The San Juan 21s were pushed to their limit on Sunday on Tampa Bay, as the 2012 Sailing World St. Petersburg NOOD regatta went out with a bang. After what seemed like the slowest arrival of a cold front in history across Friday and Saturday, Sunday's weather dragged it out even further, including ominous clouds and several rain squalls followed by sunny skies, and then more rain. But there was no shortage of wind throughout! The 114 boats in 12 classes in the regatta had struggled through hours of postponement across the first two days of the regatta, so everybody was ready for action on Sunday. Race Committee ran 4 races for all of the fleets that could last that long. Sailing World put on a great event on shore and on the water. See more photos here and the results here. Congrats to overall winner Travis Odenbach on J/24 Honey Badger. Travis will join the overall winners from the other 2012 NOOD regattas around the country in the NOOD championship regatta in the BVI!
