Yachts sail into Savannah for Savannah Cup

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) – More than 20 yachts will sail into Savannah Saturday evening after an overnight race from Charleston, South Carolina.

The Chatham Sailing Club, in concert with Charleston Ocean Racing Association, is hosting the first Savannah Cup Offshore Sailing Race this weekend.

The Savannah Cup is meant to be a fun and challenging sailing event that showcases the town's waterfront.

Plans are being discussed for future iterations of the race to be philanthropic in nature. Next year's event will begin in Savannah and end in Charleston.
