Charleston Race Week Celebrates 20 Years

Mocka Jumbies and Rum...

Open to all sailboats from 19 to 80 feet in length, Charleston Race Week has become the largest regatta on the East Coast over the past 20 years. Multiple inshore and offshore courses are navigated for three consecutive days in April, and the Charleston Harbor Marina is home to all the onshore action.

A positive attitude helped buoy the 2015 Race Week since the event was somewhat weather-challenged with light winds on days one and three, and most of day two canceled due to no wind. All of which meant day three was pivotal when deciding the winners, including the Melges 20 National Championships.

Break Time in Luxurious Palmetto Bluff

Though sailboats from Europe, Mexico and Canada were present, the annual Palmetto Cup award went to the Charleston-based J/122 Teamwork. Owner Robin Team sails with a crew largely made up of his own family and  perennially supports Race Week. Continuing with the family theme, Team Dog Party from Canada sails with three brothers as a part of their 7-man crew on their J/88 boat. For more information visit www.CharlestonRaceWeek.com.
