This weeks Trudeau Classic Regatta, in The North Sea, saw slightly choppy sim weather for the first race but cleared up for the second with some great sailing. The fleet was comprised of two 12 Metre’s, two Patchogue II’s, and a Leetle Cat II.
During the first race, racing was tight between Arya and I, on our 12 Metre’s, until a bad sim crossing caused my DNF. Arya was ahead at this point, on the final leg of North Sea’s NS-SOL-13C, and sailed on to a great finish. Racing was tight as well between Asami and Petra in their Patch II’s, with Petra finally passing Asami and pulling away on the second leg of the course.
In the second race, North Sea Butterfly, Arya and I both got off to great starts and were neck and neck for the entire race. Asami went as crew for Petra in this race, in Petra’s Patch II, and some spirited competition from PeterC in his Leetle Cat.
This week also marks the introduction of prize plaques for the Trudeau Classic Regatta. These will be awarded to the first through third place finishers in each race.
