Regatta Coverage #Photography
It’s that time of year again when we head to Charleston for the ever growing Charleston Race Week. Last year, we were demo sailing the J/70 out and about on the race course and this year there are 56 registered to be on the starting line!!! How awesome is that? And on top of an extremely strong J/70 fleet, are the Melges 24, Melges 20 and Viper 640 fleets with 37, 34 and 37 teams as well. No question about it, that this will be another excellent event with everyone coming together for lots of racing in beautiful Charleston.
We’re here again working with our regular teams and some new ones from the J/70 fleet. We have some great new products and covers for J/70 teams and the Sail22 Support Trailer is fully stocked to service any of your needs. We have pre-orders ready for pick-up and will be based at Patriot’s Point starting on Wednesday. As always, Harry, our director of marketing will be on site for greeting clients. On behalf of the whole Sail22 team, we’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
Here are a few images from Bacardi Miami Race Week to get you excited about the upcoming racing this week. I’ve been a bit swamped and haven’t had a chance to get the images from Miami uploaded yet, but there are some great ones. Enjoy!
