Riviera, Australia’s most awarded pleasure boat builder has teamed up with Riviera owner Peter Teakle for the annual Riviera Port Lincoln Tuna Classic.

The two day fishing event has already attracted teams from interstate and abroad and with a limit of 20 boats in the tournament, organisers are encouraging early nominations.


Event organiser Peter Teakle said schools of Southern Bluefin Tuna have already been sighted in the competition area.

'Where else in the world can five boats in two days catch 5,000kg of 16kg Southern Bluefin Tuna on 10kg lines as we did in 2007,' Peter said.

'We look forward to a great classic fishing tournament and this year we will have a spotter plane to inform all competitors of where the schools are to ensure there are plenty of fish for all.'

Port Lincoln has some of the best game fishing and cruising grounds in Australia and is home to the Southern Bluefin Tuna.

With its close proximity to the Spencer Gulf and the Great Australian Bight, Port Lincoln is a prime location for the annual Riviera Port Lincoln Tuna Classic.

A fleet of Rivieras travelling in convoy for R Marine South Australia’s Port Lincoln Owner Experience will depart Adelaide on April 21 bound for Port Lincoln. R Marine South Australia will host events such as a welcome dinner, beach party, sight-seeing helicopter rides, Harley-Davidson motorbike rides, and barbecue breakfasts before the fleet returns on April 25.

However, keen anglers among the fleet may choose to stay on for the annual Riviera Port Lincoln Tuna Classic which starts a few days later and therefore a second date of May 2 will apply.

There will be a range of trophies including one for the heaviest Southern Bluefin Tuna, highest point scoring boat, highest point scoring trailer boat, highest point scoring male angler, lady angler and junior angler.

This year’s tournament is the beginning of a new era for this event where the aspect is on family fun, education and sustainable fishing.


An event not to be missed by keen anglers, Peter Teakle is urging competitors to get their nominations in early to avoid disappointment.

Entries must be received by April 21 to ensure participation in the Riviera Port Lincoln Tuna Classic 2011.


A welcome night at the Marina Tavern will held on April 29 followed by the two day tournament on April 30 and May 1. The Presentation Dinner will be held on May 1 at the Marina Hotel and bookings are essential.

This is day 13 since leaving the mid Western Australian town of Carnarvon. Remote region. Beautiful town. This is day 13 since leaving the mid Western Australian town of Carnarvon. Remote region. Beautiful town. Kept cooler by the strong south winds, which make the trees bend and grow to the north. Carnarvon is nice, especially the months of September, October, November, and December. The wind is strong. Often near gale strength, with squalls and blue skies.
