Event Director Randy Draftz is very hands on with Charleston Race Week from the Skipper's Meeting on Thursday night all the way through to the Sunday awards. Each night of the CRW is a one of a kind beach party on the grounds of the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina with live music, a food buffet and of course the Dark 'N' Stormy refreshments. Special racing presentations by veteran tacticians accent each night. That's right, when this crowd isn't on the water sailing, they are watching the big screen on the beach about how to race faster!!

CRW is entering its third year in the Clean Regattas Program, and is 'Going Blue.' Some of the commitments for this year include using electric golf carts to transport competitors from the outlying parking lots to the Regatta Village. Limiting the dependance on plastic water bottles is stressed with lots of drinking water cooler stations where participants are free to fill up a renewable container, like a camelback bottle. Even the use of biodegradable drinking cups is in use, and these measures are likely to increase over time.
