Kayak versus Jet Ski versus Ski Boat
The King of the Sea is now in its 7th Year and we are thrilled to welcome on board an exciting new title sponsor- Safire Insurance. So we would like to extend a warm welcome to Safire and a huge thanks for enabling us to continue growing this fantastic Fishing competition above and beyond expectations.
Anton Rohrs, Marketing Manager of Safire, says, “Insurance is about trust. Trust that your claims will be settled promptly and fairly and the knowledge that your dealings with your insurer will be totally professional. Safire Insurance Company Limited is a short-term insurer with a proven reputation dating back to 1987. By choosing to insure only responsible and risk-averse individuals we can afford to offer competitive rates and deliver fair and fast service, developing personal relationships with our clients and partners. Sponsoring this great event enables us to connect with typical Safire clientele, people who enjoy an action-packed lifestyle responsibly.”
Fishing, family and fun is what this event is all about and that is what makes it such a special and popular event. The Fishing is super competitive but all in good spirits as the anglers compete for top honours. Kayak versus Jet Ski versus Ski Boat all go up against each other to determine the King of the Sea. Whilst competing for overall bragging rights they are also competing for the top place in their respective categories making it even more interesting and fun. Alongside the fishing competition we also have the annual Freedivers King of the Bugs crayfish competition meaning those who hunt below the surface can join in the fun.
All festivities and registration takes place at Pumula Beach Hotel. Live music, seafood braais, wine tasting, sponsors’ demos and great family vibe make this a weekend to remember
