55th Lowcountry Regatta set for this weekend

From staff reports

The Beaufort Yacht & Sailing Club’s 55th annual Lowcountry Regatta is set for Friday and Saturday, June 25 and 26.

For those who have attended for many years, you know the drill. Fun, fun, good food, good band, good bar, sailing – all of those things.

It is two days of sailboat racing over three race courses between the marshes downtown and The Sands in Port Royal. There will be approximately 100 boats involved, sailed by juniors and adults. There are 10 classes of boats, 15 support boats, 55 member volunteers on the water, 25 volunteers on land and a great Lowcountry Boil and live band on Saturday night.
Racing will be from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3p.m. on Sunday.

Non-members with eligible class dinghies are welcome to enter. Come and join the races or just watch.

Call 843-522-8216 for questions or go to the club website at byscnet.com/sailing/racing/Lowcountry Regatta for more information.

Sailors will need to pay to be officially registered. Any meals or extra T-shirts need to be reserved during registration. They will not be available other than at online registration. Club members are encouraged to make reservations for dinner through the club website.
