Organizers completed multiple races for most classes on Saturday as the Annapolis stop of the Helly Hansen National Offshore One-Design series finally got underway.

Jeff Todd was among several Annapolis-area skippers that performed well in the challenging conditions with 20-knot winds greeting the fleet of 153 boats in 12 classes.

Todd steered Hot Toddy to victory in two of four races held in J/22 class, which has attracted 15 entries. Todd’s team added a second and third to total seven points, six fewer than Brad Julian on Yard Sail.

Winds faded and shifted as the day went along, forcing crews to consistently change gears. Annapolis professional Mike Beasley was the winner of the North Sails Doublehanded Distance Race that took nine boats on a 20-nautical mile course around government marks on the Chesapeake Bay.
