ONDECK ANNOUNCES 2011 CHARLESTON BERMUDA RACE DATE
Monday 20th December 2010

For Immediate Release    
December 20, 2010

 CHARLESTON, SC — OnDeck US, in coordination with the South Carolina Maritime Foundation (SCMF) and the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club (RBYC), is pleased to announce May 21, 2011 as the official start of the biennial Charleston Bermuda Race. Yachtsmen from all ports are invited to take part in this biennial sailboat event and embrace the challenge of the 777 mile course from Charleston Harbor to Bermuda.  Sailors with boats of at least 30 feet in length have a choice of competing in one of five divisions:  Racing, Cruising - Spinnaker, Cruising - Non Spinnaker, Double-Handed or Multi-Hull.   

 Charleston and Bermuda share a rich maritime history and continue to strengthen their commercial and cultural connections.   Started during the 1990's, this race promises to carry on the tradition that leads sailors from the cobblestone streets and picturesque waterfront of Charleston Harbor to the beautiful Atlantic islandscape of Bermuda. 

 OnDeck has recently established operations in the US with the opening of its first base in Charleston, South Carolina.  OnDeck US is poised to move ahead with a long term commitment to developing a well rounded sailing operation offering all levels of sailboat instruction from basic to advanced racing clinics, a wide range of offshore and racing opportunities, skippered charters, yacht management and corporate team building events.  Full boat charters or individual berths for those wanting to experience the  sailing adventure of the Charleston Bermuda Race are available through OnDeck.  Boats and spaces are limited so early reservations are definitely encouraged. 

 The SCMF is a public nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that owns and operates the tall ship Spirit of South Carolina. The Foundation’s mission is to create opportunities for life-changing experiences resulting in leaders for tomorrow’s communities.  The start of the Charleston Bermuda Race marks the end of several SCMF hosted waterfront events including the Charleston Harborfest  and start of the final Velux 5 Oceans Solo Challenge Sprint to LaRochelle, France.

 The RBYC was first established in 1844 and has become well known for hosting world class sailing events welcoming sailors from around the globe.  Situated on Albuoy's Point in Hamilton, Bermuda, the club and marina combine to create a perfect venue for docking and post-race shoreside activities.
