We encouraging members and competitors to make a direct donation to Canteen, using the Donate Now page, and then forward notice of their donation to, identifying a competitor from whom the donation came. In addition to the normal race results and prizes, an additional Rum prize will be awarded to Yachts Div1, Yachts Div2 and Lasers pursuit race according to the Rum Adjusted results.   The Rum Adjusted results apply only to the boats for which a donation is recorded and every $20 donated will give a bonus time to a boat's finish.
