MOUNT GAY, Sailing & The Hat PDF Print

Legend has it that MOUNT GAY RUM became the sailor’s drink because it proved the sailor’s skill. Barbados, home of MOUNT GAY, was the most difficult island from which to return to the European mainland. Sailors had to prove they had been there by bringing back a barrel of MOUNT GAY RUM.

In modern times, the link between MOUNT GAY Rum and sailors has become even stronger. One of the most cherished mementoes of the 160 regattas around the world sponsored by MOUNT GAY is the famous red cap.

MOUNT GAY continues to play a focal point in yacht racing and cruising and has become as much a part of the sailing scene as the wind.
