[Updated -replay available] Tune in to the live video below of the Charleston Bermuda Yacht Race prizegiving. A fleet of 11 yachts competed in this year’s event, almost double the number of entries which participated in 2009. This 777-mile biennial contest, which began in 1997, was born of humble origins — the dream of two South Carolina sailors bent on creating offshore adventure for themselves and their friends. The participation of Charleston native Stephen Colbert in this year’s event has earned the race global media coverage — and numerous plugs for both the race and Bermuda on the Comedy Central star’s faux talk show.
