Created in 1988, the National Offshore One-Design Regatta was an immediate success with its unique concept of racing level in larger production boats, its unrivaled post- racing social experiences and its professional race management. The Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series grew nationally and remains the most popular weekend racing series in the United States. The Sailing World Regatta Series today encompasses more than larger one-design race boats. Embracing popular fleets at each location, the Regatta Series now features many different boat types: dinghies, multihulls, and keelboats that race under established handicap systems. Sponsors and partners continue to enjoy nightly event-based activation at each yacht club with a targeted and passionate sailing audience.
All events are supported by premier host yacht clubs located in these renown sailing venues. At the conclusion of each regatta, one top-finishing team is selected to compete in the overall season championship, held in the British Virgin Islands in October. The Regatta Series is owned and managed by Sailing World, a Bonnier Corp. property. Follow the Series: #SailingWorld #RegattaSeries #HellyHansen #HHNOOD.
With the 2022 racing season now underway, Bonnier Events continues to build on the rich tradition of the iconic brand of Sailing World magazine and its long-running racing series by introducing the rebranded Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series.
