CHARLESTON–Spring in the South Carolina Lowcountry is marked each year by blooming jasmine, longer days and – for the past 18 years – Sperry Top-Sider Charleston Race Week, a regatta like no other. What sets this event apart is its unique combination of heightened competition across a wide spectrum of sailboat designs and superb Southern hospitality, each in abundance. But there’s another factor that has come to characterize this bucket-list event for sailors from across the U.S., and that’s the unusually strong commitment exhibited by the event’s sponsors.
This year, Quantum Sail Design Group is the official sailmaker, and joins sponsors Sperry Top-Sider, Goslings Rum, Vineyard Vines, and Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina.
“Charleston Race Week’s organizers have done a tremendous job in building a respected event that is now one of the largest of its kind in the country,” notes Quantum President Ed Reynolds. “The regatta has a great, grassroots vibe that resonates with the sailing community. The focus on creating a great customer experience aligns with what Quantum is all about, and we look forward to partnering with the event staff to build on this even more. And,” adds Reynolds, “With our sail loft in Charleston, we will be able to provide a high level of service and support to the race teams as well as professional on-the-water coaching, post-race debriefs, and event coverage utilizing the talents of our Quantum team members.”
