European Boat Championships 2017 – Måløy, Norway 28th July – 06 August 2017

Schneider1Dear EFSA Family
Our love of fishing brings us to many scenic parts of the world and now we are truly in one of the most spectacular locations in Europe to enjoy the warm hospitality and friendship that our Norwegian hosts are famous for.
So, welcome everyone to MALOY here on the sout eastern side of VAGSOY island in beautiful Norway.
Maloy is the administrative centre of the municipality of Vagsoy in Sogn og Fjordane county and was granted TOWN status as recently as 1997. Every day we will see the Maloy Bridge which connects the town to the village of
Degnepoll on the mainland.
MALOY was originally founded as a trading centre on the small Island of Maloya, in the Ulvesundet strait between Vagsoy Island and the mainland. As trade flourished, the town gradually moved to the larger Island of Vagsoy and
became one of the most important fishing ports and fishing Centres in the region.
Norway has hunting and fishing traditions dating back thousands of years.
Nature has been kind to Norway, giving it a coastline extending to a length of more than 83.000 Km, including a multitude of Islands.
Many different species of Fish and Shellfish inhabit Norway’s coastal waters and with such an abundance of variety it is NO surprise that local Restaurants specialise in fish. The KRAFTSTASJONEN Restaurant, near the Tourist
Centre, for example is famous for its’ “Fish of the day“ menu. Try it and you are assured of a special treat.
Amongst the many species to be found and of interest to us Anglers are COD, including the Extra-Premium wild “SKREI“ which is Norwegian Cod in its prime, and regarded as “a True wonder of Nature“ and a culinary delicacy unlike any other. The word “Skrei“ comes from the old Norse language for “Wanderer“ which is a very fitting description of our EFSA FAMILY, as we travel the world in search of new fishing adventure and the opportunity to meet new friends and discover new places. I hope I can make your mouth water with this description.
Although we are here in Norway, Maloy, which is at Latitude 61,5 degrees North, is twinned with Lerwick, just 180 miles directly west of us on Latitude 60,8 degrees in the Shetlands. Twinning different towns was always intended
to foster friendship and understanding between different cultures and to promote cultural and commercial ties, as well as forming strategic international business links between member cities.
We are here as part of that fine intension of forging and re-affirming “ Good Relations “ between us all. We, the EFSA family, are here in the spirit of friendship and brotherhood and we look forward to enjoying the hospitality of our
hosts and experiencing the fine fishing in such wonderful surroundings.
I wish all of you great success in every sense of the word in our Angling Festival.

Your President/Chairman

Horst Schneider
