After four of the five Bahamas Billfish Championship tournaments, the overall champion title was within reach of eight of the 91 participating teams. After winning Leg #2 and keeping the pressure on throughout the series, Barry Weshnak and his crew on the Viking 52 Miss Annie went into the final tournament in Fourth Place Overall.

Although the Miss Annie released three blue marlin and a white to win the individual tournament, it wasn’t enough to clinch the series. Miss Annie finished in Second Place Overall based on time, which improved upon their Third Place Overall finish in the 2007 BBC series. “I am delighted that we have had two successful years fishing the BBC,” said Barry. “I am already looking forward to the 2009 series because I believe that the third time is the charm.”
