An individual of diverse talents and interests, Russell “Rusty” Rahm is the chief executive officer of Subscription Ink, the subscription sales provider, and a partner in the publishing organization Subdirect. Rusty Rahm is also active in the boating world, as the owner of Wake Effects, a boat equipment retailer, and as a powerboat racer with Team Wake Effects 03.

Along with his Wake Effects 03 teammate Jeff Harris, Mr. Rahm won the Triple Crown of powerboat races in 2016. Only a few other powerboat racers have ever before accomplished this exceptional feat.

After securing victories at both the National Championships and the Florida Circuit earlier in the year, Team Wake Effects 03 won the 2016 35th Annual Super Boat International Offshore World Championships in Key West, Florida, the third leg of the coveted Triple Crown. Competing against 42 other boats in this three-day race, Wake Effects 03 experienced early difficulties when its twin-engine MTI boat fell prey to mechanical problems on day one.

However, the team ultimately rose to victory from a sixth-place position with Mr. Rahm driving and Mr. Harris on the throttle. Wake Effects 03 came from behind to win after the leader, CMS Offshore Racing, succumbed to a faulty sensor in the eighth lap of the race.
