The Helly Hansen sailing world Regatta Series will begin its 33rd season in St. Petersburg, Florida this weekend, with races Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club. Formerly called the National Offshore One-Design NOOD Regatta and offering one-design racing, the series has expanded over the years to include dinghies, multihulls and keelboats. All sailboats race to an established handicap system.
The 2022 regatta series includes weekend races in San Diego, Calif.; Annapolis, MD.; Chicago, Ill.; and Marblehead, MA., and will be hosted by yacht clubs at each of these popular sailing venues. The top teams will compete in the overall season championship to be held in October in the British Virgin Islands.
The regatta series is owned and managed by sailing world, a property of Bonnier Corporation; the series has grown significantly over the past three decades and remains the most popular weekend racing series in the United States.
