Energy drink marketers are way smarter than I. After all, in the last 10 years they’ve invented new and novel ways to get folks to pay $7 billion more for caffeine. It’s the equivalent of re positioning the hot-dog as la cuisine gastronomique. Genius.

 

But this time, I think they’re really on to something. They might even Save Sailing!

 

Look around. Sailing is changing. It’s getting faster and way more fun for the pros. So the pros need helmets. And helmets need logos. Any savvy marketer will tell you those logos should reflect the target audience’s grandest aspirations. For example, everyone knows that NFL fans prefer tasteless beer and pizza.

 

What an honor it is for sailors to have caught the attention of said brilliant energy drink marketers, even in our advanced age. We’re no longer lowly connoisseurs of platinum timepieces and French champagne. No, thankfully, we sailors have just been promoted to the gas station drink cooler.

 

It’s a new day for sailing. Shed the pretension. Blue blood be damned. Let’s get real about our awesome sport. It’s extreme. It’s in yer face. It’s for guys with huge trucks.

Well if Red Bull wants to partner up with Mount Gay and start providing Red Bull and rum at regatta parties, I can't say I would be opposed.

When sailing I only drink Champagne....or really good Carneros sparkling wine. The 18k Rolex yachtmaster is my cheap sailing watch. The 4ksb crowd can do as they please.

The Health Risks Of Energy Drinks

 

Well it's a good thing I don't have a heart arrhythmia and the common sense to understand what moderation is. There is no more caffeine in an energy drink than there is in a properly brewed cup of coffee.

 

The thing with energy drinks is that they are also loaded with sugar, then again so is everything else that people tend to mix with Mount Gay.

Health risks and all that fancy shit be damned. Rolex can suck it. Your little sister drinks champagne.

 

Are new sponsors advancing our sport by increasing exposure/marketability/interest?

 

Or getting a brand new club started somewhere?

 

Getting someone back involved with racing or just sailing?

 

Or getting a local sailing club (in KENTUCKY no less!!!) half a dozen new members?

 

Then who gives A SHIT if the fucking Dollar Store is sponsoring a boat? Now pass me the Bourbon and get the boats in the water, lets race bitches!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Read the black thingies on the page not the white.

Nobody said anything was wrong with any type of sponsoring by any company.

Now if it was one of those tobacco companies....

Just don't mention the club furniture he had to replace.

It's a wonder SCYC keeps inviting us back what with dips in the pool at 0400, busting up the place, copius consumption of liquor and the behavior that ensues, fleeing moments before the cops arrive, trying to steal other competitor's women on the launch ride back out to the boat...and this is the crap we remember doing!
