2013 Charleston Race Week - Day Three / Awards

TeamWork Racing collected the most honors at the 2013 CRW

Sunday racing at the 2013 Charleston Race Week was almost completely canceled due to a small craft advisory and high winds gusting above 30 miles per hour. One race was completed on Sunday, but in all other categories, the leaders after Saturday's races were determined to be the winers. An awards ceremony at the Charleston Harbor Resort always serves to cap off CRW and the final results can be found here. Cloudy weather continued Sunday afternoon during the awards that saw plenty of the winning sailors collecting hardware, Gosling's rum and Sperry shoes. There is a vibe after each Charleston Race Week that says, yep we competed on the water and now we celebrate the sport of sailing. I can't remember a year with so few protests, which no doubt reflects on the caliber of sailor that is attracted to the Holy City for this annual springtime regatta.
