Since 1941, the Stuart Sailfish Club Foundation has focused on the conservation of game fish and encouraged sport fishing-related tourism in Martin County. The Club is now in its 80th year and is one of the oldest game fish conservation clubs in the United States. We were also one of the first clubs to require all release sailfish tournaments since the early 1960’s and a leader in requiring all circle hook tournaments to decrease the fatality rate in released billfish.
The Club’s mission has always been, and remains to this day, to facilitate game fish conservation, to educate our members and our community on game fish conservation and to support and promote marine industries and marine conservation organizations both on the Treasure Coast and nationally. Supporting that mission, the Club also funds up to five annual scholarships to local high school graduates who endeavor to excel in marine sciences.
Our Light Tackle Tournament, in its 68th year, ranks among the longest running and most prestigious in the United States, and our 35-year young Ladies Tournament financially supports Friends in Pink, a local nonprofit benefiting breast cancer victims in a three-county area. These tournaments and others support the ongoing efforts of both local and national marine conservation organizations.
Your sponsorship will further the goals of the Club’s founders and give you the opportunity to promote your business to the finest anglers on the East Coast.
We offer a range of sponsorship levels and you may choose to be an overall club sponsor or a single tournament sponsor. Either way, the benefits are numerous and your participation helps us continue the goals of the original founders and gives you the opportunity to promote your business to the finest anglers and crews on the water.
