The event will be the newly formed team's second visit to California this year after their maiden win at the Southern California Yachting Association (SCYA) Mid-Winter Regatta in San Diego in early February.

Land Rover BAR Gladiator is a partnership between Land Rover BAR, led by Sir Ben Ainslie, and Langley Holdings plc's Gladiator TP52 sailing team on the international TP52 racing circuit - itself being used as a build up to the 36th America's Cup.

For the NOOD regatta, seasoned TP52 helm Tony Langley will again be on the wheel, sailing alongside crew members including:

Rio Olympic Finn gold medallist Giles Scott, Andrew McLean as navigator, David Carr will provide power in the cockpit, Nick Hutton on mid-bow and Matt Cornwell on the bow.

Land Rover BAR Academy sailor Matt Brushwood will also join the team in San Diego. He sails as bowman/floater on the multihull GC32, but will be a grinder aboard Gladiator.
