A nice spectator turnout and mild sim sailing weather highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. A nice crowd gathered on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier, as well as on the shores of the island in the Ziziphus region, to watch the frolicking foiling felines this week. The regions of the North Sea were mostly accommodating to the sailors in the fleet, as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day, all in the first race. Two of the DNFs were attributed to crashes with the skippers pulling their boats afterword, and the third DNF was due to a skipper hitting a region corner. This weeks fleet, racing on the newly created North Sea Extreme Reverse1 and North Sea WC Reach 12 courses, was comprised of a majority of eight The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, six single-handed boats and two crewed boats respectively. Two TMS Nacra 17s made up the remainder of the fleet.
