We'll finally see who is really the best!

The debate of big-boat versus small-boat has raged on for years. The big boats typically take home the big money, but lately there have been some small boats winning major tournaments as well. The biggest point of contention is that the high flybridges and tall towers of the big boats give them an unfair advantage in sight fishing for sailfish. Whatever the case may be, the bottom line is that at the Yamaha Outboard Championship, all teams will be as evenly matched as possible. No longer will anyone have any excuse to not recognize the winners as truly the best this sport has to offer. And like many of our other tournaemnts, we made sure to include a great assortment of parties and unique features to keep everyone happy.
