2018 Charleston Race Week - Sailing Results

Sailboat Racing on Saturday afternoon
From the Charleston Race Week PR team:
Veteran skipper Brian Porter and the Full Throttle team excelled in the heavy air conditions on Thursday and Friday en route to victory in the Melges 24 class, second-largest of the regatta with 31 entries. Andy Burdick served as tactician for Porter, who won four of eight races and placed second or third in three others in totaling 11 points – 13 better than Monsoon (Bruce Ayres, Newport Beach, CA).

“Whenever I come to these regattas my primary goal is to just sail well. I’m real happy with how we performed,” said Porter, who hails from Fontana, WI. “My crew was just flawless and I can’t compliment them strongly enough. My job is really easy when everything goes so smoothly with the boat.”
Porter was particularly happy to have his son as part of the team. RJ Porter, a junior member of the College of Charleston sailing team, helped his father capture Sperry Charleston Race Week for the first time in over a decade.
“Charleston is awfully hard to beat for a big sailing regatta. There is no better venue for food and overall hospitality,” Porter said. “We love this town and it sure was a real fun time."
