2017 Quest For The Crest Dates Are Set

quest crestTrue champions don’t make pit stops in victory lane – they live there.  That is the driving concept behind the highly touted ‘Quest for the Crest’ Sailfish Series.  This iconic series hosts some of the best billfishing teams on the face of the planet.  Teams in this 4-leg series are expected to compete for an estimated purse of $3,000,000 dollars in 2017. $2.6 Million was awarded last season. However, the most coveted award – The Crest – doesn’t come in the form of a cash prize.

The Crest represents the pinnacle of tournament sailfishing. It is viewed as the highest accolade bestowed upon a team.  Presented in jacket form, competitors must emerge as the most dominant among an elite field in order to don this coat of arms.  Much like Nascar’s ‘Sprint Cup’, teams accumulate points based on where they finish in each leg of the series.  Perform at a high level and do it often.  That is what it takes to claim the Crest and the jacket.
