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. 19 J/105s completed six races, with Jim Konigsberg’s inigo earning the victory with 19 points. Carl & Scott Gitchell’s Tenacious followed in second with 24 points, and James Macdonald’s Distant Passion rounded out the top three. The first-ever Helly Hansen Junior Crew, comprised of four local teenagers, competed against 18 other teams in the J/105 class, coming out in 11th place overall, with one 7th place race finish on their scorecard.
