The non-profit boating organization received the Robie Pierce Award.
The event will be held in May 2020 in Annapolis, Md.
The group seeks to shed its reputation as a sport for “stuffy, 60-year-old men.”
RIB manufacturer Highfield Boats will provide media boat for NOOD regattas in 2019.
The biennial event is scheduled for March 6-8.
