With the U20 NACs in Pensacola four weeks later on May 17-20 I'm sure many will have to choose between the two.  I'd hate to do Charleston at the expense of poor attendance at the NACs.  I could do both but if I have to choose it will be the NACs.
Let's here others intensions.............................?

Is it 3 days of racing or 4? I am planning on doing the NA's and adding it would add some transport costs. The biggest thing for me is time off. Tempting though if we have numbers.

NA's is first priority for Slippery. I hope if people are only doing one Regatta, it will be Pensacola.

With my vacation time restricted to summers now, I will not make it.  I am using all of my personal days to be at North Americans in Pensacola!

I would love to do this regatta, but not in the cards this year.

For those who are thinking of doing both CRW and the NA's. I talked to John at Latis Yachting solutions about the cost of moving the boats from Charlestown to Pensacola for the NA's. He will move a boat for $950 per boat. We would get a better deal for 4 or more boats. Also he will setup the boat for $350ea.

Not the cheapest but an option if teams are short on time.

Has anyone been in touch with Charleston Race Week?  How many boats do we need in order to get a start?

Charleston Race Week has become “the” regatta to attend!!
 
Most folks who’ve participated in the past few Charleston Race Weeks (CRW) say the event lacks nothing.  Perfect sailing breeze, comfortable temperatures, a gorgeous race venue and stellar on-shore and on-water race management are the rule, as evidenced by the unprecedented growth experienced by the South’s biggest regatta.
 
2011 had over 200 boats and the organizing committee thinks these numbers could reach 300 this year.  Don’t be daunted by these numbers, though – they handle this with ease, both on the race course and back on land.
 
With our North Americans in Pensacola a month later, consider tuning up at CRW, leaving your boat (location TBD based on the number interested in this option) and then heading down to FL for our May NA’s.
 
Here is the link to the CRW home page http://www.charlestonraceweek.com/  There is a discounted entry prior to January 31. Last year they capped the number of participants, so don’t wait to register.  Last year we had 12 U20’s and it would be great to see 20+.
 
Launching is easy.  We ramp launched up the Cooper River at a nice park and it was an easy sail/motor down to the regatta site.
 
Last year most U20’s opted to share a slip or a “well”.  Stan Jones is the Charleston Harbor Resort’s Marina Manager and can get you set up with slip arrangements.
 
Contact Emily Jones emilyojones@gmail.com  if you have any questions, need further information or need to find crew.

There is a traitor among our ranks as I noticed today on the charleston scratch sheets. Can this be Jim?
