Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, rising to 21 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were well behaved for most as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Both DNFs, in both races, were from the same skipper crashing from her internet connection failing and then removing her boat. The crowds that assembled on the lighthouse observation deck on the island in the Ziziphus region, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, indulged in the fresh fleet-foiled feline fun on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Triple Pink and the North Sea Copacabana Reverse courses, was made up of seven The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows in the first race. The second race saw four single-handed Flying Shadows merge into two crewed boats, with another skipper switching to his TMS Nacra 17.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the last Cat Fight in The North Sea of October, 2022. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, rising to 21 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF, occurring during the first race, was due to a boat being removed after the first mark. The crowds that gathered along 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, delighted in the stirring fleet-foiled feline fury on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Copacabana Reverse and North Sea Torpedo courses, was made up of five The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, four sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively during the first race. As the wind picked up for the second race, a single-handed skipper opted to pick up crew for her Flying Shadow.

This weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta took place on another beautiful Saturday afternoon in April. This time we had a fleet of nine Bandit IF’s at the start. One of the nine Bandit IFs had crew. The North Sea behaved well.

Today, the wind came from the southwest. We had a great start. A group of six boats immediately took the lead. At the same time as the start, a tenth skipper jumped into his boat to maintain a pursuit course. At the first mark we had a group of seven skippers. Approaching Ziziphus, we had a front runner. He was followed by a loner and a group of five skippers. At Ziziphus, the fleet split in two. One half sailed east of the island, while the other half took the western route. A skipper had technical problems and had to drop out. This left three skippers who would compete for second place.

At the start of the second race, we had two skippers doing something for the fleet. This was negated, as she returned to the first mark a little later than others. The Race would be a battle between two skippers. these would soon distance themselves from the fleet. The chase of seven pursuers together for a while. However, the group was quickly divided between loners and a group of three. These would compete for fourth place

There were three DNFs (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

This weeks North Sea Triple Threat Regatta took place on a beautiful Thursday afternoon in March with the wind coming from the Southwest again with a beautiful sail. Today we had five Bandit 22 LTEs and five Bandit IFS on the starting line. A Bandit IF had crew on board.

We had two beautiful races. At the 22s there was a skipper “Lord and Master” during both races. A skipper ended up in the “Circle of the Dragon” during the pre-start. At the IFs, a skipper was too eager and started early. As a result, a catch-up race had to be made.

There were no DNFs (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Race Notes:
Alex (Alex0730 Resident) did hit the fire of “The Circle of the Dragon” in the Pre-Start of the second race

“During the start there will be a circle in the water that we call “The Circle of the Dragon”. Everyone stays out of this circle until 10 seconds before the start signal. When you are to early in the circle, then I will add 30 second penalty to you finish time.“

Therefore Alex finish time was added with 30 seconds.
