The last Thursday afternoon in February was beautiful with good sailing weather, wind from the southwest, and a thunderstorm in the air here and there. Today we had two Bandit 22 LTEs and three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class and four Bandit IFs at the starting line. Later, another 22 joined the group. A 22 and a Star Class had crew on board

We had two great races. It soon became clear that in the Star Class a skipper showed the other skippers how to win a competition. With the 22s and the IFs, the races were exciting until the end.

There were two DNFs (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Race Director: Daenerys
Assistant Race Directors: Tamarushka, and Cryptic

Wind: 230° (SW) 18kts

Wind: 220° (SW) 18kts

Note:
Did Not Finish (DNF) = number of finish +1
Disqualified (DSQ) = number of finish + number of DNFs + 1
Did Not Start (DNS) = number of start +1

Today’s winners on the TMS Star Class were Emi (Emileigh Starbrook), with Nicole (Nicole Myhre) second, and Max (Maximiliano Szondi) in third place.

Today’s winners on the Bandit 22 LTE were Ester (citacg Resident), with Sea (filax Carter) second, and Moonglownight (Moonglownight Resident) in third place.

Today’s winners on the Bandit IF were Jack (Jacquimo Resident), with Julie (JulieRoyale Resident) second, and Juicy (juice651 Resident) in third place.

Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

If a tie still remains between two or more boats, they shall be ranked in order of their scores in the last race.
