Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the last Cat Fight in The North Sea for September, 2022. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, turning from the northwest during the second race, The North Sea regions were well behaved as no DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. 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, were delighted by the feverish fleet-foiled feline furor on display from this weeks skippers.

One WildWind AC-622 rounded out this weeks catamaran fleet in the first race. One Flying Shadow skipper opted for her WildWind AC-45 for the second race.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the first Cat Fight in The North Sea for August, 2022. With a moderate breeze of 15 knots out of the southwest, building to a fresh breeze of 18 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Script issues were behind both DNFs, one in each race, as skippers pulled their boats in both instances, when their boat scripts stopped responding. The crowds that gathered on the beaches 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, cheered on the frantic fleet-foiled feline flurry on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Half Mane and North Sea Extreme Reverse courses, was made up of a majority of five The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, four sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively. One WildWind AC-62, and one WildWind AC-45 rounded out this weeks catamaran fleet in the first race.
