2013 Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Regatta Series blows into Chicago

by NOOD Regattas 27 Mar 2013 21:00 GMT 7-9 June 2013

The 26th NOOD season is off and running! June will bring the NOOD Regatta back to Chicago in style. We are looking forward to an even bigger and better NOOD regatta this year and we are excited to work with the Chicago Yacht Club for three days of exciting racing and great parties too.

2013 will see some changes for the NOOD Regattas, from a new and improved party structure, exciting additions from Sperry and new fleets on the line. Also, we have partnered with Yacht Scoring so you will see changes to the online registration system and the addition of online crew waivers. In many ways, we are working to make sure the NOODs remain the nations premier regatta series. There will be more details coming your way soon.

Join us in Chicago this year to experience the improvements first hand!

A minimum of six boats is required for a class to remain eligible.

The Organizing Authority reserves the right to invite additional classes with a minimum of six entries.

A $50 late fee (in addition to the entry fee) will be added to entries received after May 20, 2013. Be sure to get your entry in early and avoid the penalty.

Complete Registration and Eligibility details are contained in the Notice of Race. If racing either PHRF or ORR please be sure to read the NOR thoroughly.

Please be sure to read the Registration and Party information contained in the NORs very carefully as times and structure have changed from previous years.

A few social notes: Friday apres-racing is Happy Hour with a guest speaker (a good night to plan your crew dinner after grabbing snacks at Happy Hour) Saturday will be longer super fun dinner party and the awards will be presented on Sunday. Plus Sperry has a few surprises in store for you, details to follow. Of course each night will feature bars well stocked with Mt Gay. Buy your social tickets when you enter for best prices.
