Riggs Yacht Sales is excited to be both sponsoring the tournament and hosting the festivities in our open-air deck at the office, located at 2 1/2 Marina Street, Wrightsville Beach! The tournament will kick-off with Registration and a Captain’s Party (Open Bar, Food, Live Music) on Wednesday, May 29th. Fishing days, weigh-ins, and an award ceremony follow. A full schedule of events can be found on the Cape Fear Blue Marlin Tournament website.

If you are interested in sponsoring or fishing the tournament, please contact John D Riggs at 910-262-5566.

Riggs Yacht Sales was also pleased to host the Captain’s Party for the Rob Tennille tournament this year. This tournament serves as a memorial in honor of local Wrightsville Beach angler, Rob Tennille, who passed away in 2014. The tournament, formerly called The Bearded Clam Classic, is now held each year in Rob’s honor. Friends and family gather on the last weekend of each April to celebrate the start of the offshore season, and to remember Rob.
