It seems that the key to bringing Michigan’s biggest one-design regatta back from the brink was to give Sailing World the flick. With the NOOD out and the new Bayview One-Design (BOD) in, entries have doubled from the final Detroit NOOD, to over 200 on the scratch sheet. We’ll be racing aboard an Ultimate 20 on the new circle inside the Detroit River, and we’ll learn just what Karl Kuspa and his team did to shake things up at a regatta that had seen declining participation for the past five years. Check out the BOD website for details on this new Midwest classic.
Thanks to the Black-Eyed Peas for the title, and for a great addition to every stripper’s playlist.
