This week, the North Sea Open Regatta became the Trudeau Handicap Regatta as we held our third event for the Eden Trudeau Regatta Week. We had a fantastic turnout of Trudeau Classic Yachts in the fleet along with spectators gathering around the usual spots in the North Sea and Eden. We once again restarted all the North Sea estate sims 3 hours before the race to great results, as sailing was smooth with no crashes due to sim performance or crossings. We had large of spectators show up in Eden Albatros, Eden Puffin, Breadnut, and Ziziphus to view the classic yacht composed fleet.

This weeks special fleet, racing three races on North Sea Olympic Course (long), was comprised of a majority of four Patchouge IIs. Two Francois Jacques, two Trudeau Ones, two 12 Metres, and one Leetle Cat II made up the remainder of the fleet. The fleet along with the Trudeau collection, rezzed by Eden and North Sea estate owner Elbag Gable in the Eden Puffin region, created a truly elegant classic flair for the day.

The Francois Jacques Class Race kicked off the Eden Trudeau Regatta Week with a nice turnout of spectators and some great sailing sim weather. The elegant Trudeau Francois Jacques was featured in today’s races and plenty of spectators turned up in Eden Alabtros, Eden Puffin, Breadnut, and Ziziphus to watch. The sims themselves, restarted just three hours previous to the race start (our now normal procedure for race days in The North Sea estate), lay calm and provided for some smooth racing.

This weeks Trudeau Classic Regatta, in The North Sea, saw a great turnout with a nicely mixed fleet. This weeks fleet consisted of four 12 Metre’s, two Patchogue II’s, a Hepcat, a Leetle Cat II, and a Francois Jacques, that was switched out for a T-12 by it’s owner, Elbag, for the second race.

The first race, on NS-SOL-13B, saw some spirited competition among the 12 Metre’s with everyone chasing Peter after he passed Cole on the first upwind beat. The rest of the 12 Metre’s remained tight all the up to the finish. The small Patchogue II pack also some some tight racing as Asami and Omar were close for the entire course.

The second race, on North Sea Butterfly, saw Elbag switch out his Francois Jacques for a T-12, however RL came knocking and he recorded a DNF as he had to leave. The rest of the fleet saw some exciting racing between Peter and I, right from the start. The sound of Peter’s sails were in my ears the entire course as he stuck tight with me, finishing a mere 20 seconds behind me.
