MOTORBOATS!

If you might be out with a motorboat and can help us shuttle kiters & gear to a beach near Ft. Sumter for them to launch, please click here- Signing up doesn't commit you to be there but gets you "in the loop" so that if timing works out, you'll know what's going on. Thanks for your help.

"I love events like this that are a bit different from our regular racing and have an element of chance and huge amount of fun to them."

- 2009 Rolex Yachtsman of the year, Winner of the inaugural F2B, "His Highness", "King"- Bora Gulari

The Course

Charleston Harbor from near Ft. Sumter to the Battery


2015 additions:

- Motor boat at both starting line ends

- 5 minute flag start sequence like in sailing

- Motor boat shuttle to start line launch area


Launching

The tide will be Ebbing on race day.

For 2015 we are working to provide motorboat transport for kite boards to launch from beaches near the starting area.



Reserve your jersey number forever, for evva evva

To lay groundwork for future racing & competition, we have created a registry to establish permanent jersey ID numbers. That way this part is covered for additional events.

For 2015 racers will provide their own jersey. Reserve your number now, make your jersey later.

What else you should know


Who should race? Due to the conditions and distance of this race, ADVANCED sailing/ riding skills are required, and number of entries is limited


Safety: Several chase boats will be on hand to aid with breakdowns. The starting line will be clear of the ship channel. The Coast Guard plans to clear the way of recreational boat traffic at race time and will be on hand. Participating is your own risk and short of wind dying or gear failure you should be comfortable being independent


Spectating: If not racing, come out and watch the fastest sail-craft in Charleston blast through the Harbor. It will be exciting!

From a Boat or from the Battery will be best. Just try not to be between the racers and the finish line!


Bring your camera!
