Win a trip to the world’s longest-running and most prestigious sailing regattas, Cowes Week, with Mount Gay rum!

UPDATE: We have our winner! Congratulations to Christopher Strassheim!

On the Isle of Wight, in the town of Cowes, is a sailing regatta with a rich history that dates back to 1826. What was initially a race for local yachts, Cowes Week is now a major international sailing event that is not only about the racing but also a vibrant social scene. It’s a festival-like celebration with numerous entertainment from fireworks to live music and more.

Fact: rum tastes better on a boat. Well, we can’t actually verify that, but we’re pretty sure. But YOU could fact check for us if you win this competition!


Including, of course, food and drink stalls. And what better drink is there to salute the sailors from the shore than with rum, the drink of the seas. Mount Gay Rum would be a perfectly apt choice, particularly as they could be sending you to Cowes Week this year.

The full prize includes: return travel for two people from the United Kingdom to the Isle of Wight in order to participate at Cowes Week; overnight accommodation; the RIB experience from there over to Cowes; complimentary cocktails from H Van Bar on Cowes shore; and a complimentary lunch at a local restaurant, the Lobster Shack (with Telmont Champagne on arrival). This is for outward travel 29th July returning 30th July, and dates are not changeable.
