If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, a glass of Strongbow might put the doctor out of business for at least a month.

Strongbow, premium cider

While the carbonated and golden apparence of Strongbow might deceive some as just another premium beer, this golden goodness is actually made from 50 different types of apple juice, fermented of course. The reason for these many types of apple is to achieve a taste that guarantee it’s premium quality.

Mom says drinking juice is good, so why not 50 in 1, right?

Strongbow comes in draught (check location here) as well as in bottles (best enjoy over ice)

Baby Tonga

When it comes the word premium and sports, nothing quite represent those two words closer than sailing, and it is in this prestigious sports that Strongbow partners with Baby Tonga – a Beneteau 53f5 owned by Antony Hastings.

Baby Tonga is returning this year to the Raja Muda Selangor International Regatta (RMSIR) in an attempt to capture her third victory at the race – a hattrick.

Along with Sydney to Hobart and the Rolex China Sea Race, RMSIR is the only South East Asia regatta recognised by the prestigious London based Royal Ocean Racing Club. This isn’t some small race.

So you might ask, what does Baby Tonga and the RMSIR has to do with you, my dear readers?

Well, more about that later, but first here are some facts about Baby Tonga.

  • Baby Tonga is a collaboration between Bruce Farr and Pinafarina – the Italian design company behind the likes of Ferrari and Mesarati
  • at 53 feet, she is smaller than some yachts in her class, but she is nimble and quick
  • she is built for speed, one of the fastest cruising sailboat of similar waterline length
  • she has 3 fully airconditioned cabin with 3 toilets and showers, fully equipped for a holiday on sea
  • last but not least, Baby Tonga is well stocked with Strongbow for her crew, constant supply of UK’s number one selling cider

This yacht is the epitome of power and grace, and the reason this might interest you is that you (and maybe me?) has a chance to win a cruise aboard Baby Tonga by participating in this Facebook game on Strongbow Malaysia’s facebook

Access the facebook game here, then key in your information and start playing.

The game is pretty straight forward, sail as fast as you can with arrow keys towards the finishing point, then answer 3 trivia questions for added bonus. My lousy first attempt was over one minute, but that time will be cut short by a lot, look out!

The prizes:

  • Grand Prizes x 3 – a party cruise with 2 friends on Baby Tonga and more
  • Weekly Prizes x 4 – Strongbow t-shirt & landyard
The game is on from 14th Nov till 9th Dec, 2011.

Baby Tonga Sunset

I don’t know about you, but a chance to be on this brilliant sail boat, that’s gotta be a golden opportunity that only comes very very rarely.

I’ve personally never sailed before, but Haze did (on her blog post here), and according to her it was an experience of a life time, and that wasn’t on a luxury speedster like Baby Tonga.

Imagine sitting on the deck on this beautiful boat while the sun is setting, or standing at the very front of Baby Tonga feeling the wind blow on your face while the sail boat is cutting through water. That would be an awesome feeling. I want to be on it!

Good luck folks, and bring your anti seasick pill cos we’re not gonna waste any of these awesome cider aboard Baby Tonga.
