With just a month to go until the start of the 2009 Melges 24 World Championship, being hosted by Eastport Yacht Club, Annapolis, from 23-31 October, both the sponsors and competitors are hard at work preparing for the event.
Pusser’s Rum is a regular sponsor of International Melges 24 events and the organisers are delighted to confirm that Pusser’s will be the Official Rum of the 2009 Melges 24 World Championship. Pusser’s will host the mid-week Pusser’s Painkiller Party, held at the Annapolis Marriott Waterfront, as well as providing their legendary Pusser’s Painkiller cocktails for the daily post racing gatherings and sponsoring the Pusser’s WipeOut Of The Day competition in which the best broach/wipeout of the day will receive a special Pusser’s prize!
‘Once again, it’s good to see one old and great tradition combine forces with a great but relatively new tradition – the Melges 24 Worlds, ‘ said Charles Tobias, Chairman of Pusser’s. ‘We’re looking forward to easing some after-race pain with our infamous Pusser’s Painkillers. I suppose this will be particularly meaningful to the recipients of the ‘Pusser’s Wipeout of the day award’.’
