Lahaina Yacht Club

In 1965, at the old Anchor Cove on Front St, a small group of sailors got to drinking & talking (as sailors will) and the Lahaina Yacht Club was born. Soon a fleet of sunfish were purchased and races were taking place off of the beach next to the Lahaina Broiler. In 1967 an all-volunteer group of LYC members took a building (an old laundry) that was tumbling into the ocean and built the clubhouse at 835 Front St. There have been several renovations over the years most of the work being done by members. LYC is host to two major events. Annually we hold the Lahaina Jackpot Fishing Tournament where we have had as many as 150 boats competing for more than $20,000. Bi-annually we host the finish of the Vic-Maui Race, known around the Pacific as having the best dock parties for each yacht that completes the race.

Please visit the Lahaina Yacht Club web site for more information about the club.

Mount Gay Rum

Mount Gay Rum is the product of 310 years of knowledge, experience and refinement. 

The muddled rum drinks of the 18th century were the beginning of the modern cocktail. Tavern bartenders of the time had to be quite creative, using what fresh fruits, sours, and spices were available to make the fiery bite of early rum palatable. Today, the refinement of rum cocktail culture has evolved into a nuanced skill that uses the specific flavour profiles of high-quality Mount Gay Rums to lead the creation of new drink recipes. Blending with the complex character Mount Gay Rums is nothing short of a fine art.

Sailing vessels carried exotic trade from the colonies and introduced Caribbean flavors to Europe and the Americas. This period of shipping was an important part of Mount Gay’s Heritage. For centuries ships were the only way by which Barbadian sugar and Mount Gay Rum could meet global demand. Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados is one of the oldest seaports in the Caribbean and the port from which Mount Gay Rum sailed into the glasses and gullets of the world.
