Columbus Street Terminal, South Carolina Ports Authority Arrangements have been made with the S.C. Ports Authority to facilitate launch/haul-out and trailer storage services at their Columbus St. Terminal during Race Week. The facilities will include vessel launch and haul, mast stepping and trailer storage. The Columbus St. Terminal is conveniently located almost directly across the Cooper River to the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina. Currently we are planning on Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday for launching and Sunday and Monday for hauling. More details will be posted as they become available. Please contact the event with your preferred launch and haul dates and times to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is important for our scheduling of cranes and staff as we want to keep everyone’s costs to a minimum. We can launch up to 40 feet LOA. Since this is under the South Carolina Ports Authority, you will need to be escorted unless you have a TWIC card so time in the launch area will be controlled. There is onsite trailer storage.
