Boats are arriving and the scene is set for what should be an action packed 2012 Charleston Race Week. The 19th through the 22nd Charleston, SC will host over 260 boats competing in 17 classes. Offshore and harbor courses will be scenes of excitement and drama this weekend as each class boasts a solid turnout.
We can hardly contain our excitement as four APS Staffers are anxiously anticipating the end of the work day to head south.
So where can you find us?
Aaron from Customer Service will be sailing with Mango and Liz from Fulfillment on Church Key in the J/80 fleet. With a 18 boat line, the J/80s will have a serious challenge on the harbor course. Moving offshore, there will be some friendly competition between the other two APSers where Warren from Customer Service and Katie from Marketing will be battling it out in the 12 boat PHRF D fleet.
Warren is returning to the same Beneteau 10m, L'Outrage, that he sailed on in Key West and Katie will be sailing on the Cape Fear 38, Tangent. Annapolis boats L'Outrage and Tanget coming off a one-two finish (respectively) in Key West will meet again to fight for a top spot in a larger Charleston fleet.
Look forward to updates from the crew as they take on CRW 2012. Katie is also very excited to try out her new Adidas Boat Lace CC PINK shoes. Expect a review on the latest addition to the shoe line up early next week.
