NOOD Regatta series coming to San Diego
Published on February 27th, 2015
The largest national sailboat racing circuit in the United States, the Helly Hansen National Offshore One Design (NOOD) Regatta series, will make its second stop of the 6-event 2015 season in San Diego, CA, on March 13-15. The San Diego NOOD will have roughly 700 sailors competing on San Diego Bay for the event’s top prize – a trip to the British Virgin Islands to compete in the Helly Hansen NOOD Championship Regatta aboard a Sunsail 44i.
To recognize exceptional individual performances in each boat class, NOOD Premiere Sponsor, North Sails, will present daily awards for the top three daily crews in each class. Additionally, on each Saturday of the NOOD season, North Sails will present the best performing local boat with an award for that day’s best racing. The final awards will be presented on Sunday, March 15, at the culmination of the event.
At each NOOD regatta, an overall winner is chosen based upon the strongest finish in the most competitive class. The overall winner of the San Diego NOOD will join Grant Dumas, of St. Petersburg, Fla., and the crew of the Tripp 38 “Warrior,” along with other victors, in the British Virgin Islands in the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta Championship.
