Wales Welsh National Oyster Opening Champs 2011

The annual Welsh National Oyster Opening Championships are calling for entrants to this quirky and challenging competition.

The winner will receive £200 and a trophy, with a £100 going to the runner-up.

The competition is open to entrants throughout the UK, and will take place on August Bank Holiday Monday, August 29, as part of the hugely popular British Fish Craft Championships to be held in Cardiff Bay (August 27-29).

Contestants will be asked to show their skill and dexterity in opening 24 oysters in as fast a time as possible.

But the judging isn’t just about speed, points are awarded - or lost - if the presentation is poor, or if segments of shell remain on the presentation board.

Reigning Welsh National Oyster Opening champion is veteran fishmonger, Mike Crates, 54, who won over the crowd with his endearing personality when he became runner-up in the British Fish Craft Championships last year - for the 19th time.

“It was great to win the Welsh Oyster Opening Championship, and to take some silverware home with me afterall,” he said.

“The audience was great, and competing in front of the home crowd gave me a fantastic buzz.”

*Anyone wishing to enter the Welsh Oyster Opening Championship should call 01376 571 391, or email for an entry form. Otherwise visit the web site at Entrants must be over 18.

*The three-day British Fish Craft Championships 2011 will be the centrepiece of an action-packed August Bank Holiday Harbour Festival weekend in Cardiff Bay (August 27-29).
