Quantum Sails has been a returning sponsor of Charleston Race Week for five years, and we look forward to more.  Working with Randy is a true pleasure, both professionally and personally.  He understands the needs and desires of sponsors and competitors alike, and is an expert at bringing value to events for all involved.  Charleston Race Week continues to grow and evolve, thanks to Randy’s innovative ideas, his willingness to incorporate the ideas of others, and his enthusiasm for the sport.    
I have had the pleasure of working with Randy since 2011 when we hosted the Yacht Club Summit in Chicago.  We invited Randy to participate and share the lessons learned from his success at Charleston Race Week.  Randy is a driver of innovation in the sport of sailing.  He does this by listening to the sailors, continually trying new things, partnering with the entire sailing community and supporting their goals, and always having a bigger mission than just a successful race week; he is selflessly committed to a vibrant future for sailing.  He is an ambassador for the sport and has an innate ability to lead a diverse group of sailors and non-sailors to accomplish great things.
