    55th Australian Pacific Coast Spearfishing Championships

    Blog from Newcastle Neptunes about the recent Australian Pacific Coast Spearfishing Championships.

    After 2 postponements the competition was held on Saturday 24th May with visibility ranging from 5 to 15 metres and a metre of easterly swell at Port Stephens.

     Thanks to Adreno for their great sponsorship of the event with 77 divers receiving an Adreno cap, stickers and lanyard during the 3 attempts to run it, as well as other great gifts. The Beuchat reversible wetsuit voucher donated by Adreno was awarded to Ben Bayfield (San Souci Dolphins) for the largest fish, a 15.45kg kingfish.
