Another year, another countdown to America’s funnest overall regatta, and we welcome back Charleston Race Week to the SA family. With the rebounding Melges 24, the exploding J/70, the exciting HPR class, and continually growing big boat racing of all levels, it’s hard to beat Charleston in April. Here are a couple of words from our pal Randy Draftz, the wizard moving the handles around for the event.
“You’ve still got a couple of days to save $50 on your registration to America’s biggest regatta (and the biggest beach party in sailing), but you have to ACT FAST! After January 31, the Early Discount expires, so register now. Inshore courses are expected to reach capacity early, so late entries may be excluded in the larger inshore one-design classes. As of January 28, there are already 29 J/70s registered. And remember; only entries that are fully paid are considered registered. You can check out exactly who’s already signed up here, and the link to register is right here. Crew Board is here.”
