There were rainy skies, rough seas, but still simply… just another day in paradise for the High-E-Fishin-Sea XXVII event. The Palm Beach Air Conditioning Contractors Association’s 27th annual Kingfish, Wahoo, Dolphin Tournament, was held at the Rivera Beach Marina on June 9th.
Special thanks to the Riviera Beach Marina for hosting and Rafiki Tiki catering a successful event. Everyone enjoyed the fish and chicken buffet. The Tournament was a great deal of fun for those who attended! Twenty one boats participated, with over 100 fishermen. More than $2,000.00 was raised for the Maurice J.
