The NOOD races in St Petersburg, Florida

By

St Petersburg - Sailboat RacesWhen you talk about this to someone, eyebrows raise, and sometimes men will leer just a bit - they're thinking NUDE sailboat races instead of NOOD  (National Offshore One-Design) sailboat races. Three days of NOOD regattas are taking place in St. Petersburg, in sight of land, just off The Pier. Some 1,000 sailors are racing in this famous regatta, hosted by the St Petersburg Yacht Club, a well known sailing club. 

One of the racers is Jennifer French, certainly a contender. If she wins, she'll be the first female winner of NOOD, and also the first disabled winner. The St Petersburg Yacht Club and the St Petersburg Sailing Center have two young teams in the races - one of high school boys and the other of high school girls.

St. Petersburg has been home for many international sailors, including Ed Baird, famous skipper in the America's Cup races. 

When we moved from Newport, Rhode Island, a waterfront sailing capital, it was only appropriate that we move to St. Petersburg, also a waterfront sailing hub.
