21st Hawkesbury Classic
  |  First Published: November 2013



The Pitt Town Fishing Club will host the Annual Hawkesbury Fishing Classic over the weekend of November 8-10.

This is the 21st year and the Hawkesbury Fishing Classic has become the largest dedicated estuary competition in the Southern Hemisphere. With entries capped at 1000 and truckloads of spectators at the weigh-in, it’s sure to bring a smile to the face of any angler of any age.

Many entrants travel to the Hawkesbury district from all over NSW and interstate, just to enter the Hawkesbury Classic.

Blakes Marine at Mulgrave are again this year’s major sponsors for the Hawkesbury Fishing Classic, donating some awesome prizes in conjunction with Suzuki Marine, Stacer Boats and Fusion sound systems, including a complete boat motor package, marine sound systems and more.

Thanks must also go to all the other sponsors who donate not only goods and services but also their time to help make the Hawkesbury Fishing Classic such a huge success.

Money raised over the years through sponsorships, entries, guessing competitions, etc have benefited local charities and organizations such as Windsor Park Public School (special education unit for underprivelidged kids), Camp Quality, Royal Volunteer Coastal Patrol to name just a few, along with Hawkesbury Living Trust (cancer clinic).

To date we have given away over $400,000 – 100% of proceeds go to charity.

The Hawkesbury Fishing Classic is not only a fishing competition with categories for men, woman and children but it’s also a massive social day with a carnival atmosphere for all the family to enjoy with plenty of food, drinks, entertainment and Jumping castles etc for the kids.

There are also heaps of fantastic prizes to be won on the day in the way of raffles and lucky draws. One lucky entrant will take home a brand new boat and motor package, complete on trailer, along with safety gear, all fully registered, just for entering and being present at the weigh-in on the day.

You only have to enter, not necessarily fish, or weigh in a fish to win this fantastic prize. Just fill in and post the official entry form and be in attendance at the weigh-in on Sunday November 6, check in at the registration table before 2pm and you’re in with a chance, it’s as simple as that!

Nowhere are the odds better than that to win a boat.

There is also another boat and motor package, fully registered, complete with safety gear also on registered trailer to be raffled on the day.

A huge auction will also be run where some terrific items can be snapped up at bargain basement prices. Anything from fishing gear, 4WD accessories, outdoor entertaining furniture, tools and much more.

So come along to one of the Hawkesbury district’s biggest events, have a fun day and give support to two very worthwhile charities who really need it.

All sponsors are listed on our entry form. Be sure to pick one up from your local tackle store or jump on our website and print one off at www.pitttownfishingclub.webs.com/ – Brett Chain
