats.

 

He said Barry-Cotter had a lot of input into what the team does to the boats like the all important  engine configurations.

 

"We have the capability of reaching speeds up to 220 miles per hour, but in a racing environment we would normally be looking at reaching speeds of 180 miles per hour in the first few laps and then settling back to around averaging 160 miles per hour depending on how hard the competition is running," he said.

 

" The race boats are exposed to some of the highest stresses in motor racing and because the races in Key West are run over a whole week we try to race as hard as we need to but with double points up for grabs on the last race it’s important to keep the boats competitive all week.

 

"With Bill heavily involved in the decision making, we have intense discussions on how we can maximizeour engine performance." The race team designs, builds and tunes all the race engines in house. "

 

Maritimo Sales and Marketing Manager Greg Haines said the experience gained at the coal face of international offshore racing was invaluable in the design and performance of the company's production cruisers.

 

"No other Australian manufacturer , and actually very few internationally,  have the benefit of the learnings we gain from serious offshore racing which can be ultimately be  inbuilt into our production boats," he said.

Record Breaking Releases for the Los Sueños Triple Crown Leg Two

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION

Date: March 01, 2016

Contact: Ashley Bretecher Tournament Director

 

2,754 billfish released during the Second Leg of the 2016 Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown by 43 teams 12 years of tournament records shattered!


It was an epic three days at Los Sueños Resort Marina, located at Playa Herradura on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast. During the second leg of the third annual Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown billfish series, presented by Chantilly Air, February 24-27, 2016. All previous Los Sueños tournament records, going back 12 years and 34 individual events, were broken.


Imagine releasing 75 billfish in just three days and not even making it into the top 10 boats! Over the course of the competition, 108 anglers on the worlds most competitive saltwater sport fishing teams released a total of 2,754 billfish. To put this number in perspective, the fish to boat ratio is 64 fish per boat in three days, or close to 2 fish each and every minute of the tournament. Incredible numbers and incredible teams in an incredible place beyond compare!


DAY 1

All hoped for a busy day but by lines in at 8:00 am but no one was prepared for what the day would bring. The first double release was called in only four minutes after lines in by Blue Eagle. Exactly at 10:00 am Numero Uno released fish number 290. The bite continued. Radios were burning hot. At 12:00 o’clock tournament control logged fish number 512, released by Dragin Fly. At 2:01 pm Penny Perfect called in the first quadruple of the day, fish numbers 729 to 732. It was then that it became clear that the previous tournament record for the most billfish released in single day, previously set on the third day of the 2015 Triple Crown with 879 billfish, was only minutes away from being broken. Several teams - Pelese, Fish Tank, Pescadora and Jaruco - were fighting it out. The honor of receiving fish number 1000 went to No Agenda. By the end of Day 1 a total of 1,103 sailfish were caught and released, surpassing the previous record by 316 fish or 21%. To quote one of the observers It was insane out there! Wherever you looked fish were popping like rice”. Fitting for Costa Rica someone must have spilled the beans.


The most fish caught that historic day were released by Fish Tank and Pelese with 37 sailfish (3700 points) each, with Fish Tank releasing their last fish only 11 minutes before Pelese to win the day. Agitator, Sea Fix and Southern Pride also put on stellar performances, putting them into the top three spots for Leg II after the first day.

page1image22912

DAY 2

It was First Light who called in the first fish of Day 2 at 8:05 am. By 8:08 am five more fish were reported to tournament control, including a double by Sea Fix. It would be another busy day. By 10:48 am Pescadora briefly held the first place position for Leg II, followed by Agitator and Fish Tank. Release after release, often five or more in less than a minute, were called in. By 1:14 pm Pelese had moved into first place, followed by Dragin Fly and Agitator. By 3:08 pm Fish Tank had moved up to second place. At 3:48 pm fish number 2,000 was called in by Sea Fix. Tournament Control jokingly had to remind the teams that the tournament was still only on the second day of competition. The day ended with 932 billfish releases for a two-day total of 2,035 (all sails). The standings going into the last day of competition left Agitator in first place with 6600 points, Pelese in second with 6400 points and Spanish Fly in third with 6300 points.


DAY 3

It was anyones game going in to the third and final day. Agitator started the day at the top of the leaderboard with 6,600 points, with at least 10 teams in hot pursuit. The Tournament Committee posed the question - at what time would the all-time record for the most fish caught in a single tournament, being 2,170, be beat? It did not take long. By 9:34 am Dream Time released fish number 2,171 and opened a new chapter in Los Sueños tournament history book. By 10:07 am Agitator was still holding on to first place, Pelese was in second and Sea Angel in third Place. At 2:00 pm Pelese had moved into first place, bumping Agitator to second. Spanish Fly rounded out the top three, with Sea Angel just behind. Positions were changing by the minute. At 2:08 pm Reel Joy called in the only marlin release of the tournament. It was like a ping pong match - too fast to follow. When lines in was called at 4:00 pm, it was the closest leaderboard in Los Sueños history. Once all the scorecards were reviewed, the final standings were verified and announced at the awards ceremony. The 43 participating teams had released a three- day combined total of 2,754 billfish (2,752 sails and 1 marlin)!


It was an incredible three days of competition that provided a new benchmark in billfish tournament competition.


BACK STORIES

Agitator finished at the top of the leaderboard with 8,700 points (87 sails), followed by Pelese in second place with 8,600 points (86 sails), on time over Spanish Fly with 8,600 points (86 sails), over Sea Angel who had also achieved 8,600 points. It was so close that Spanish Fly and Sea Angel not only tied on points, but also on their last time, forcing the Tournament Committee to go back to their second last time with just 8 minutes between them.


Agitator, a 51’ Scarborough, is participating in a Los Sueños tournament for the first time at the 2016 Triple Crown. Having won second place during Leg One in January the team has started a solid winning streak. This time, Captain Jon Duffie took his anglers, Jonathan Duffie, Judith Duffie, Danny Gough and Charles Gerlach straight to the top of the podium. Agitator is now in an excellent position for the Triple Crown Showdown, where the Series Champion will be crowned on April 2nd.


Pelese has consistently been among the top performing teams to fish at Los Sueños. This tournament marked the first podium finish for this team of dedicated anglers, landing in second place, only 100 points behind the winning team. With Captain John Lagrone at the helm of this 60’ Spencer, Los Sueños owner Marc Stanley and his fellow anglers gave a handsome performance.


Spanish Fly, a 42’ Maverick built in Costa Rica, has fished the waters off the coast of Los Sueños for more than a decade. Captain Daniel “Danny” Espinoza is a local legend. He has led anglers Larry Drivon, Richard Lebo, J Godwin and Juan Carlos Fallas to success several times, including a first place finish during the first leg of the 2014 Signature Triple Crown.


On behalf of the tournament committee, a heartfelt congratulations to all of the participants!

Guests enjoyed a phenomenal buffet dinner and live musical performance by Mustang 65.
