Championship Series Results 2017

The NOOD's and Verve Cup always make for some of the best windward leeward racing in America. We had a great turn out and the sailing was awesome.  The boats traded positions at every turn and there was a number of really exciting crossings on course with tactics playing a big part of every race. The finish order does not tell just how close many of the finishes were.  It was a great time, One Design racing is the best and then there are the parties.

Congratulations all the winners. For more details go to Yachtscoring to see the race results.
