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 you are 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 fourteen J/24s were thrilled to be sailing on Lake Murray. Three races were completed, and it was a battle to the wire. Winning by just one point was Chris Stone's Velocidad over Charles Bumgardner USA 555. James Howard's Classic completed the podium. Rounding out the top five was John Hirsch's Daze Off in fourth and Fred Wiedeke's Caramella in fifth position.

The Columbia Sailing Club offers first-class facilities, such as the new Bath House at the beach and camping area! 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 provide an unparalleled camping experience. Most importantly, the down-home southern hospitality tied everything together. This is the tradition that J/24 competitors have come to know and love.
