Friday evening Welcome Reception
Your registration to the car show includes two people attending the reception.  The reception is 6:30 to 9:30.  It will be a harbor cruise on the Spirit of Charleston.  The boat is docked on the walkway to the USS Yorktown.  There will be food and a cash bar with beer and wine starting at 6:30.  From 7:00 to 9:30 we will cruise around the Charleston harbor.

This sleek, beautiful two deck dining yacht is perfect for entertaining on the water. The Spirit of Charleston has an open air deck that can be fully enclosed in inclement weather. The lower deck is spacious and elegantly decorated with beautiful amber sconces for lighting and a color palette that works well with any personal style. There are two full service bars onboard. Your guests will enjoy the comfort of a dining yacht and still feel they are part of the surrounding harbor.
