      DEC. 13, 2010, CHARLOTTE HARBOR, FL. -- With its timing and location amidst a busy midwinter regatta season, the Charlotte Harbor Regatta is a great event for 2.4mR racers, able-bodied and disabled. Set for Feb. 3-6, 2011, the Charlotte Harbor Regatta features 11 one-design classes racing on three circles. With the 2012 IFDS World Championships awarded to Charlotte Harbor, the inclusion of the 2.4mRs in the 2011 Charlotte Harbor Regatta (as well as the 2012 event) gives disabled competitors much-needed training against top international competition during a critical period before the 2012 IFDS Worlds and the 2012 Paralympic Games.

      For competitors in the 2011 Miami OCRs looking for another midwinter regatta in sunny Florida, the Charlotte Harbor Regatta is the place to be. Located just off Interstate 75 between Fort Myers and Sarasota, Charlotte Harbor is only a three-hour car ride from Biscayne Bay. Factor in free storage, free slips and four nights of dinners included in the $75 entry fee (only $60 with early registration by Dec. 31 and US Sailling membership), plus hotel rates as low as $64 a night and the Charlotte Harbor Regatta truly is "the fun, affordable regatta."

      The great thing about the 2.4mR class is the level playing field the design provides for racing between able-bodied and disabled sailors. In the 2009 North American Championships, four of the top 10 finishers were disabled sailors. And onshore, the Charlotte Harbor hospitality makes no distinction between the two. As a recent 2010 IFDS world champion said during a recent visit to Charlotte Harbor, "Sounds like fun on the social side, too."
