Since last Friday, more than 70 participants have challenged the rain forecasts and have gone fishing from the Water Sport Center on Raset Beach with their kayak to prove who was the best. The sports director of the Fisheries section of Marina El Portet, Niko Lenarts has described the activity as "Excellent because of the great impact we have had, since two weeks after launching the contest we had already filled the places and had to expand the places due to the high demand of participants."
In this regard, Héctor Villar, attached to the management of Marina El Portet has indicated that "We will continue supporting the sport in the nautical aspects because it is our responsibility to act as sponsors in this type of activities".
Although the weather did not accompany Saturday, the participants did not resign and waited for it to stop raining to go out and enjoy fishing. Already on Sunday there was a broader truce that allowed to develop the bulk of the programming with total normality. The boats left at eight in the morning and were back after 13 hours to begin weighing the pieces.
Niko Lenarts has thanked each and every one of the participants for their interest, just as he has shown his gratitude to the numerous sponsors of the contest, especially the City Hall of Dénia and Marina El Portet, among many others.
