Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta at Marblehead Race Week
It is with disappointment that Organizers of the Helly Hansen National Offshore One-Design Regatta series in conjunction with Marblehead Racing Association have to cancel the 2020 edition of the NOOD at Marblehead Race Week.
The Massachusetts Reopening Standards released on July 6th, restrict the ability for the event to continue at this time. A few weeks ago, the event was postponed in anticipation of eased COVID-19 regulations, however the restrictions were not eased enough to include the NOOD, hence today's cancellation. NOOD has been incorporated with Marblehead Race Week for over 20 years so the decision to cancel was not made lightly. All parties are now focused on planning the July 2021 regatta and Sailing World and the NOOD Regatta management team look forward to returning to Marblehead to continue the long-running tradition of high-quality racing and nightly socials.
