FORT 2 BATTERY RACE

DATES ANNOUNCED! APRIL 17-19th, 2020

Now in its 7th year, the Fort 2 Battery race is back at it again with the most thrilling kite powered drag race in the nation. Powered by Force Kite and Wake and hosted by the James Island Yacht Club, the Fort 2 Battery race will bring together the most competitive foil racers from all around the country as well as adrenaline seeking weekend warriors, for a pure speed run between 2 of Charlestons historic landmarks, the Charleston Battery and Fort Sumter. Like a flock of birds or an explosion of colorful confetti, well over a hundred kites will converge at one landmark, deftly jocking for position anxiously awaiting the starting gun for a mad dash across the harbor and the chance to measure themselves against their fellow sportsman. With the explosion of the gun, the fray surges with a single purpose; to cross the harbor to the finish line as fast as their skills can take them there.

Registration ends April 17, 2020 at 4:00pm EDT
