Much of the Governor's Cup fleet will stay in port today, but plenty of activities are expected on the docks at the Charleston Harbor Marina later this evening when the weigh-in is held from 5 to 8, followed by an 'auction on the beach' to benefit the SC Memorial Reef. (www.SCMemorialReef.org) The facilities at the Resort are well suited for any event and the Carolina Billfish Classic holds a 'beach party' after each day of competition that includes live music, catered dinner and a full-service Tiki Bar! There is also ample space for a 'Sporting Village' of Exhibitors including The Billfish Foundation (www.Billfish.org) and artists like Mark Ray from Morehead City, N.C. With his specialty of blue water art Mark supports 10 billfish tourneys each year in SC, NC and Fla. and he has donated three prints to be awarded to the top angler in each meatfish division. (www.MarkRayStudio.com) Right now tongues are still wagging at the CHM about the girl with four names, Anne Brady Moore Carlson, who caught the large 62.4-pound fish with two names, MAHI MAHI!!
