The Perth Game Fishing Club, based in Fremantle, Western Australia had its annual awards ceremony on October 18th. MaxSea is a proud sponsor of the club and our Regional Sales Manager Thibault Hua attended the event.
The awards were held at the recently-refurbished Fremantle Sailing Club function room, overlooking the marina and Indian Ocean with truly stunningly beautiful views.
Thibault was hosted by President Ben Weston, Vice President Tim Carson and Rhyss Whittred – life member, whose boat has a full suite of electronics that include MaxSea and Furuno, and was one of the big winners in the awards.
Members of the Club got to spend time with Thibault and trade tips on sport fishing.
Rhyss’s vessel “Ashram” has already been featured on our blog after qualifying for the 2015 world championships in Costa Rica. He didn’t let his team of anglers down with some impressive awards:
Champion Boat – Ashram
Champion Male Angler – Rhyss Whittred
Champion Female – Sangeeta Menon
Champion Junior – Drew Ziepe
Most species tagged and released – Sangeeta Menon
Most fish tagged and released – Rhyss Whittred
PGFC enjoys a continued relationship with MaxSea, and has witnessed the increase of club members using MaxSea TimeZero PLOT software. The majority of the awards on the night went to boats running MaxSea software.
Last week, Regional Sales Manager Thibault Hua represented MaxSea at the IceFish exhibition which took place in Reykjavik. IceFish is the must-visit event of the commercial fishing industry. Here he tells us how it went.
MaxSea products were displayed at the stand of Iceland’s Furuno distributor Brimrún. Special emphasis was placed on our PC-radar and fishing-PC sounder solutions with Furuno sensor integration. The new WASSP interface was also very successful because of the increase in productivity and time it represents for bottom mapping tasks.
Brimrún has been the exclusive MaxSea distributor in Iceland for the last 3 years, and is highly-knowlegable on our software. Their input has always been priceless to the improvement of our products. Brimrún spends time training customers on how to use MaxSea. They have organised several training seminars and more are planned for the future. Get in touch with Brimrún to learn more.
Thibault would like to thank them for their support over the past years and for their welcome during the show.
MaxSea distributor Radio Electronic CC is located in Namibia and tells us about a recent installation of the commercial fishing software MaxSea TimeZero PLOT on one of Namibia’s Fisheries Patrol vessels, AK Mungunda.
Walvis Bay, Namibia
The vessel, “Anna Kakurukaze Mungunda”, is one of two Namibian Fisheries patrol vessels, based in Walvis Bay, Namibia:
She was built in 2003, is 59m in length and has a gross tonnage of 1413t.
As two of the Namibian Research vessels are already outfitted with MaxSea TimeZero installations, it was a logical choice to have the same type of system installed on this patrol vessel – for ease of sharing user data, such as PBG bathymetric data, among each other.
