Lowcountry Hook

The Lowcountry of South Carolina and Georgia is a great area for boating. It’s been a popular spot for sailing for generations. Most of the yacht clubs in the Savannah/Hilton Head area sponsor a regatta at various points in the year. Each of these has become a signature event for the clubs.

One limitation of all of these events is that they take place on a few inland waterways, namely the Wilmington River in Savannah and Calibogue Sound off Hilton Head. Skippers have tired of competing in the same locations.

The Skidaway Island Boating Club (SIBC) and the Yacht Club on Hilton Head Island (YCHHI) are working together to launch an ocean race this summer. Called the “Lowcountry Hook,” this race will run from Hilton Head out to sea, passing Tybee Island, and then up Wassaw Sound to end at Landings Harbor on Skidaway Island. It will offer local sailors a truly different experience than the other local regattas provide.

The event will begin on Friday August 5 when Savannah skippers sail to Harbour Town Yacht Basin on Hilton Head. There will be a welcome party and Skipper’s Meeting hosted by the YCHHI. Skippers and crew will overnight there, and the race will begin the morning of Saturday August 6. Depending on winds, it will take about six hours for the fleet to reach Wassaw Sound and finish.

Yachts will enter the competition in one of two classes, Spinnaker and Non-spinnaker. Th race will be open to any type of sailboat larger than 20 feet. We will use a published handicap system to adjust the entrants to equivalent times so that both large and small sailboats can compete fairly.

On the evening of August 6th there will be a fleet party at Landings Harbor marina open to participants, sponsoring club members and neighbors. On the morning of the 7th, the Hilton Head sailors will return home.

NOR and SIS to come.
