2012 Charleston Race Week - Sunday sailing

The third and final day of racing for the 2012 Sperry Topsider Charleston Race Week (CRW) was greeted with overcast skies, moderate drizzle and very light winds. The Offshore course reported barely 5 knots of wind, which makes it hard to keep the bigger boats moving along. With only two races scheduled for Sunday racing at CRW, its hard to talk about postponing any races due to light winds. The Charleston Harbor looked equally calm on Sunday morning, and the sun refused to break through the cloud cover. Saturday's shoreside event at Charleston Harbor Marina involved a special multimedia presentation about the America's Cup trophy and the cup was on display for the sailors to view. Sunday's shore side event begins with a beach party at 2 p.m. with the awards ceremony slated for 4 p.m.
