CORA’s Military Salute Regatta is a fun event honoring our nation’s Veterans and Active-Duty Military to gratefully acknowledge their service to our country! In addition, we believe in giving back and this event also serves as a fundraiser where proceeds will benefit non-profit organizations that support Veteran and Active-Duty Military efforts.
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. We invite all veterans and active-duty military personnel to come sailing in the regatta at no cost.
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.
Since 2021, 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 the featured beneficiaries.
