    Thanks for the promo. Let your readers/followers know that we’ve got open-to-the-public beach parties each evening of the event at the Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina. It’s really the best deal in town. For $20/person (each evening), you get food (on Thurs. Sat. and Sunday), live music (Plane Jane and Ben Fagan and the Charleston Groove Factory), and all the Gosling’s Rum drinks you can manage (along with beer and wine). Plus, you get to hob nob with some of the most talented racing sailors in the country. What’s not to like?

    (Full disclosure: I’m the media director for the regatta.)
