Warrior Sailing Strong at Charleston Race Week

Sperry Charleston Race Week concluded April 14 in spectacular fashion with strong winds producing exciting action. Warrior Sailing 1, skippered by Sammy Hodges, led from start to finish in the J/22 fleet – winning five races and having the luxury of skipping the last. Navy veteran Ruben Munoz (jib) and Army veteran Troy Rassmussen (main) were the warriors aboard the boat. "Tiger Woods won the Masters, but that doesn’t even compare to what we did," Munoz said proudly. "We came here to have fun and learn, so winning is icing on the cake." This was the first sailing experience for Rassmussen, who gave credit to Hodges for helming and coaching at the same time. "Sammy was awesome about keeping us on point and teaching all the little nuances," he said. For complete event details, visit https://charlestonraceweek.com/.
