Calm seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. With a moderate breeze of 15 knots out of the southwest, rising to a fresh breeze of 18 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were well behaved as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, occurring during the first race, was from a skipper pulling his boat towards the end of the race when his crew decided they needed to go dancing instead. The second DNF, occurring during the second race, was from a skipper crashing while crossing over region corners. The crowds that gathered on the shores of the island in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, took in a lively display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Bowline and North Sea Bowline Reverse courses, was made up of a majority of ten Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, two sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet in the first race. For the second race, the crewed Bandit IF team left to go and dance during the end of the first race, while two Bandit 22 LTE skippers joined the fleet.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The North Sea regions were generally well behaved, as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Two of those DNFs were due to skippers crashing while crossing over region corners. The remaining DNF was from a skipper pulling her boat in the second race after frustration from getting lost on the course. The crowds that gathered on the shores of the island in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on an electric display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta Reverse and North Sea Bowline Reverse courses, was made up of a majority of nine Bandit 22 LTEs. One Bandit 25, and one Bandit 50/3 rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.
