The J24 Easter Regatta has been around for 51 years. It is the staple regatta to Columbia Sailing Club here on Lake Murray in South Carolina. But it has not always been known as the J24 Easter Regatta. The very first Easter Regatta held in 1966 was for the growing E-Scow scow. From 1966-1984 it was known as the E-Scow Easter Regatta. But the final year the E-Scow's were sailing the fleet had dwindled to only 6 boats, compared to having 60-70 boats in the past. In 1985 the executive board to CSC elected to change the regatta over to the largely popular J24 Fleet. By 1987 this regatta was on the calendar of every J24 sailor on the east coast. With the regatta peeking at a 66 boats in the early 90's this event has always brought great competition, excellent food, and event better people.
