For the third consecutive year, Republic Bank has agreed to partner with the Local Organising Committee to host the 47th annual Budget Marine Spice Island Billfish Tournament, to be held January 19-23, 2016 at the Grenada Yacht Club.
General Manager – Operations, Clifford Bailey, presented the sponsorship cheque, valued at $20,000.00 (Twenty Thousand Dollars), to the Chairman of the Spice Island Billfish Tournament, Richard Mc Intyre.
Republic Bank says it is pleased to support this sport tourism activity which draws at least fifty (50) fishing boats to the local shores each year, bringing valuable and much needed economic benefits.
This must-attend event attracts anglers from Venezuela in the South to the UK and Canada in the North.
It is highly anticipated that 2016 would be even bigger and better as the tournament evolves.
“We encourage all fishing enthusiasts as well as the general public to be a part of this spectacular event in the coming weeks”, said the bank in a press statement.
