eSolent supports Sea Angling Classic
eSolent is supporting the new Sea Angling Classic fishing and environmental challenge, set to take place on 23-25 July at MDL’s Northney Marina on Hayling Island.
This fishing event aims to promote and introduce fishing to younger generations with Fishing Academy sessions. All competitors will be involved in multiple beach clean ups and the event will provide vital research data on all fish species caught during the competition, before they are released back into the sea.
eSolent is donating an ePropulsion Vaquita electric kayak motor towards the prize table. Compact and light, weighing just 4kg, it has 8 speeds and will run for 5 hours at half speed.
“We have a passion for the sea and all forms of boating and watersports. With the ePropulsion range of electric outboard and pod drive motors, we are delighted to be supporting the Sea Angling Classic and the wider green agenda,” says Ed Phillips, director at eSolent.
“We believe electric boating is a great option for anglers, whether on a kayak, a small fishing boat or powering a large motor vessel and are already working closely with local amateur and professional fishermen. ePropulsion electric motors are quiet, clean and efficient. They are kinder to our oceans, with no risk of fuel spills and have no ongoing running costs.”
Ross Honey, founder of Angling Spirit and Sea Angling Classic comments: “We are delighted to welcome eSolent and introduce the ePropulsion electric motors to our Sea Angling Classic competition and conservation initiative, which aims to boost interest in fishing as well as vital marine research and preserving our ocean environments.”
