At the end of the day, a regatta is all about the breeze. And when the wind generously gave its all for the last race of Charleston Race Week 2023, it brought smiles to many faces and success across all 15 fleets racing. PRO Taran Teague commented, “We had some weather challenges. We were lucky to get four races in on Day 1, and we had an incredible front come in on Day 2 which was beautiful to watch and we managed to get two races off. Then on the final day, we started an hour early so all classes got their full complement of racing in.” Mike Quaid (Williston, VT) racing on the J/24 Ice Cube took first in class with 16 points, a tidy 12-point lead over second place team Alexandria 4. “It was great, and we are very happy to have won the regatta,” Quaid said. “We started each day with a plan based on what the current was doing which was an important part of racing Circle One at the confluence of the two rivers.
