The team at SEAmless Marine, Inc. was very proud to be a participating sponsor in the 2013 Third Annual Hyannis Tuna Fest, June 20th to 22nd. This year’s event was hosted by the Hyannis Marina and Trader Ed’s Restaurant. Attendees to the popular Cape Cod event were treated to a world-class bluefin tuna sportfishing competition designed to help the region celebrate one of the best bluefin tuna fisheries in the world.
About the Tuna Fest
The Hyannis Tuna Fest first launched in 2011, and was such a huge success that Castafari, the organizers of the event, decided to do it again. 2012 was a big hit and this year’s event in 2013 was even bigger and better with more participants, sponsors and $20,000 in cash prizes! The Tuna Fest is not a “closed event” – it is completely open to the public, offering competitive fishing opportunities to boat owners and offshore fishing enthusiasts alike.
The organizers of the Tuna Fest strategically picked the early season for this event because it is one of the most productive time of the year for Cape Cod bluefin tuna fishing. The tuna are also very close to shore in June – sometimes just a mile or so off the beach. As a result, various fishing strategies and techniques can be used and were allowed in the tournament rules, making it a lot more fun and exciting for all.
Over 60 boats were anticipated for the 2013 event, which included lots of fun happenings for participants and attendees, including a sponsor tent, great food and entertainment. In addition to cash prizes, participants are also eligible to win premium tackle prizes and the Simrad Electronics award. The Miss 2013 Tuna Fest bikini contest, as well as an authentic reggae band and steel drum band, were also featured during the three-day event. A marine industry vendor display, lobster and steak dinners and much more all added to the excitement.
In addition to sponsoring the 2013 Hyannis Tuna Fest, this event also worked to support the public charity ONE MISSION, a program which dedicates its time to enhancing the lives of patients and families affected by pediatric cancer. ONE MISSION works to provide help, hope, care and support by funding life-saving research and support programs and services designed to help families deal with all of the emotional, financial and physical challenges that are associated with pediatric cancer.
Over $10,000 was raised for ONE MISSION at the 2013 Tuna Fest event and additional funds were raised at a silent auction that was held for the foundation. All of the programs that are funded by ONE MISSION directly benefit medical programs that work with pediatric cancer patients, children and adolescents that have been diagnosed with cancer and the families who tirelessly support them. ONE MISSION is a Section 501(c) (3) public charity under the Internal Revenue Code and all donations are tax-deductible as allowed by the IRS.
