National Offshore One-Design, or NOOD, is a multi-city sailboat racing circuit held in the US. The series is organized by Sailing World Magazine, and has taken place in St. Petersburg, FL, San Diego, CA, Annapolis, MD, Seattle, WA, Chicago, IL and Marblehead, MA with the Overall NOOD Championship hosted by Sunsail taking place from October 26 - 31, 2014 in the beautiful BVI’s.
Middletown, RI: Long time Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Regatta sponsor Sunsail has announced that they are increasing their commitment to North America’s top regatta series. Sunsail will upgrade the charter offered as the top prize for each winner of a 2014 NOOD with 2 extra days on board a fleet of Jeanneau 44i’s, and will support an expansion of the Caribbean championship by offering special NOOD charter packages to anyone who wants to come and join the fun.
Sunsail was instrumental in the creation of the Caribbean NOOD Championship event in 2007 when they offered free bareboat charters aboard matching Sunsail 39i’s as prizes to the overall winners of each NOOD. For the past eight years, the six individual regatta winners have been competing to be named the Sailing World NOOD Regatta Overall Champion in an invitation-only event in the BVI’s each November.
For the first time in 2014, sailors everywhere are invited to participate in this culmination of the NOOD’s annual series. Sailing World is adding an open class to the Caribbean NOOD Championship and Sunsail is offering special NOOD values on their fleet of top quality bareboats in Tortola for all who wish to come and race NOOD in the BVI.
