East Yorkshire coast prepares for a fantastic February fishing competition

The East Riding of Yorkshire coast will once again welcome anglers from the UK and abroad as they take their place at the 26th Paul Roggeman European Open Beach Championship (EOBC) from Friday, 15 February to Sunday, 17 February.

The three-day beach fishing competition stretches from the north end of North Marine Promenade, Bridlington to Pilot Jetty at Spurn Point, with participants competing for fantastic cash and tackle prizes out of a total prize fund of £35,000.

Advance tickets are in high demand (via www.eobc.co.uk) with anglers from across Europe wanting to take part in the competition. Tickets will also be available between 7–10pm on the Friday and 7–9am on Saturday and Sunday from the EOBC site office at Sand le Mere Holiday Village, Tunstall.

The increasingly popular warm-up ‘Flattie Bash’ event will take place on Friday, 15 February, kick-starting a full weekend of angling.

This catch and release event will be held at Hornsea and Mappleton with fishing times between 10.30am–2.30pm. Tickets are £10 per person (cash only) with registration taking place on the day at Hornsea Floral Hall from 8–10.30am.

Fishing times for the main championship starts at 9am on both the Saturday and Sunday of this exciting weekend, with the results and prizes announced and handed out on both evenings at the event HQ (Sand le Mere Holiday Village).

For those who don’t catch anything in size, there is still a great opportunity to meet other anglers, exhibitors and the Sea Angling Adventures team (see their Youtube channel) at the event HQ.

Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We are proud to yet again host this prestigious angling competition to our coastline. 

“It is without doubt the largest three-day beach fishing championship event in Europe, so we are excited that competitors from countries such as Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands can enjoy our surroundings.

“We also welcome the economic benefits the event will bring for local businesses, as we know from previous years’ experience it generates an estimated half a million pounds each time.”

Safety Update/Notices

Please keep an eye out for any further updates on Facebook and our website. We will also have an information board at the reception of our event HQ at Sand le Mere holiday Village.

EY Events operate a zero tolerance policy towards littering at the event. All anglers are responsible for taking pride in our beaches and disposing of their own waste.
