Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta in Annapolis on May 1-3
Published on March 30th, 2015
The Chesapeake Bay will come alive May 1-3 as the largest national sailboat racing circuit in the United States, the Helly Hansen National Offshore One Design (NOOD) Regatta series, will make its third stop of the season five-event in Annapolis, MD.
The Annapolis NOOD will have nearly 1,000 sailors among 14 or more classes competing for the event’s top prize – a trip to the British Virgin Islands in the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta Championship hosted by Sunsail. During the three-day event hosted by the Annapolis Yacht Club, the Overall Winner is chosen based upon the strongest finish in the most competitive class.
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 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, May 3, at the culmination of the event.
The overall winner of the Annapolis NOOD will join Grant Dumas of St. Petersburg, Fla., and his crew of the Tripp 38 Warrior and John Laun’s caper crew of San Diego, Calif., along with other victors in the British Virgin Islands to compete in the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta Championship hosted by Sunsail.
