South Carolina Spring events:
Our friends in South Carolina have let us know about some great sailing down there this Spring! There are 4 back to back events during prime sailing season:
The first event will be the Windmill Harbour Regatta April 29-30. This is “distance” sailing on Calibogue Sound at Hilton Head Island, about a 45 minute drive south of Beaufort. This is an annual PHRF event but the organizers will give an independent start to fleets of 3 or more in a single class. We have a good shot at independent starts for Marshall 18s and 22s and Menger 19s; otherwise we’ll just sail with PHRF handicaps. The Host club is South Carolina Yacht Club (SCYC). NOR will be available shortly. Principal contact: Mark Newman, MNewman@SCYachtClub.com .
The second event will be an Overnight Cruise down the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) May 2-3 from Beaufort to Savannah. Departing Beaufort Yacht and Sailing Club at 10 AM, this is a relaxing cruise in a gorgeous stretch of the ICW on wide rivers and sounds at the absolutely ideal time of year. We will raft up at anchor on Bull Creek, just off Cooper River by famed Daufuskie Island for libations and dinner, anchor apart for the night, and then cruise on to Savannah the following day. We will tie up and dine May 3 at the venerable Savannah Yacht Club (SYC), marking the beginning of the third event. Principal contact: Andy Fishkind, firstname.lastname@example.org .
The third event is the 11th annual Classic Boat Rally May 3-5. This event was featured last year in the August issue of Sail magazine. Gathering will start at the Savannah Yacht Club the afternoon of May 3 with cocktails and dinner. There will be 2 consecutive races May 4 for the 23nm leg from SYC to SCYC in Windmill Harbour on Hilton Head Island, entering the harbor via a lock as the harbor is above sea level. Dinner at SCYC. The following day there will be two consecutive races from Windmill Harbour to Beaufort Yacht and Sailing club (BYSC), about 17 nm distant, arriving mid-afternoon. Principal contact, Sam “Woody” Norwood, email@example.com. NOR
The fourth event is the First Annual Lowcountry Catboat Gathering May 6-7. This is open to all catboats with plenty of camaraderie and four races scheduled over the two days just south of Beaufort Yacht and Sailing Club. We will party Saturday and dine that night with sailors that are there for District 12 Laser Championship. The NOR will be available shortly. Principal contact: Marvin Day, MarvDay@msn.com
