Despite steady showers, strong winds made for favorable sailing conditions Sunday as the 2016 Helly Hansen National Offshore One Design (NOOD) Regatta, the largest national sailboat racing circuit in the United States, came to a close after three days of competition. During the three-day event, nearly 200 boats and 1,000 sailors raced in 13 classes in a battle against rain, wind and fierce competition from around the world, ranging from amateur to world champion. Seven J/111s were registered, and only one point separated the top two boats after six races. Martin Roesch’s Velocity eked out the victory with nine points, over Bennet Greenwald’s Perseverance with 10. David McCreight’s Dark Horse took third place with 21 points, one in front of Douglas Curtiss’ Wicked 2.0. For complete results, click here.
