I arrived with three minutes to go and was quite surprised at how empty the coastline was! It would seem that less people are taking part in it nowadays whether thats because most people have won the tournament or perhaps given up. Once the tournament started I thought it was a bit weird that no fishing pools were appearing on my mini-map and then I realised that I hadn't ever got the Weather-Beatne Journal and therefore the Find Fish ability. Fortuntely the fishing gods had seen my plight and rewarded me with an Iron Bound Trunk, containing the journal, on my second cast.
Following this I went down to the barbican where there was a pirate festival going on with lots of little events in the sun etc. All-in-all a pretty successful and rather nautical day so far.
