Shockwave wins IRC Division 2012 Charleston Race Week

Shockwave wins IRC Division 2012 Charleston Race Week

The 2012 Sperry Top-Sider Charleston Race Week was held April 19-22. In its 16th year, Charleston Race Week was the biggest it has ever been – with 257 boats.

George Sakellaris’ Mini Maxi Shockwave with a full Doyle Stratis inventory won the IRC division at the 2012 Charleston Race Week, winning 7 of the 8 races. At 72-feet, Shockwave is the largest boat to date to enter Charleston Race Week and benefited greatly from Doyle’s in-depth CFD analysis.

In the first ever 40-boat Viper 640 fleet, Doyle finished 1-2. Jason Carroll and team on Argo sailed a great event to win the class, with Doyle’s Brad Boston and team on Jackpot finishing in 2nd. This is the 3rd year in a row that Doyle sails have powered the winner of the Viper 640 Class at Charleston Race Week.

Doyle sails dominated the Ultimate 20 class with all boats powered by Doyle sails. Keith Ziegler just beat out BJ Jones to finish 1-2. Ziegler and Jones finished with 11 and 12 points respectively, trading 1st and 2nd place finishes in each race.
