First reporting, April 15: Today marks the beginning of the Sperry Top-Sider Charleston Race Week, which continues through Sunday, April 17th.

Close to 2,000 sailors are prepared to take part in the event, and the majority of the sea-lovers come from outside our great state. Race Week is a regatta for over a dozen classes and will span Charleston Harbor.
