Charleston Race Week Announcement

J/111s sailing at Charleston Race Week (Charleston, SC)- Here’s the formula: take three days of intense action on the water. Mix in four evenings of rollicking beachside parties. Then add top-flight race management and one of the best venues in the sport and you’ve got an event worth attending. That’s Sperry Charleston Race Week that is running from April 20th to 23rd.

“Serious racing. Serious fun.” That’s the new tagline for this mega-regatta. And anyone who’s raced here in the last decade will tell you the competition is tough to beat, the race courses are challenging and the shoreside festivities are unmatched. We call it Southern hospitality at its best.

J/88s sailing Charleston Race WeekCharleston Race Week has become mecca for trailerable one-designs 19 feet or larger. (Over 65 J/70s in 2016, not to mention a 17-strong J/24 class.) But we also attract a healthy contingent of offshore racers competing under PHRF and ORC formats, like J/88s, J/111s, and J/122s! And, we offer a unique Pursuit Class for those who prefer a more extended course format.

To keep things interesting, we throw in an engaging mix of pre- and post-race debriefs by some of the top experts in the sport. So competitors don’t just enjoy top-notch racing, but also great opportunities to enhance their knowledge and skills, too.

To top it all off, Charleston Race Week takes place in the No. 1 destination city in the world (according to the readers of Travel & Leisure magazine). When you’re not on the water getting your adrenaline fix or on the beach reveling, there’s so much to do in Charleston. So come join us for 2017 (April 20-23) and help make this the best year yet. (And remember, the early registration discount ends January 31.)  Learn more about Charleston Race Week and sailing information here.
