Portsmouth, Rhode Island, USA

US SAILING and Mount Gay Rum, Official Rum of US SAILING, have announced the launch of the Mount Gay Rum Speaker Series. The grassroots, educational series will deliver high quality seminars to sailors nationwide and will be hosted by select sailing organizations and yacht clubs.
The 2005 Speaker Series will feature as many as ten events with subjects that range from 'Understanding the new racing rules' to 'An inside look at the Olympic Games.' The racing rules seminars will allow sailors to interact directly with prominent experts like Dave PERRY, Butch ULMER and Dick ROSE in discussing the new ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing 2005-2008 which are effective from 1 January 2005.

The Olympic-themed events will feature Athens medallists like Kevin BURNHAM (Gold medal, 470 class) who will share a first-hand perspective on his Olympic experiences, from training to the podium.

The 2005 season of the Mount Gay Rum Speaker Series kicks off on January and will run through April. Markets currently on the schedule include:

Pascagoula, Miss.
Blue Point, N.Y.
Seattle, Wash.
Houston, TX
Chicago, Ill.
Boston, Mass,
San Francisco, Calif.
Westport, Conn.

The Mount Gay Rum Speaker Series are part of a unique partnership between US SAILING and Mount Gay Rum. Mount Gay Rum became the Official Rum of US SAILING in early 2004 and the partnership centers around US SAILING's adult sailing programs and events.
