J120 fleet start on Sunday


 Hosted by San Diego Yacht Club the NOOD regatta has been the gateway to spring one design racing with 20 classes with the largest fleet the 18 boat J105 fleet along with the largest Flying Tiger fleet ever assembled at 13 boats.

 

The conditions  were from 8-15 knots of wind over the 3 days with Sunday afternoon being the windiest and Saturday morning the lightest.  The regatta was also split into 5 race courses with a course inside both San Diego and Mission Bay and 3 ocean courses.  With San Diego Yacht Club under construction of the new junior club house the parties were mostly divided up compared to previous years.  There were a few protests on Saturday night and some of them went until 10:00 at night until they were resolved. The sailing was tight in many classes and the winners were all deserving after 3 great days of sailing.



 

 

 The J105’s were dominated by Doug and Pam Werner in Javelin winning 4 of 5 races and getting a second in the only race they did not win.  Using an entire inventory of Ullman Sails they had good starts and sailed clean to claim the victory by 14 points over 2nd.  Second in the J105 fleet was Wings followed by Current Obsession in 3rd, all 100% Ullman Sails powered boats. 

 

 

The Flying Tigers celebrating their largest fleet ever assembled, sailed in the flat water of San Diego’s South Bay where the International Sportboat Anarchy Festival was held last year and will return this year.  The Tigers raced all 3 days getting in 8 races total.  The top 3 boats all had OCS in their final score.  The top Tiger was Dangerous When Striped sailed by Chris Winnard.  This team not only won every race on Saturday but lead to every mark and were almost unchallenged that day.  Even with an OCS on the first day in their score they won by 3 points over Ruckus sailed by Eric Schlageter.  Both of these top 2 Tigers used Ullman Sails.  In fact 3 of the top 4 tiger used Ullman Sails and boats with Ullman Sails won 7 of the 8 races, the only one not won was the race that the top 3 boats were OCS.
