This Saturday afternoon, we had a fleet of eight Bandit IFs at the start. Two Bandit IFs had crew.
The North Sea regions behaved well and even in the Eden waters, there was not a cloud in the sky.
We had a good start with five boats together. The fleet stayed together until reaching the Appleberry region. A skipper already had a large lead, so that the fleet was no longer able to catch up.
The second race also went well. The fleet of six boats stayed together as far as the river in the Eden Kittiwake region. When exiting the river, a skipper had made a fuss of the fleet and another skipper had fallen behind. On the way to the last mark of the day, the next group had caught up with the front runner again.
We had one DNF (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.
More pictures after the results.
