Tuna Masters Alaçatı 2022

Tournament Program

The program has been prepared so as to vary according to probable weather conditions.

The organization committee is entitled to be flexible in the program.

The 2 days when the actual fishing will take place during the tournament will be determined according to the days which offer the most favorable weather conditions among the total four-day program.

The final program will be published on the tournament website a week before the tournament.

When necessitated by weather conditions, boats will be informed 3 days before, at the latest, and all entrance to the marina may be shifted to Thursday, September 15th; and Friday, September 16th may be accepted as the first day of the tournament.  In this case, boats that fail to enter on Thursday will suffer a day loss.
