Yachting’s Favorite Bar, 2011

Wight Vodka and Scuttlebutt Europe joined forces to find out which watering hole yacht crew the world over held in top regard in 2011. After much deliberation and, we’re sure, quite a few drinks, the winner was announced on January 1, 2012. IYAC in Newport, Rhode Island, was awarded the “First in Class” prize.

Runner’s up for the title this year included the Bitter End Yacht Club in the BVI, the Royal Varuna Yacht Club in Parraya, Thailand, The Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, Salty Mike’s in Charlestown, South Carolina, and the list goes on….
Voters weighed in with their comments about their favorite bars. Below is a small sample of the reasons why IYAC claimed the title:
“This place is known as the drinking bar with a yachting problem.”
“The bar supports the club…and vice versa!”
“You never know if you’re going to see someone in a wedding dress or a swimsuit.”
“The only pub where you find the rock stars, pro sailors and keen weekenders mixing it up together.”
“It’s a short walk for drinks after sailing.”
Which yachtie bar earns your vote for favorite and why?
