Peter Martell, owner of the Wesley Hotel which served as unofficial headquarters of the Oak Bluffs Monster Shark Tournament, said this week that tournament organizer Steve James will move the event to Newport, Rhode Island, next summer.

Mr. Martell told The Times on Wednesday that Mr. James confirmed the move in a phone call Tuesday night. Mr. James is president of the Boston Big Game Fishing Club, sponsor of the tournament for the past 27 years, and also of several other fishing events.
