Portorož hosts the World Championship in Boat Angling

From 6 to 13 November, the Hotel Histrion hosted the participants of the 20th World Championship in Boat Angling. Organised by the International Sea Sport Fishing Federation, the spectacular event saw the participation of seven teams from six countries: Spain, France, Italy, Montenegro, Croatia, and Slovenia. The angling took place every day over the course of 5-6 hours on six boats in Piran Bay. The final winner was the Croatian team, while the Slovenian participant, Leon Križman, also deserves a mention for making the biggest catch – a 1017 g piper. The event concluded with a gala dinner for the participants and organisers at the Hotel Histrion restaurant.
