Here's your SpinSheet Racing Roundup for the weekend of May 5-7... NOOD photos, results, and more.
Sailors who compete in the Helly Hansen National Offshore One Design (NOOD) Regatta each spring are used to a variety of weather conditions---four seasons in one weekend sometimes. This year's edition of Sailing World's signature series, hosted at Annapolis Yacht Club, brought the rain and wind as forecast and ended with a gear-buster Sunday. Congratulations to Conor Hayes and his team on the J/80 More Gostosa, who were the overall winner of the event. Find top-three results below, complete results here, and downloadable on-water photos here for purchase. Sorry we couldn't get more fleets--there's only so much you can do on a photo boat in those conditions! Stay tuned for party pictures later today.

Award Winners of the 2017 CCV Spring Series are: VOODOO 2, COOL CHANGE, ROUNDABOUT, and MIDNIGHT MISTRESS.
It was chilly and it was windy, and stuff was broken and crew were tested, and all in all it was a fine “series finale” day. Twenty-six (26) skippers and crew raced in the windy (15 to 18 knots) conditions with cold spray to boot. It was an appropriate day for the final day of the series. One of the most popular forms of equipment failure seemed to be a broken halyard. And, as the racing went on blown out sails caused a lot of grief.
The first weekend of the series was a two race day with windward-leeward races.On the third Sunday of the Series, the format was the same.The second Sunday was a middle distance race (Race #3) around fixed marks in the harbor.
