2010 Annapolis NOOD



The nine event Sperry Top-Sider NOOD regatta circuit scheduled throughout

the U.S. has already visited warm weather cities St. Petersburg, FL and San

Diego, CA, and is ready to greet spring sailing in Annapolis, MD this

weekend (April 30-May 2). With more than 200 boats competing in 16 classes,

here is a report from the Farr 30 fleet by Brad Kauffman:


"There are a lot of new things happening with the class. We are under new

management, run by the owners, and are seeing numbers on the increase for

regattas. We have 11 registered for the NOOD this year, when we could only

muster 5 last year. New this year is a perpetual trophy funded by the owners

to be awarded annually to the winner of the Annapolis NOOD. We have boats

here from as far away as Chicago. Also, the 2010 NAs are going to be held in

Annapolis at CBYRA Race Week over Labor Day weekend.


"We expect some competitive racing this year at the NOODs. Turbo Duck is the

boat to beat, as they were the winner last year at the CBYRA Race Week

(NAs), where we had 12 boats. Also Adrenalin and Snooker are very

competitive and could easily take the top spot. Our fleet is making a

transition from the Grand Prix to mostly Corinthian. We expect changes in

the class rules this year to attract new owners. We did not have a class at

Key West Race Week but are expecting one next January." -- Sailing World
