Thursday April 14 marks the beginning of the 2011 Charleston Race Week put on by the S.C. Maritime Organization. Considered one of the largest and best regattas along the East Coast, the Charleston Harbor Marina will host the four-day event which culminates with an awards ceremony on Sunday afternoon after morning sailing.
Also, there is much excitement in the Holy City about the Velux 5 Oceans fleet that is en route now to Charleston, including Brad Van Liew. Sailing conditions have slowed down for his Le Pingouin here lately and here is his latest blog entry from April 12.
