We’ve got a short intermission before the next round of sanctioned tournaments kick off and the Champion’s Cup is gearing up for another couple of weeks of tough competition. Currently, 13 teams are fighting for the top prize among the Florida, Gulf Coast, East Coast, International and Hawaii Divisions. Check out the competition below, and if you feel like you’re up for a challenge, register now.* Current Champion’s Cup Team Lineup:

  • BAR South 60′ Spencer
  • Lo Que Sea 58′ Paul Mann
  • LUNATICO (Effie May) 63′ Titan
  • LUNATICO2 42′ Invincible
  • FINS UP 54′ Bertram
  • Fish Tank 65′ Hatteras
  • Krazy Salts 80′ Viking

  • Lucky Dog 57′ Bayliss

Winning a coveted Captain of the Year Cup is worth far more than any amount of money you could attain for the victory and this longstanding tradition will still be presented independently of the Champion Cup. However, we thought it would be nice to reward the rest of the fleet with new opportunities to win some extra cash.
