Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. With a moderate breeze of 15 knots out of the southwest, The North Sea regions were well behaved as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Both DNFs, occurring one a piece in each race, were from skippers crashing as they crossed over region corners. The crowds that gathered at the lighthouses on the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, delighted in a peppy display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea 01 and North Sea 02 courses, was made up of a majority of nine Bandit 22 LTEs. Four Bandit IFs, three sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet in the first race. In the second race, a Bandit 22 LTE skipper opted to use his Bandit IF instead.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were again generally well behaved as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, occurring during the small boat portion, was from a skipper pulling her boat after her navigation HUD ceased functioning.

The final DNF, also occurring during the big boat portion, was from a skipper pulling her boat after a collision caused her boat to cross over region corners. The crowds that gathered at the lighthouses on the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, savored a great display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Trapezoid course, was made up of a majority of five Bandit 22 LTEs.
