Tight competition at Oistins
THE OISTINS FISH Festival culminated today with a new fish boning queen being crowned.
Sharon Atherley-Yarde dethroned last year’s winner Jacqueline Norgrove in a closely contested match.
Each contestant was adjudged to have one flaw each and so the winner was decided through time, with Atherley-Yarde finishing first in the LIME National Fish Boning Competition followed by Norgrove, and third place contestant Shena Squires.
In the dolphin skinning competition, Darius Hope came out on top, closely followed by perennial contestants Fabian Doughty and Damian Warner.
This year, the man who has the same nickname as the competition itself, Tyrone “Dolphin” Shorey decided to opt out of the event he has won more than any other in order to “give someone else a chance”. He was a judge in the fish boning competition instead. (CA)
