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
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!
