The inaugural Charleston Watersports Week will be held Sept. 5-14, the Charleston Area Sports Commission (CASC) announced.
The event series consists of water-based activities, competitive, recreational, instructional and leisurely, ranging from elite stand-up paddle boarding 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 aims to utilize the area’s natural environment while promoting one of the area’s best assets for sports activity, waterways and oceanfronts.
The initiative includes a unique combination of venues, accommodations, restaurants, attractions and tour operators spread across the Charleston area.
The primary goal is to provide an active getaway vacation for watersports enthusiasts and athletes after the summer’s peak tourism season.
Organizers will engage in a two-month marketing campaign that targets potential visitors in key markets. Charleston Restaurant Week and Charleston Beer Week will be held during the same time.
