27 teams from Long Island Sound traveled to Charleston this past weekend to compete in Charleston Race Week, which has become the largest keelboat regatta on the continent. The event hosts 5 race courses plus one distance race, providing a venue for more than 250 boats.  This year, sailors enjoyed two days of good sailing as Sunday’s races were cancelled for most classes due to gale force winds.
