2,190 kg Galjoen the Derby’s winning fish

Rudi Bowe

A galjoen pulling the scale at 2,190kg, caught by Andries Boshoff, was the winning fish at the recent Galjoen Derby, held at Henties Bay. Attractive prizes were up for grabs and all proceeds made from this angling competition was donated to Stepping Stone School, specialising in the education of mainly autistic children and children with neurological and/ or communicational difficulties.

Although a total of 237 anglers participated, only a very few fish were weighed in.
Andries Bosshoff caught his winning fish at Sarah Se Gat.
In the second place was Clinton Barnard with his 2,010kg galjoen and Johan Steyn third (1,950kg).
Stefan Jacksch came in fourth position with his galjoen of 1,885kg and Roberto Celotto fifth (1,820kg).
The proceeds of the day totalled a healthy N$65 900. The organisers of the Derby thanked both the sponsors, anglers and supported without whom this would not have been the success it turned out.
See you at next year’s Derby, they added.
