Not this November! This November, I'm headed down to the British Virgin Islands, where I'll join overall champions from the nine-event Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Regatta series for the 2010 Sperry Top-Sider Caribbean NOOD Championship. I participated in the event once before, in 2006, so I know what to expect: a week of pure fun in Sunsail 39s, hopping from Tortola to Cooper Island to Virgin Gorda to Jost Van Dyke to Norman Island. Along the way, there'll be point-to-point races, windward-leewards in Lasers at Bitter End YC, and plenty of time for carousing with my new best friends. For the teams who earned their invite by besting top-notch competition throughout the United States, the Caribbean NOOD Championship is a just reward, courtesy of our sponsors. For me, it's just a reward.
