Captain Morgan seeking ‘crews’ to the Caribbean

A giant bottle landed on Dublin’s Sandymount Strand recently with a message from Captain Morgan encouraging people to enter The Captain’s Island challenge, a buccaneering contest where a legendary Caribbean adventure and a €15,000 share of his bounty is at stake for a team of friends from Ireland.

Captain Morgan, along with The Captain’s Island official reporter and actress Mena Suvari, has placed a video message on his Irish Facebook page laying out the challenges that could see an Irish crew going to The Captain’s Island in the Caribbean from 9th to the 14th October and battling it out against 13 other countries for a share of €15,000.  

However not everyone can get to The Captain’s Island and challenge for the bounty available. The Captain seeks potential crew members from Ireland who can display the sort of traits befitting of a Captain – leadership, camaraderie, bravado (without recklessness), clever thinking and determination – to earn a place on his Island. Different challenges are to be posted through Captain Morgan’s Facebook page – www.facebook.com/CaptainMorganIreland  – and on completion of each challenge the potential crew members will earn a ‘key’.  

Keys are also available through other means such as promotional packs in supermarkets and off-licences, in 100 participating bars nationwide and at events and secret locations, but to be in consideration for a place on The Captain’s Island, crew members will need to have collected five keys in total.

Mena Suvari will be on hand as Captain Morgan’s official reporter, interviewing crew members and commentating on their progress as they compete in a series of physical and mental challenges for the Captain’s bounty.

The closing date for crews to sign up and collect five keys is 18th September 2011. Please see www.facebook.com/CaptainMorganIreland for full Terms and Conditions for The Captain’s Island.
