Billfish boated

After two days of tag and release, the first billfish and ahi were boated in the 41st Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament yesterday.

The Indiana Jones Tokyo Fishing Club took over first place with 461 points after hauling in a 361-pound marlin.

The Pajara Valley Game Fish Club is in second with 300 points, and also leads the Ahi Division.

The tournament concludes with fishing today off of Kailua-Kona.

Australia extends lead

Australia extended its lead over closest rival New Zealand in the Kenwood Cup sailing standings after the 55-mile race from Kaneohe to Waikiki and back yesterday.

The race was the fifth of the 10-race series.

The class leaders are Esmerelda (A), Karasu (B), Samba Pa Ti, (C) and Smile (D).

The next races --the triangle and windward/leeward courses off Waikiki -- will be held tomorrow.

Today, a fun Plywood Cup race off Waikiki is scheduled. That's plywood -- literally. Sailors and businessmen will combine to build makeshift boats in two hours before sailing --or sinking.
