Dear Sperry Top-Sider San Francisco NOOD Regatta Sailors:

As many of you know, Sailing World’s NOOD Regatta has had a presence in the Bay Area for

many years. In September 2012 Sailing World partnered with the Corinthian Yacht Club of San

Francisco and Sausalito Yacht Club to hold the NOOD Regatta on San Francisco Bay.

Due to conflicts in scheduling, the Louis Vuitton Cup trials, and America’s Cup activity on the

Bay for much of next year’s sailing season, we have decided to put the San Francisco NOOD on

hiatus until 2014.

Sailing World greatly appreciates your support, friendship, and enthusiasm extended to the

NOOD Regatta staff and its supporters by so many of you. It has been our pleasure to have given

you some great racing on San Francisco Bay in the past and in the future. In the meantime please

join us in 2013 at our other two West Coast NOODs in San Diego March 15-17 and Seattle May

17-19.

The entire Sailing World and NOOD team join me in wishing you a great sailing season in 2013

and beyond and thank you for supporting the NOODs. See you in 2014!

Sincerely yours,

George M. Brengle

Well that is disappointing. Best venue ever. Are there no weekends in August or September that would work?

The thing that happens when the AC racing is on, is not that entire bay is taken up by it, but that crew who would normally be racing are likely to opt out for AC watching. I rather doubt that element was a part of the decision process, but it was certainly what happened for the last two events.

A bit of a hijack but......is the rumor that BBS will be in July true??

Seem that the whole schedule is getting moved around this year due to the AC...

Interesting. I'd thought it would be squeezed in between the LVC and AC, but having it in July (if the LVC is shortened) or late September (as long as it doesn't overlap with the stag cruise) would also make more sense.
