The Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta at Marblehead Race Week was held July 22-25. On the regatta’s busy “Tinker’s Line” racecourse, local ace and National Sailing Hall of Famer Jud Smith won the J/70 fleet again (as well as the J/70 Northeast Championship), thanks to a string of race wins on Friday (they won four of six races altogether), but the standout performance was that of the top Corinthian team led by longtime boat partners Jim Raisides and Charlie Pendelton. With their teammates on Bad Hombres, Raisides and Pendelton sailed one of their best regattas ever, capped with a race win on Saturday. The outstanding performance in a fleet deep with talented and professional sailors put them second behind Smith in the overall standings, but first in the Corinthian-scored sub-division.
