Torqeedo signs on as Charleston Race Week sponsor

For the second year in a row, electric outboard manufacturer Torqeedo is sponsoring Charleston Race Week and will race its J70 in the regatta.

The keelboat regatta, which is in its 19th year, continues through Sunday in Charleston, S.C.

"Charleston Race Week is a great place to showcase Torqeedo's deep commitment to the sailing world,” Torqeedo North American division president and general manager Steve Trkla said in a statement. “The 18-24-foot one-design boats are a perfect fit for our Travel series of motors, providing unparalleled ease of use, stowability and performance. We’re proud to help keep this event affordable and accessible in order to encourage more teams and families to get on the water."

Charleston Race Week draws participants from around the world for three days of racing, socializing and learning, including inshore harbor and offshore courses.

Torqeedo is also holding a drawing for a Travel 1003 electric outboard motor and providing 350 dry bags to keep everyone's gear dry and safe. Participants also will have the opportunity to see Torqeedo's high-powered 40-hp and 80-hp electric motors on an inflatable Zodiac and a Caribbean skiff.
