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