Brixham Trawler Boat Race 2015

AM Seafoods Ltd were proud to sponsor three boats that took place in the annual Brixham Trawler Race on Saturday 20th June 2015

The three boats owned by Amber J Fishing are named the Sylvia T, Amber J and Jordan A.

All of the crew, family and skippers were provided with specially branded kit for the occasion.

The Brixham Trawler Boat race has become a huge fixture in the events calendar for fishermen and women based on the “English Riviera”. Annually the skippers and their crew dress the boats up with all manners of bunting and race each other twice around Tor Bay.

The after-party on the quayside is always fun for all the families and lets the fisherman have a catch-up. The event also raises thousands of pounds for local Charities. In 2013, the organisers were able to donate over £17,000 to fifteen Charities including Brixham’s Fishermans Mission, Shoalstone pool, Brixham Gig Club, Brixham Rugby Club and Brixham Museum

This year more than 20 trawlers set off from Brixham breakwater to race two laps of the Bay – heading past Paignton and Torquay harbour before reaching Hope’s Nose and returning to Berry Head. The trawlers assembled at Berry Head before the race to hold a sail-past down towards the start line in memory of local fisherman Adrian ‘Jock’ Strike who died recently following a long battle with cancer.

In a tight fought race the Sylvia T came in second place of the category for Scallop boats.

Congratulations to all that took part this year.
