LinGin Wins 2013 NOOD Regatta - Top Three Tied for High Point


The first CBYRA High Point event of the year is now in the books with Tim Williams and the crew of LinGin providing a solid performance to win the 2013 Annapolis NOOD Regatta.  The Maple Leaf Trophy was on display at the awards ceremony on Sunday.  In addition to the NOOD Regatta trophy, Tim was presented with the Maple Leaf Trophy at the same time.  Congratulations to Tim and his crew on their hard fought victory.  For complete results please visit Yacht Scoring.

The racing was close throughout the weekend.  Going into the last race, Argo and Windswept were tied for second with LinGin in first with a comfortable lead.  LinGin only needed to not finish last to secure the regatta victory.  The last race was shortened due to the dying breeze.  By winning the last race, Argo and crew edged out Windswept by only one point.  LinGin's third in the last race was enough to win the regatta but it did complete the weekend with the top three boats all tied for High Point.

High Point scoring is a very complicated formula.  In general, you get a point for starting a race and another point for each boat you beat in a race.  There are also bonus points for races over 25 miles.  For  regattas with more that one race in a day, the combined score for the day is used to compute the scoring.  Multi-day regattas like the NOOD score each day individually.

And that is how we end up with a three-way tie for first in High Point.  Argo, LinGin and Windswept each scored first, second and third during the 3-day NOOD regatta.
