Sperry Charleston Race Week Gears Up For Another Exciting Edition
By Bill Wagner
Cedric Lewis had never competed in Sperry Charleston Race Week before last year. The Annapolis resident always heard great things about the regatta and therefore jumped at the chance to crew for John Potter in the VX One class.
Potter and Lewis wound up winning, but success on the race course was just part of why the Sperry Charleston Race Week newcomer came away mightily impressed. Lewis, co-owner of a J/105, has attended similar events in the past and knew what a race week should be about.
“It’s definitely a five-star event. The Charleston Race Week folks really have their act together,” Lewis said. “I love the sailing venue and the hospitality is off the charts. This regatta offers tremendous value for the money.”
That has been the clear consensus among sailboat racers throughout the country, who return to Sperry Charleston Race Week year after year because the event consistently delivers on all fronts.
