Created in 1988, the National Offshore One-Design Regatta was an immediate success with its unique concept of racing level in larger production boats, its unrivaled post-racing social experiences and its professional race management. The Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series grew nationally and remains the most popular weekend racing series in the United States. The Sailing World Regatta Series today encompasses more than larger one-design race boats. Embracing popular fleets at each location, the Regatta Series now features many different boat types: dinghies, multihulls, and keelboats that race under established handicap systems. Sponsors and partners continue to enjoy nightly event-based activation at each yacht club with a targeted and passionate sailing audience.
