Sperry Charleston Race Week Celebrates 25 Years!
It's the beginning of a New Year, and we wish you all the best in 2020! We also invite you to join us for our 25th anniversary celebration April 23-26.
This year, we expect a record number of boats – upwards of 300 – to be on the line. The event will serve double duty as the ORC North American Trophy regatta, which we expect will bolster the large boat turnout. What's more, the Melges 24 World Championship, held a week later, is pulling in many international boats for training. All this adds up to epic competition and fun! You can also expect better than ever post-race events, live reports on the races, post-race debriefs aided by aerial videos and graphics on the beachfront jumbotron, great parties, a Pro-Am event, and an engaging multimedia presentation on the upcoming America's Cup.
Once again, we are planning on four inshore courses, a Pursuit offshore course, and a Hybrid Pursuit course. We also strive to make the logistics easier and attendance as affordable as possible. Make sure to get your reservations in for dockage at the marina and make sure to get your launch and haul organized. There are plenty of resources available on the website under logistics.
We appreciate your past support of this event and want you to know that every year our steering committee examines trends in the sport and listens to your comments and then works hard to make good on our tagline "a regatta unlike any other."
We truly appreciate our sponsors and volunteers who are really stepping up to make sure the 25th edition of Sperry Charleston Race Week is the one not to miss – all at the "best venue in the sport" in America's No. 1 destination city! Stay tuned to our Facebook page and this website for updates. And, be sure to register by January 31st to save $100.00 on your entry fee. As always, don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns - we are here to serve you!
We look forward to seeing you in April!
All the best,
Sperry Charleston Race Week
