Calm to choppy seas, with a light fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, rising to 21 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were behaved for most as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Both DNFs were attributed to the same skipper, as she crashed on a region border in the first race, and crashed in the middle of a region in the second race. The crowds that gathered on the shores of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, reveled in the energetic fleet-foiled feline fury on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Triple Pink and North Sea Extreme Reverse courses, was made up of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, two sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, during the first race. One single-handed skipper opted to take on crew, on her Flying Shadow, for the second race.
