Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta Chicago
Cancelled • Chicago Yacht Club
Statement: Organizers of the Helly Hansen National Offshore One-Design Regatta series and their partners at the Chicago Yacht Club made the difficult decision today to cancel the 2020 edition of the Chicago NOOD. Earlier this year, the event was postponed in anticipation of eased COVID-19 regulations, and despite all efforts to reschedule, a suitable date could not be established.
Chicago Yacht Club has hosted the NOOD Regatta for more than 30 years, so the decision to cancel was not made lightly. All parties are now focused on planning the June 2021 regatta and Sailing World and the NOOD Regatta management team look forward to returning to the Windy City to continue the long-running tradition of high-quality racing and nightly socials.
