A total of nine Flying Tigers were registered for the 2014 San Diego NOOD presented by Sperry Top-Siders. The five FT 10’s played just a few miles outside the bay taking advantage of the good breeze and downwind waves. Meanwhile, the four FT 7.5’s raced out of Coronado Yacht Club in south bay where the kelp is limited and the ocean breeze is still present.

Typical Southern California conditions brought 10-12 knots of steady NW breeze and warm temperatures. Paul and Julie McPherson on Niuhi brought home the gold in the FT 10 class followed by John Harrop on Justice. With the recent addition of three FT 10’s into Dana Point the FT 10 class is once again bringing in good numbers and will be sailing the LBRW as a class.

In the South Bay Tom Hirsh on Flying Tiger Boats Racing finished atop followed by David Cattle on Tigress. Big shout out to David and crew for stepping on the FT 7.5 for the first time Saturday morning and bringing some good competition to the fleet.

Thanks to SDYC, CYC, Sperry Top-Sider and everyone else who made this such a great event.
