The Helly Hansen National Offshore One Design (NOOD) Regatta Series — the largest national sailboat racing circuit in the United States — returns to Marblehead, Mass., this week as part of Marblehead Race Week, which will serve as the fifth stop of the 2019 season, July 25-28. The event is organized by Sailing World and hosted by the Boston Yacht Club.

The annual event features one-design racing, where teams compete in races against identical boats. Points are accumulated based on finishing position in each race, and the team with the fewest total points at the conclusion of the regatta wins its class. Around 150 teams from across the East Coast and the country, are expected to compete in 14 fleets.

Every year, local, regional and national sailors register to compete in the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta Marblehead, vying for top marks in a wide array of classes and a chance at the Overall Winner title, which earns the winning team a berth at the Helly Hansen Caribbean NOOD Championship Regatta in the British Virgin Islands, Oct. 27-Nov. 1.

Helly Hansen — a global leader in technical sailing apparel with more than 140 years of experience protecting professionals on the water — continues as title sponsor for the elite sailing series for the fifth consecutive year. As part of Helly Hansen's commitment to the future of the sport, the company continues to sponsor one or two local youth teams as the Helly Hansen Junior Crew at each event in 2019.

Operating since 1988, Sailing World's National Offshore One Design Regattas, known as the "NOODs," are the longest-running and most popular sailboat racing series in North America. Every NOOD regatta attracts regional, national and international talent to compete against the local community on their home waters.

The 2019 Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta Series, which has already contested events in St. Petersburg, Fla., San Diego, Calif., Annapolis, Md., and Chicago this year, concludes with the NOOD Caribbean Championship Oct. 27-Nov. 1.
