Charleston Race Week

Report by Brian Hayes

North Sails powered teams won 7 out of the 8 one-design classes!


The organizers of the 2016 Sperry Charleston Race Week gave participants top notch racing in challenging tides and wind conditions that ran from medium-light to heavy breeze this past weekend. The on-the-water committee work and sailing conditions may only have been bested by the unequaled shoreside festivities each night on the beach, which gave everyone a chance to reconnect with old friends and make new ones while enjoying the famous Charleston southern hospitality.

After three days featuring eight inshore one-design classes including J/22, J/24, J/70, Viper 640, Melges 20, Melges 24 and VX One. North Sails One Design is proud to announce that North Sails clients earned 20 of the 24 podium positions in the inshore one-design fleets including class wins in 7 of the 8 classes.

The North Sails One Design team is available to help you achieve your sailing goals with sound advice, tuning tips or any assistance you may need. One-design sailing is all we do! Don't hesitate to call.
