Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, occurring during the first race, was due to a skipper crashing while crossing over regions corners. The final DNF, also occurring during the first race, was from a skipper pulling her boat during the middle of the race.
