Glamourous weather prevailed for the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta San Diego on March 15-17 in San Diego, CA. Fourteen divisions hosted 123 teams, with racing inside San Diego and Coronado Bay and offshore on ocean courses. Going into the final race of the J/105s, a two-point margin between the top-three boats produced a winner-take-all showdown. After two races, Chuck Driscoll and his team on Juiced emerged victorious. "This win is important to us," said Driscoll, of San Diego. "My partner, Tom Hurlburt, and I have been sailing this regatta for 12 years, and we’ve come second many times. This was the first time we’ve been able to put it together for a win." The Driscoll family has a long history with the San Diego Yacht Club. "My grandfather was commodore here in 1939. My father won the Star Worlds in 1944 and was the skipper of Intrepid in the America’s Cup trials. My father also won the Lipton Cup, along with my brother and I. Our family has been involved in boating my whole life. We’ve been very fortunate." Stewart Cannon’s J-OK and Steve Howell’s Blink! Rounded out the top three.
