Helly Hansen recently announced its continuation as the name and title sponsor of the National Offshore One Design (NOOD) Regattas in 2022. The NOOD series is the largest sailing regatta series in North America.
Helly Hansen has had a longstanding partnership with the NOOD Regattas and is a leader in performance sailing apparel. Helly Hansen and NOOD look to build on a solid 2021 season that saw strong participation among competitors at all five domestic events.
“Helly Hansen is very excited to be back again for the eighth year with the NOOD Regatta Series. NOOD, Sailing World and the host clubs have been fantastic partners since we came on as title-sponsor in 2013,” said Deborah Beggan, vice president of sales, Helly Hansen US. “It’s been amazing to be a part of a regatta series that brings so many people out on the water in multiple locations. Each NOOD Regatta has become a cherished summer event for locals, increasing participation in the sport and contributing to the future success of sailing. It’s an honor to be involved and provide them with amazing technical sailing gear that helps them perform and have fun.”
The NOOD Regattas were founded in 1988 by Sailing World and have grown to become the largest and most popular sailing regatta series in the US. Five domestic events comprise the regular season schedule, culminating with the Caribbean NOOD Championship in the British Virgin Islands.
“Helly Hansen has been such a great partner for so many years with the NOODs and we are honored to have them continue that relationship in 2022,” said Sarah Renz, Bonnier Corporation event director for sailing events. “We are also excited to announce the 2022 schedule, which has all of the traditional events our competitors have come to know and appreciate. We experienced great momentum this past season and can’t wait to hit the water in 2022 and continue to build and grow the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta series.”
As has been the tradition for several years, the 2022 regular season will open in February in St. Petersburg, FL., with a regatta hosted by the St. Petersburg Yacht Club. The season continues in March in San Diego for a regatta hosted by the San Diego Yacht Club. See the full schedule below.
