2024 Schooner Wharf Knot & Shot Competition
Key West wouldn’t be Key West without sailors and Schooner Wharf Bar, and sailors wouldn’t be sailors without rum and ropes!
Watch what happens when all four of them combine on the docks at Schooner Wharf Bar, your After Sail Headquarters! Sailors and any interested challengers will frustrate themselves and entertain the crowd as they race to tie a bowline and lasso a piling. But add a shot of Mt. Gay Rum and an icy cold beer to the contest and a good time is inevitable. Entrants stand in front of an ice luge and swallow an icy shot of Mt. Gay that is poured from the top. They then have to tie a bowline and use it to lasso a piling that is on wheels, several feet away. The sailor then pulls the piling to him or her and picks up a cold beer, that is sitting on the base of the piling. They then drink the beer and turn the supposedly empty bottle upside down on their head.
Our Knot & Shot Competition is a fun and good natured race against the clock and other sailors.
Prizes will be given for the best times, and winners can receive great prizes from Harken yacht equipment, Sailing Services, Schooner Wharf Bar gift certificates and plenty of Mt. Gay Rum and Mount Gay XO. Spectators can enjoy the laughs and drinks while they share sailing stories with local sailors.
