Sailed in J/24s since 1987, The Easter Regatta has been one of the world's most popular and enduring J/24 events. It offers an excellent mix of shore side events and world-class competition.

Whether yours is an amateur team attending your first regatta or a professional team contending for the top prize, you will find something that impels you to return year after year!

The Columbia Sailing Club offers first-class facilities. Everyone will appreciate the new Bath House at the beach and camping area, especially the campers! Their "never-leave-the-club" option offers free camping (first-come, first-served), meals every day, and parties galore! The beautiful peninsula and gorgeous beach provides an unparalleled camping experience.

Most importantly, the down-home southern hospitality ties everything together. This is the tradition that competitors have come to know and love.

Answering that "call to duty" for J/24 sailors are at least thirteen teams from across the cosmos of the J/24 universe. Notable characters include such teams like Mike Palazzo's Jo Mamma from Charleston YC; Steve Wood's Tasmanian Devil from Sail Newport, RI; Paul Abdullah's Team Tarheel from Jacksonville, FL; Corey Huseby's Bork! Bork! Bork! from St Paul, MN; Rob Baldwin's Pig from Central, SC; and Crisp McDonald's Level Pelican from Charleston, SC.
