Sixteen J/105s at Annapolis NOOD

Racing was held August 28-30 for the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta Annapolis. The final of three days of racing treated sailors across 78 teams to cooler temperatures, sun and moderate (but signature Annapolis shifty) winds for the final two to three races among the two divisions and 10 fleets. In the largest fleet of the event, 16 J/105s battled it out with co-owners Cedric Lewis and Frederik Salvesen winning the class by 24 points with their family and friends aboard Mirage. Lewis and Slavesen met during high school sailing and have sailed together for 35 years. "It was nice to have a bit of normalcy in this age of Coronavirus and get out racing," said Lewis. "Our team has been dealing with adversity so sailing together was great." He credits flawless crew work as a major key to their success. "Today we finished up strong with a 2-1-1," he said. "The breeze was all over the place, and we saw pretty hefty shifts. We would start with a plan and stick to it. No freaking out if we fell behind."
