The Ocean Reef Sailfish Championship includes a series of tournaments. The next is later this month with the Reef Cup Invitational Sailfish Tournament scheduled for Thursday, January 28th to Saturday, January 30th.  Mark your calendars for this traditional Ocean Reef event where if you are not on the water, you can celebrate with the annual viewing of anglers returning to the Reef every afternoon.
