Husavik has been very lively because of the Husavik Festival – Candy days & Swedish days 2006 - and this morning a sea angling competition was held by GENTLE GIANTS & GPG.

A lot of people participated in the sea angling competition – local people as well as tourists! Competitors were divided into three boats – Athena ÞH, Sædís ÞH and Ásgeir ÞH, which all departed from Husavik harbour at 8:00 and returned at 12:00.

Weather conditions were outstanding and catching very good – mainly cod – in our rich fishing grounds close to Husavik.

Total catch was 1.463 kg. From only 14 persons (children included) in only 4 hours altogether harbour to harbour. 

This competition has run its second year from today and will be an annual event in Husavik in years to come; growing rapidly each year.

Gentle Giants & GPG want to thank everyone who participated one way or the other; boat owners included – and are looking forward to seeing you in next competition 2007.
