You appreciate Musto for bringing you top quality gear with innovative design, high tech materials, and a meticulous manufacturing process. Musto appreciates you for wearing that gear out on the water. As a thank you, Musto is giving back:
Earlier this Summer, we were hammering out details regarding a 4'x4' Musto poster board for the APS storefront with our Musto Rep Arthur. (The results of which are striking - see image above. Musto has partnered with CAMPER to sponsor Emirates Team New Zealand. Jeez, I'm wishing I was out on a boat like that right now instead of sitting at my computer!)
Shortly after the poster was printed, Arthur surprised us with great news via email. He was giving us 9 Musto gift certificates to hand out to local regatta venues that could be redeemed at our store. All we had to do was pick 3 regatta events to which we could award these 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes. (Do the math - it works out, we promise!)
Musto rocks! This random act of generosity deserves mucho praise!
It was difficult to choose an event for the prizes...as you might imagine. Ultimately, APS decided to go with the J-World Annapolis Thursday Night Races. Why? Because three types of one design boats race on Thursday nights - J/22s, J/24s, and J/80s. There's been an abundance of wind and talented sailors (70 boats!) out every Thursday night this season, and we think these devoted racers will have all sorts of warm and fuzzy feelings towards Musto when they're outfitting themselves at APS.
A total of 9 prizes will be presented to the skippers of winning boats at the Awards Ceremony at the Boatyard Bar & Grill after the finish of the Second Series Races on August 25, 2011.
If you've been racing fast on Thursday nights and have neglected to visit the J-World site (Naughty!) - you can find details here: Musto Prizes for Thursday Night Racers!
