Calm seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were well behaved for most as only three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day, all during the small boat portion. Of those three DNFs, only one was from a region border crash, with the remaining two due to skippers hitting region corners. The large crowd gathered on the small race dock and Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier, in the Eden Jakana region, reveled in the great sailing on display from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Triple Pink course, was made up of a majority of seven Bandit 22 LTEs. Four The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, two sailing with crew and two sailing single-handed respectively, four Bandit IFs, three TMS Nacra 17s, one Bandit 25r, and one Quest M-24 rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Copacabana course, was made up of a split majority of five Wildwind Open 60s and five TMS One Design 65s. One TMS Volvo Open 70, one Wildwind AC-62, and one Wildwind RC-44r rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Edit: The results have been updated after a skipper confirmed they sailed an incorrect course during the small boat portion.
