WELCOME TEAM WADADLI HOME
Monday 18th January 2016

The Antigua and Barbuda Sports Fishing Association would like to invite all sports fishermen and other vessels to join them in proudly welcoming Antigua’s own Team Wadadli Atlantic rowers home

The first and only Antiguan team to accomplish this transatlantic crossing to date. Three of these brave rowers are also very well-known fishermen back home, and have contributed significantly to our sport over the years.

In the hopes of an early February arrival back to their native land, currently estimated at February 6th,  The Antigua and Barbuda Sports Fishing Association would like to have a welcoming party of fishing boats and any other vessel’s if they desire, stationed off shore as they break the 6 mile mark from the finish line in Nelson’s Dockyard. From this point they will be followed to the dockyard and to the finish line where the horns will sound off in recognition of completing such an epic journey.

Please Note: All vessels taking part should be no closer than 300 feet minimum from them and please do not attempt to give them anything. This can cause disqualification. The lead boat will be Miss Ashley on channel 06.

All boats are encouraged to purchase two large Antiguan Flags that can be flown from either their outriggers or rigged into a rod holder. Flags can be purchased from Kit Hall at Anjo Wholesale by calling on tel: 732-1403 or Robert Hall on tel: 736-3474 at AquaSports in Heritage Quay. The price per flag is EC$50. All proceeds from the sale of the flags will go towards St. John’s Hospice, Team Wadadli’s charity.

Please spread the word to your family and friends. If you can’t get on a boat don’t give up, get your own flag and go to Shirley Heights or Fort Barrington and show your support. Then to the Nelson’s Dockyard as we welcome our team home.

Want to do more for the St. John’s Hospice? Be sure to check out the Team Wadadli Atlantic Rowers website for more information.
