A great fleet turnout, with mild to choppy seas, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were behaving well through out the small boat portion, with only two DNFs (Did Not Finish) recorded, one due to incorrectly set gestures and the other due to a failing navigation HUD. The seas turned slightly choppy during the big boat portion, as two more DNFs were recorded, both due to skippers crashing on region crossings. The spectators on hand, on the small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, and on the islands in the Genip, Ziziphus, and Eden Auk regions, were reveling in the great racing on display from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was comprised of a majority of eight Bandit IFs, six sailing single-handed and two sailing with crew respectively. Three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Nacra 17s, two TMS Flying Shadows, two TMS Star Class, two Bandit 25Rs, and one Quest Melges-24 rounded out the small boat fleet. Meanwhile, this weeks big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea CCW (Counter-Clockwise) course, was comprised of a majority of five Wildwind Open 60s. Two TMS Pacha 110s, one TMS One Design 65, one Bandit 50/3, one ACA33, and one Wildwind AC-62 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.
