Excellent Conditions, Impressive Sailing Continues at Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Regatta San Diego

Published on March 15th, 2014

San Diego, CA (March 15, 2014) – Breezy conditions on San Diego Bay during the second day of racing at the Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Regatta allowed boats across all 14 classes to complete races today. The sailors on the regatta’s South Bay course were again privy to the Bay’s optimal conditions and excelled in neck-to-neck competition.

For the second consecutive day, Minneapolis, MN. Skipper Joel Ronning exemplified top-tier sailing. Ronning and crew aboard Catapult, fought off valiant efforts from local skippers to maintain a stronghold on the J/70 class’s lead. With an 11-point lead in the highly-competitive class the Catapult team has positioned themselves as a favorite to claim Overall Winner honors with another impressive performance during tomorrow’s final day of sailing.

The Viper 640 class has also caught the attention of the judging committee after completing seven tight races on the Bay. Costa Mesa’s Alex Steele and crew aboard Last Call have put on one of the regatta’s paramount performances thus far and also look to figure into the equation for top honors in San Diego.
