The Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series kicks the Annapolis spring race season into high gear.
The Annapolis NOOD Regatta has long been the one pure one-design extravaganza of the series, and even after the pause of the pandemic, it all seemed happily normal in the sailing capital.
With wind steady and the current flooding hard, success on the final day came down to the basics: good starts and good boatwork, and of course, a good crew.
The wind was steady and the flood tide never stopped, which made the final day of racing at the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta Annapolis all the more challenging.
For the second day of racing at the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta Annapolis, strong winds and currents tested teams in their first major regatta of the season.
It was a breezy day on Chesapeake Bay, keeping skippers and crews on their toes, and sometimes on their sides. Here’s photographer Paul Todd’s selects from the day.
