We would like to welcome Captain Morgan Rum as the naming rights sponsor for the upcoming Captain Morgans 12ft Skiff Australian Championships.
Captain Morgan is a very complementary fit for the class and we are very excited to have them on board for the event.
The 6 race event will be held over the Easter long weekend at the Sydney Flying Squadron in Kirribilli. The event will utilise a combination of harbour and laid courses.
A reminder to participants that entries are closing very soon (18th March). Entries are filling up quick, so avoid the late fee and enter now. Early entries will also receive 2 free raffle tickets to go in the draw to win several bottles of Captain Morgans Rum.
Entries received so far include all the top NSW boats, and a very strong contingent from Queensland – the largest fleet to hit NSW for many years.
Good Friday will see the inaugural Ladies Day picnic and Friday evening Captain Morgans Rum Party. Both events are open to all friends and family of the class. We encourage all to come down, watch some sailing and have a rum, or two. More details will be posted on Facebook and the website in the lead up to the event.
There will be a lot of focus on the handicap honours at this years Championships. Thanks to Captain Morgans, the leading handicap boats will walk away with a generous supply of the Captains finest.
