In its 28th consecutive year after beginning in 1988, the National Offshore One Design Regattas, also known as the “NOODs,” have released their schedule for the 2016 season.
As the longest-running and most popular sailboat racing series in North America, the national regatta series will include five U.S. states and conclude in the British Virgin Islands.
