MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (July 11, 2018) – Registration is now open for the 14th Annual Mount Pleasant Junior Regatta.
The only youth-oriented regatta in the local area, this friendly competition will be held Saturday, August 11, at Hobcaw Yacht Club.
With the beautiful Wando & Cooper River as their arena, participants will enjoy competing in this unique sport.
“One goal of the regatta is to encourage participation from youth who have little racing experience but possess basic boat handling skills,” said Recreation Program Coordinator Tina Carter. “This is a great opportunity for junior sailors of all ability levels to try out or perfect their competition skills.”
To pre-register, fill out a registration form at any Mount Pleasant Recreation Department office, or download a registration form from our website here. Online registration is also available.
Registration will be on-site Saturday, August 11, at 10 a.m. Entry fee before August 11 is $20 per 1 person/$25 per 2 person boat and $25/$30 the day of the event. The skippers’ meeting is scheduled for 11 a.m., followed by lunch and first warning at 12:30 p.m.
Boat classes are Optimist (green, white, blue and red) Sunfish, 420, Open Bic and Lasers. A limited number of Optimist and 420 boats will be available on a first-come basis and must be reserved by calling Tina Carter at (843) 849-2061.
