The Viking View – Triple Play

Auspicious Takes the Crown

The newest Bermuda Triple Crown Billfish champ is Joe Rahman’s Viking 80 Auspicious. Joe and his team fished nine days during three tournaments which include the Billfish Blast, Big Game Classic and Sea Horse Anglers Club tournaments.
Auspicious started strong, placing second in the Billfish Blast with three blue marlin releases. They followed up by dominating the Big Game Classic with four blues to win the tournament and lead the Triple Crown.
The Sea Horse tournament was competitive with challengers eating into their lead. But Auspicious put five blue marlin on the board for a 2nd Place finish. This sealed the Triple Crown series win for the team.
Congratulations to Joe, Captain Edward “Cookie” Murray, mate Carl Copeland and teammates Kevin Stafford, Lynda Murray, Amy Laird and David Soares.
1st Time’s a Charm
With barely a chance to settle into her new slip, the Viking 80 Krazy Salt’s won the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor Marlin Tournament. Having just taken delivery of the boat days earlier, the team on the Anderson family’s boat released six white marlin for the win. Keith Greenberg, at the helm of Krazy Salt’s, claimed the Walt Hendee Captain’s Award. Third Place Boat went to the Viking 56 Insure with five white marlin.
