21st Hawkesbury Classic Results
  |  First Published: December 2013



The 21st Hawkesbury Classic has been run and won, with the massive weigh-in on Sunday November 10 at Pitt Town Sporting Club Hosted by Pitt Town Fishing Club Inc.

The weather conditions weren’t favourable for fishing but the biggest dedicated estuary competition in Australia brings out the true anglers that battle all elements to try to catch that winning fish. Approximately 600 anglers did battle, vying to be crowned the Hawkesbury River Champion.

Craig Williams took out the major place with his nice jewfish of 11.2kg, and 2 boats were also given away on the day – a raffle boat and another bigger boat as a lucky door prize donated by Blakes Marine. The Raffle boat was won by J Smith of Maroota, and the lucky door prize boat was won by local junior angler Lachlan Chugg.

The event’s massive auction, run by local radio personality Steve Wilkins, provided plenty of bargain opportunities for attendees.

Each year, 100% of the proceeds of the Hawkesbury Classic go to local charities. This year the charity was Windsor Park P/S (a special education unit for underprivileged kids) and Pitt Town P/S.

The Hawkesbury Classic has raised approximately $500,000 for charity since the series began. - Brett Chain
