IYAC in Newport Wins Favourite Yachting Bar Contest 2011

The crew at Wight Vodka and Scuttlebutt Europe teamed up yet again to determine the yachting fraternity’s favourite bar the world over.  Wight Vodka has awarded the IYAC in Newport the ‘first in class’ prize for their 2011 favourite yachting bar contest. 

 

IYAC came out on top due to the massive volume of votes received by their faithful patrons and their passionate submissions in the early rounds. IYAC join previous winners of the contest, Soggy Dollar in the BVI who won 2010’s contest and the Peter Café Sport in the Azores who claimed the podium in 2009. 

 

This year’s contest was tight between the winner and the runners-up, including the Bitter End Yacht Club in the BVI, the Royal Varuna Yacht Club in Pattaya, Thailand and the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club

 

Ritu Manocha, owner of 50°North, the company behind Wight Vodka, said “I’m so glad that IYAC won this year’s competition! A few of the Wight Vodka team members spend their time on and off the water around Newport and Block Island, and with the history of the America’s Cup being battled out for so many decades in those Rhode Island waters, it’s fitting that IYAC is crowned as the 2011 worldwide favourite yachting bar. They will receive a trophy and bottle of Wight to celebrate their win, and if you find yourself in Newport you must make your way to Thames Street and enjoy a few cocktails while spinning a few tales at IYAC!”
