The ninth running of the Biannual Charleston to Bermuda Race gets underway on May 16th 2013. Every two years, sailors get a chance to race between two spectacular venues by participating in the Charleston to Bermuda Race, a 777-mile adventure.

The race starts in Charleston Harbor on Thursday, May 16 at 1400 hours. The yachts expect to be in Bermuda by Friday, May 24th depending on the weather and the power of the wind.

Race Director Randy Draftz says 'This race is a truly unique experience crossing the Atlantic Ocean from Charleston to Bermuda, traversing the Gulf Stream. The sailing instructions this year will take into account the number and type of boats participating.'

'After months of preparation AZURA and her crew are ready for the crossing and looking forward to being out on the ocean and under the stars.' says Jamie Walker, yacht owner and participant.

The pre-race launch party will be held at the Charleston Yacht Club on Wednesday, May 15 at 7:00pm for Competitors, Charleston Yacht Club and Charleston Ocean Racing Association members. In addition to dignitaries from Charleston, Andy Burnett-Herkes will be in attendance representing the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club.

The awards banquet will take place at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club on Saturday, May 25.

Each boat will be fitted with a tracking device that will allow race progress to be monitored online at Charleston Bermuda Race website.
