One of the many reasons Om Sailing Charters is one of the best catamaran sailing excursions in Charleston is because of its great location on Patriots Point. The 43’ sailboat is docked at the end of a floating pier at Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina at the end of Patriots Point in Mount Pleasant.

PATRIOTS POINT: THE MOST CONVENIENT STARTING POINT FOR A CHARLESTON SAILING CHARTER

Om Sailing Charters chooses to dock at Patriots Point precisely because it is so close to downtown. A simple five-minute car ride or uber over the bridge and you are there!

 

PATRIOT POINT COMBINES HISTORY WITH EXPERIENCE OF SAILING ON CHARLESTON HARBOR

Charleston Sailing ChartersSince Patriots Point is home to three museum ships, it’s a great way to combine the history of maritime life with the actual experience of it.

Start the day by discovering the history of three Naval ships. The largest is the USS Yorktown, an Essex-class aircraft carrier built during World War II, which continued to served in the Pacific during the Vietnam War. She later helped recovery the Apollo 8 spacecraft. The SS Laffey, nicknamed “The Ship That Would Not Die”, is the destroyer, a smaller ship that withstood the most unrelenting kamikaze attacks in history. And the submarine, the USS Clamagore, is the only known surviving example of a GUPPY type submarine.

After exploring thousands of feet of ship, including the planes and guns, let the wind and water of the open water cool, relax and refresh you in body and spirit. Just a short walk from the historic landmarks on Patriots Point, an afternoon sail with Om Sailing Charter lets you see what it’s like to explore the ocean yourself….but with a little more luxury than the the average naval seaman. It’s sailing of the more refined kind.

PATRIOT POINT COMBINES MODERN BEAUTY WITH CHARLESTON SAILING

Charleston Sailing Charters

Once you hop on board Om Sailing Charters you will be delighted by the view of one of Charleston’s most iconic landmarks: the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge — from the waterfront of Patriots Point. This cable-stayed suspension bridge is 13,200 feet long and the two diamond-shaped towers are each 575 feet high, tall enough to allow shipping containers through without a struggle, while strong enough to endure wind gusts in excess of 300 mph. The bridge connects downtown Charleston to all of the landmarks of Patriots Point.

The next time you are in Charleston, take a trip to Patriots Point and check out the ships, both the historic as well as the modern. A morning, afternoon or sunset sail with Om Sailing Charters, combined with the Charleston’s maritime museum, makes for a rich and enjoyable day.
