Scuttlebutt Sailing News posted interesting sailing participants viewpoints about Charleston Race Week Cup, “Capturing the Charleston Race Week Cup”.
The consensus seems to be that the event was a great success even though some of the races had to be cancelled due to weather problems.
Here is but one of the many comments:
“That last race proved decisive in the Spinnaker Pursuit class as skipper Rick Moore steered the J/120 Moose Down to line honors…
“Actually, the key to the whole thing was our crew just keeping the boat moving forward at all times, particularly on Friday when it was very light and sloppy,” said Moore, a Charleston local.
“Today we were fully-loaded and totally dialed in. We stayed on target, watched where we were going and used the currents. We’re extremely thankful for the outcome. It was a great day of racing and we had a blast in the Pursuit fleet. It’s a challenge when you see the boats coming up behind you and you have to work to stay in front of them.”
