Charleston Race Week in mid-April is the fastest growing regatta in the country, combining inshore and offshore competition. I found out about this event from another sailor’s T-Shirt at the Bitter End Pro-Am Regatta.
My brother, who also sails, lives in Charleston.
Even when you’re not attending Race Week events, Charleston, South Carolina offers so much to do - great restaurants, beautiful architecture, relaxing beaches. The Race Week site is full of useful recommendations, like hotels and lots of resources for that whole region.
