As Event Director of the largest sailing regatta in the Western Hemisphere, Charleston Race Week’s Randy Draftz has become one of the ‘go-to’ people in sailing if you’re looking for information on any aspect of running a sailboat event.
Learn the crazy chain of events that led Randy to this current role and the strange reasons Randy is actually one of the pioneers of sailing and the web, including the rise and fall of Sailnet (in the 90s, ancient history!). We don’t shy away from the tough subjects, either – women still excluded from Yacht Club membership in Chucktown, conflict between sponsor goals, yacht club sensibilities, and the future of the sport, and loads of stories about the ‘good ol’ days’ of yacht racing from this likeable and hardworking icon of modern race administration.
More to come!
