Six boats are registered for the 2018 Annapolis NOOD Regatta: Argo, Constance, Latika, Laughing Gull, Second-2-None, and Windswept. The field is a bit smaller this year due to one skipper having to attend his daughter's graduation from college, another skipper delayed in boat prep due to the unseasonably cold months of March and April, and another boat in the midst of a repair.
Nonetheless, the Albergs will race in this the 30th edition of Annapolis NOOD Regatta. Due to fewer boats registered, six this year vs nine last year, they competition may be fierce. Committed racers have been making sure that they have ride. Each skipper will be bringing their A team. Might be needed. Last year, winds blew quite strongly, making the skipper forego the use of spinnakers on some of the downwind legs. Given the unusual weather patterns so far this year, its anyone's guess as the weather we will encounter.
