The 2014 Rum Challenge Race will be hosted and organized by the Essex Yacht Club (EYC) and sponsored by Gosling\'sŪ Rum. It is an Eastern Connecticut Sailing Association sanctioned event and one of the five qualifying races for the Long Sand Shoal Cup. This year the PRO will be the Mudheads.
The Rum Challenge Race is long known for competitive Racing and some seriously enjoyable post-event festivities thanks to Gosling\'sŪ and EYC\'s executive chef, Michael Stafford.
For those of you who have participated before, you know it is both a challenging race and a very fun evening. For those of you who haven\'t participated, you have a great experience waiting you.
2014 Rum Challenge Big Boat Race was canceled due to lack of wind.
The 2014 Essex Rum Challenge T-shirt provides a unique keepsake for you and your crew to remember this fun and memorable event. A limited number of shirts will be available for sale at the Awards Party but to avoid disappointment please pre-order your shirts with your race entry using the order form here.
