Throwing the Line

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 Race Headquarters, every night at 8:00 p.m. during the yacht races.

Nightly from Jan 19-23, 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 a Kalik Beer to the contest and a goodtime 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 Kalik 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.

During a week of heated race competition, Knot&Shot 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 polarized sunglasses from Harken yacht equipment, great gifts from West Marine, Piper-Heidsieck, champagne, Kalik beer and plenty of Mount Gay Rum.

In 2004 the locals took first place, Captain Dave of the Schooner Western Union had the fastest time of 7.3 seconds. When asked if he had any advice to dispense, his reply was “Practice, Practice, Practice.” He is also looking forward to competing against all the challengers from yachting race week to retain his title!

Spectators can enjoy the chance to share stories and drinks with the yacht racers, who have come from all over the country for race week. Don't miss the chance to stroll along the docks and get an up-close peek at one of the racing fleets, which will be docked at the Schooner Wharf fall week.
