Hastings & St Leonards 2 Day Beach Festival Results
Mark Rogers clear winner of the Festival
The Hastings & St Leonards Town Two Day Beach Festival was held last weekend. Unfortunately day one was cancelled thanks to Storm Brian with conditions on the Saturday being too dangerous to fish with mountainous seas sweeping the beach. On the Sunday the weather was much better with a stiff westerly and some welcome sunshine and fishing was possible. The sea was still rough though with a big swell.
The rough conditions had not settled enough for the whiting to come in and they were noticeably absent. Many anglers failed to weigh in and fish were hard to find. Bass, flounders, soles, pout and eels making up most of the catch
This year’s entry was very good with the match nearly full with 54 anglers fishing and some not making it due to the weather.
The overall winner was Mark Rogers taking the £500 first prize. He was fishing the New Church section and recorded a bag of 5lb 10oz which included the only cod caught in the match one of 4lb 2oz, which was also the heaviest fish winning him another £200.
Tom Wells was second with 8 fish for 4lb 12oz with 6 different species including a nice sole of 1lb 8oz. Another notable fish was a bass of 58cm (3lb 12oz) for Phil Lee. Glynnis Jones won the Ladies prize with 4oz, and Mick Snelling the veterans with 4lb 0oz. Saul Page and Dave Reed took the team prize.
This event was generously supported by the principal sponsor Hastings Angling Centre, Paul’s Tackle, SJ Homewood, Fusion Interiors, Coleman Construction and Utilities Ltd, Woods concrete Pumps Southern Ltd, ACW Brickworks Ltd, RX Fisheries, East Hastings Sea Angling Association and for Hastings & St Leonards Angling Association and for hosting the event.

South Coast Beach Championships 2017
9th December 2017
This year’s South Coast Beach Championship sponsored by Coleman Construction was fished on the 9th December in good but very chilly conditions with a light NW wind and modest surf. The sea was still quite coloured after a big gale two days before and this brought the whitings in large numbers. Many anglers having bags of 20 plus fish. Pout, dabs and flounders making up most of the catch.
Barry Coleman of Coleman Construction Ltd has generously sponsored this competition over the last 10 years but unfortunately this is his last year as he is going to support other events in the town. He was presented with a Christmas hamper to show our appreciation, many thanks again Barry for all your support.
Many thanks to all the organisers and helpers for another very well run competition.
The next match is the Charity Black Cat match 10am – noon Christmas Day.
The Hastings Angling Centre open is on Saturday 20th January, details and entry call Hastings Angling Centre

The club has a keen beach and boat angling and social community. We can accommodate boats up to 23 feet in length in our secure compound provided they are fitted with beach keels, as boats are beach launched. We have workshops for boat maintenance and fitting of keels by yourself if required, and secure storage areas for outboard engines and fishing gear. The area around Hastings uniquely offers a very wide variety of fishing, see our club records and photo gallery. You will be in good company in this very friendly club. Our members come from all walks of life and can offer help and advice if required. Our membership fees are very reasonable.
