Spread the NOODs: Major Regatta Fights Weak Winds but Prevails - Encinitas, CA Patch: "Three local yacht clubs serve as host venues for the annual event—San Diego, Mission Bay and Coronado. Each location will have free viewing areas for spectators between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday. Encinitas owner/skippers entered were: Ed Machado’s J Hawk (J105 yacht class) David Cheresh’s Troublemaker (J105 yacht class) Paul and Julie McPherson’s Niuhi (FT10 class) Brad Ruetenik’s Astragulus (I14 class) Gary Geisler’s Shibumi (Buccaneer 18 class) Sailors competed in a series of races, accumulating points based on placement in each individual race. The boat finishing with the fewest total points will be declared the winner of its class. Race officials will determine the regatta’s overall winner, based on the strongest finish in its most competitive class. The overall winner in San Diego—the second of seven races—will be invited to the Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Championship Regatta in the British Virgin Islands at the end of the season to compete aboard Sunsail 44i’s against the other overall winners in the 2013 series."
