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.

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

- Helicopter photography from Holy City Helicopters

- Party at Palmetto Brewery


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. Kiters can catch a ride with their gear from James Island YC dock to launch beaches near Ft. Sumter

These color/ numbers have already been claimed. Sign up before your favorite is gone!

Remember your favorite sports jersey can work too if the number is easy to see!

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!
