A giant bottle landed on Sandymount Strand, Dublin during August 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 stunning actress Mena Suvari, has left a video message on his Irish Facebook page laying out the challenges that could see an Irish crew going to The Captain’s Island (from 9 – 14 October) in the Caribbean 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. Captain Morgan is looking for 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 will 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 a variety of other ways including on promotional packs in supermarkets and off-licenses, in bars, at events and other 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.
The contest is open now to everyone in the island of Ireland above legal purchase age and challenges conducted via Facebook require a fun-loving buccaneer who has a passion for adventure, creativity and a winning spirit. The closing date for crews to sign up and collect five keys is 18 September. See www.facebook.com/CaptainMorganIreland for full terms and conditions for The Captain’s Island.
