2014 Annapolis NOOD Regatta-Superweek!
It is never too early to start preparing for success. If you like to win but don’t sail 12 months of the year, it is important to remember the lessons learned last season. That is not all that easy. Instead of spending those first few regattas getting back up to speed, you can start your season off with a bang by preparing for a successful season after training and racing with J World Annapolis during the first big event of the season – the 2014 Annapolis NOOD Regatta.
The 2013 Annapolis NOOD regatta is ostensibly the kick off event of racing on the Chesapeake Bay, and for New England or Midwestern racers comes at a time that enables you to get a jump on your competition. With this in mind, we have designed a proven four day on-the-water racing training and seminar program preceding three days of actual one design racing in the highly competitive and greatly attended J/80 class. Seven days of racing training – with three days of real racing! Imagine going to driving school and then racing in the Indy 500! Our program of thoughtful seminars and on-the-water training will get you back in the fast lane, accelerate your learning curve and provide a truly memorable racing experience.
World Class Coaches and Seminar Leaders
Our world class coaching staff will be supplemented with some of the best sailing professionals in the business who will talk about winning strategies, sail trim and rig tune. Champion sailors and world class sailing professionals will augment our highly qualified and experienced staff.
Unique Learning Experience
Keelboat racing requires a remarkable amount of crew communication and choreography. Because of this, we believe strongly that “cross-training” positions is the key to understanding how interdependent each role is and how crucial coordinated efforts are to success in any boat. Unless you are coming as part of a pre-set crew that will not be rotating positions, each client can plan on helming, trimming and working the bow. If you are ready to improve your skills and develop new experiences – then this is the program for you.
Huge High Performance One Design Fleet
We use J/80′s as our race training platform because they are the best learning platform around. Fast, fun and with a great following there is no other class that can provide the teaching and learning opportunities along with the great racing that the J/80 class does. With J/80 North Americans and World’s coming to Annapolis in 2014 you can bet that there will be teams preparing for the venue by participating in the 2013 Annapolis NOOD Regatta. With more than 25 boats sailed locally – the NOODs are guaranteed to be a well attended event that will prepare you for big starts and tough fleets anywhere.
April 28th-May 4th
