Charleston, S.C. (June 18, 2014): The Charleston Area Sports Commission (CASC) announced today that the inaugural Charleston Watersports Week will be held September 5 through 14. The event series consist of water-based activities, which are competitive, recreational, instructional and leisure. They range from elite standup paddleboarding competitions to sunset excursions for groups. An EXPO will be held for three days at the Charleston Maritime Center and Charleston Harbor.
Charleston Watersports Week was created to utilize the area’s natural environment in promoting one of our best assets for sports activity, waterways and ocean fronts. The initiative includes a unique combination of venues, accommodations, restaurants, attractions and tour operators which are spread out over the entire Charleston region.
The primary goal is to provide an active getaway vacation for watersports enthusiasts and athletes, just after the summer’s peak tourism season. Organizers will engage in a two-month marketing campaign that targets potential visitors in key drive markets. Other annual events being held during the same time are Charleston Restaurant Week and Charleston Beer Week.
