Solstad Team Repeats as NOOD Champions

Berit and Karen Solstad round the turning mark in one of the races in the 2016 Marblehead NOOD regatta held on July 29-31.   The sister's consistency throughout the regatta was good enough to finish one point ahead of Bart Snow and his newly launched version of Annie B.
