Charleston: a wonderful place to completely turn off before turning onto some of the nation’s most challenging sailing conditions, to get excited for the upcoming sailing season, see your friends, escape the cold, and simply have a great time, all at Charleston Race Week. And, if you don’t win the regatta, there are always four nights of post racing parties on the USS Yorktown. The 28th edition of the “regatta like no other” came through for some 180 boats racing in 16 classes, with multiple lead changes determining final places right up until the last race. In the J/105 fleet, the talented team Deja Voodoo owned and skippered by Bill Zartler took four bullets and a second to take first—eight points ahead of second place winner Spectacle, owned and helmed by Joe Pitcavage. “It was wonderful racing for the first time in the J/105 at CRW, flat water and 15 knots of breeze every day – it can’t get any better than that,” said Zartler. “We dealt with a lot of current, so we learned how to deal with those angles, it was a great start to the season!” For event details:
