THE Easter J/24 Regatta Preview

J/24's sailing downwind
(Columbia, SC)- Sailed in J/24s since 1987, THE Easter Regatta has been one of the world’s most popular and enduring J/24 events. It offers an excellent mix of shore side events and world-class competition. Whether your’s is an amateur team attending your first regatta or a professional team contending for the top prize, you will find something that impels you to return year after year!

The Columbia Sailing Club offers first-class facilities. Everyone will appreciate the new Bath House at the beach and camping area, especially the campers! Their “never-leave-the-club” option offers free camping (first-come, first-served), meals every day, and parties galore! The beautiful peninsula and gorgeous beach provides an unparalleled camping experience.

Most importantly, the down-home southern hospitality ties everything together. This is the tradition that competitors have come to know and love.

Answering that “call to duty” for J/24 sailors are at least thirteen teams from across the cosmos of the J/24 universe.  Notable characters include such teams like Mike Palazzo’s JO MAMMA from Charleston YC; Steve Wood’s TASMANIAN DEVIL from Sail Newport, RI; Paul Abdullah’s TEAM TARHEEL from Jacksonville, FL; Corey Huseby’s BORK! BORK! BORK! from St Paul, MN; Rob Baldwin’s PIG from Central, SC; and Crisp McDonald’s LEVEL PELICAN from Charleston, SC.   Follow the J/24 Easter Regatta on Facebook  For more J/24 Easter Regatta sailing information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
