Sea Angling Classic 2022

RBS Marine Brand Partners to SAC 22

The Sea Angling Classic, an exciting new fishing competition for the Solent and will run from Portsmouth Historic Dockyard from 15th-19th June 2022.

RBS Marine are a brand partner for the event, and are very excited to be involved.

There are also a couple of ways that Rodman Owners can get involved with what is sure to be a fun and exciting event with some serious fishin’ and a massive prize table!

A number of Rodman boats and owners took part last year in a special ‘Media Launch Event’ for the Sea Angling Classic in June 2021. Ben and Paul from RBS Marine took out Rodman 1040 ‘Petina May’ and learnt a huge amount about competitive fishing and what the competition entails. The media launch event saw thirty boats heading out to compete with a £30,000 prize table. The full 2022 event will see places for over 100 boats and a prize table with a value of a staggering £150,000 – with first prize being a boat!

RBS Marine have been allocated spaces for Rodman boats in the competition, and although most of the spaces are filled, there are still a couple left. If you fancy getting in on the competition, here are some of the key bits of info you need to know:
