In the spirit of tradition, family and friends are planning a fishing tournament in memory of the late Gressmon Ebanks.

Slated for Easter Monday, March 28, the catch and release tournament is set to start at 9 a.m. and finish at 2 p.m.

Mr. Ebanks, who passed away in April 2013 was an avid fisherman in West Bay, especially in the waters around Barkers.

“This fishing tournament is about preserving our heritage and culture,” explained Eziethamae Bodden.

“It was always a Caymanian tradition to hold Easter catboat regattas and picnics, doing some fishing and have children race miniature coconut boats in the Barkers Bay area.”
