Stormy seas and a nice fleet turnout featured during this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. The regions of the North Sea were well behaved except for the Sloe region. The Sloe region had an appetite for sailors, as it devoured every boat that entered it during the first race, resulting in the first race being abandoned entirely. After the Sloe region was restarted, the second race got under way to some much better sim sailing weather, with everyone finishing without a crash. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Copacabana Reverse and North Sea Butterfly courses, consisted of a majority of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows. At the onset of the first race, every Flying Shadow was crewed, but the second race saw things switch up as two crewed and one single-handed Flying Shadow competed. One TMS Nacra 17 made up the remainder of this weeks fleet-foiled feline fleet.

Today’s winner was Daenerys (blondij Resident), with Lalia (LaliaCasau Resident) second, and Julia (JuliaSalzano Resident in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Race 1 was abandoned due to the Sloe region crashing every racer in the fleet.


Palani () was disqualified (DSQ) during the second race for sailing an incorrect course, he missed the course mark in the Nectarine region.


As only one race was held today, final placing reflects the results from the second race without points.
