Charleston Race Week - 20th Anniversary in 2015

My photos from the 2015 Platinum Anniversary of Charleston Race Week

Open to all sailboats from 19 to 80-feet in length, Charleston Race Week has become the largest regatta on the East Coast over the past 20 years. Multiple inshore courses and offshore courses are navigate for three consecutive days in April, and the Charleston Harbor Marina is home to all the onshore action.

A positive attitude helped buoy the 2015 Race Week since the event was somewhat weather-challenged with light winds on Day One and Day Three, and most of Day Two being canceled due to no wind. All of which meant that Day Three was pivotal when deciding the winners, including the Melges 20 National Championships.

Sailboats from Europe, Mexico and Canada were present, but for the annual Palmetto Cup award the Charleston-based J/122 Teamwork was the winner. Owner Robin Team sails with a crew largely made up of his own family and are perennial supports of Race Week. Continuing with the family theme, Team Dog Party from Canada sails with three brothers as a part of their 7-man crew on their J-88 boat. For more information visit the Internet at
