The CORA Offshore Challenge was initiated in 2006 to allow CORA sailors to demonstrate their expertise in offshore ocean racing. The series consists of seven long distance offshore races for 2018, including three overnight races. Competitors must complete at least one overnight race to qualify for overall Offshore Challenge Series trophies.

The 2018 Offshore Challenge Series is sponsored by QUANTUM SAILS/Sailing Inc of Charleston.
