Charleston Race Week 2011 officially started today with great conditions and lots of racing. I made it out to cover all of the inshore courses and had a great ride with Andrew on Protector's new 25 foot boat. It's always wonderful to shoot from a Protector! Thanks again to Moose McClintock from Dimension Polyant for helping out with the blogging for Sailing Updates as well. He'll be joining me on the water all weekend! Check out the Favorites Gallery I've started and will be adding to until the individual class and team galleries are ready for viewing.
We headed to Annapolis to support the Santa Maria Cup with their Pro-Am regatta that was supposed to take place on Tuesday in J22's. The event was to allow the girls to practice prior to the match racing began by racing against supporting businesses. Unfortunately, due to too much breeze, the race committee called off the event. We had a good time catching up with the teams we knew and meeting some other teams. Click here for details on the Santa Maria Cup racing this week.
