Republic Bank hails 48th Spice Island Billfish Tournament as a success

St. George’s, Grenada – February 20, 2017: Republic Bank is pleased to have partnered with the Spice Island Billfish Committee for a fourth consecutive year. The event, which ran from January 21 – 25, 2017 continues to attract some of the best anglers from the region, and internationally.

The Bank contributed $20,000.00 (Twenty Thousand Dollars) to ensure event continues to attract visitors to our shores; a sure source for much needed economic activity. This year a record sixty three (63) yachts docked at the St. George’s Lagoon for the event, with over 300 participants; a marked improvement over last year. This a positive sign that augurs well for the future of Grand Slam tournament and Grenada’s Sport Tourism product.

Republic Bank congratulates the winners, but as well, all our local anglers on their ability to compete with the region’s best while showcasing Grenada and its people as a safe, fun-filled tourism destination. Thirteen (13) of our local boats competed with other boats from the region. We look forward to the continued growth of this event and to even more participants gracing our shores in 2018.
