Members Questions to the Committee

Q: Can I get a replacement certificate as mines is lost/has been destroyed?
A: Yes, provided that the information you supply can be verified by SACGB records. Please email secretary with known details

Q: What determines a shark as a qualifier?
A: We no longer weigh sharks to confirm full membership. Provided the length from the tip of the nose to the fork of the tail is a minimum of 70” it is a qualifier shark

Q: What is the British Measured & Released Record?
A: This listing replaces the British Record where fish must be weighed and very probably killed to do so. This record is awarded on the combined girth and nose to fork of tail dimensions, eg a 106” nose to fork of tail and a girth of 44” is a 150” shark in Measured & Released terms

Q: How do I make payments to the SACGB?
A: This can be done by cheque to SACGB, c/o The Harbour Office, Buller Quay, East Looe, PL13 1DX or by Bank Transfer to,

Q: Is it possible to have an inter-port competition organised by the SACGB?
A: The SACGB currently don’t have the resource or the level of skipper membership in other ports to organise this. It remains an ambition of the SACGB to achieve this

Q: Is it possible to have a team event at the Annual SACGB Festival?
A: The answer is yes, although probably restricted to two persons to a team. The SACGB Committee are still considering how best to introduce this

Q: To help me budget for the Annual Festival can I pay in monthly instalments?
A: Yes this is possible, please find details here

Q: Can my son/daughter who is under 12 years of age become a member?
A: Although some young people under the age of 12 are physically strong enough to be capable of the sustained effort required to catch and release a medium size shark, most find it difficult. Our experience is that this can dissuade them from continuing in the sport which is why the club have a membership age limit

It is important to the committee that their actions develop the club wherever possible in line with members expectations and continue to deliver the level of engagement and membership value expected from a club with our history and pedigree.In support of this objective the committee welcome all member suggestions, observations and questions. This can be done in writing to, The Secretary, c/o The Harbour Office, Buller Quay, East Looe, PL13 1DX by sacgb1953@gmail.com or via the form below.
