In the event of a tie on billfish points between multiple teams, rankings will be determined by the first team to reach their aggregate point total by time of catch.
Example: If Team “A” reached their point total at 1:17pm and Team “B” reached their point total at 2:16pm, Team “A” beats Team “B”.
PLEASE NOTE: Make sure your video time/date profiles are accurate to Costa Rica time zone!
Note: In Costa Rica, you are not allowed to bring any Billfish (sailfish or marlin) out of the water. You can however take photo's/videos of the Billfish along-side the boat before the leader is cut and the Billfish is released.
