CORA’s Military Salute Regatta was established as a fun event honoring our nation’s active-duty Military and Veterans and to gratefully acknowledge their service to our country!

Charleston, SC has a deep military history, going back to the Revolutionary war. This regatta is a meaningful way to honor and applaud our military for their service – past and present.

Through sailboat racing we celebrate freedom and offer those who protect it a day full of camaraderie and competitive spirit while sharing the experience with our CORA Skippers on the Charleston Harbor.  Those not racing and guests are invited to participate on the spectator boats and the festivities continue after racing when everyone comes together to swap stories over an All-American picnic and awards presentation.  

Now in its 3rd year, the Regatta continues the tradition of contributing to organizations that provide care and support for veterans, active duty personnel and their families. Veterans on Deck and Fisher House Charleston are this year’s featured beneficiaries.

We are honored to sponsor CORA’s Military Salute Regatta for the third year. Our active military and veterans are such an integral part of the Charleston community, and this is just one way for us to celebrate them, along with CORA and Veterans on Deck.
We had great events the last two years and hope to welcome even more participants this year!

Mike Gianoni, President-CEO, Blackbaud

“At Overhead Door Company of Charleston, we are passionate about supporting our military and veterans. Several of our employees, as well as family members, have served in the Armed Forces. We cannot think of a better cause then sponsoring an event that honors our nation’s heroes.”

What an incredible opportunity to not only volunteer in support of our veterans but as a US Army vet also participate in enjoying the camaraderie of sailing and connecting with other fellow veterans. And as a bonus, I am proud to see my company, Blackbaud, backing such a great cause by sponsoring the event.”
