Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the first Cat Fight in The North Sea of November, 2022. With a fresh breeze of 21 knots out of the southwest, calming to 18 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were mostly well behaved as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. One DNF, occurring during the first race, was due to a skipper pulling his boat from frustration. The remaining two DNFs, split between both races, were due to a skipper crashing while crossing across region corners. The crowds that gathered on the beaches on 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 fit of fleet-foiled feline fervor on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Snipe and North Sea Copacabana courses, was made up of seven The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, six sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, during the first race. One skipper opted for his TMS Nacra 17 to round out the weeks catamaran fleet during the second race.

Another week of calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the last Cat Fight in The North Sea for August, 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 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 skipper’s boat spewing script errors resulting in her pulling the boat. 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, reveled in the frenetic fleet-foiled feline fury on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Double Loop and North Sea Snipe courses, was made up of six The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, four sailing single-handed and two crewed respectively, for the first race. One skipper switched to their TMS Nacra 17 for the second race.

Calm seas, with a light fleet turnout, highlighted the last1 Cat Fight in The North Sea for 2021. With this being the last weekend before Christmas, many of our usual skippers had to bow out for real life as holiday festivities are under way. The North Sea regions were behaved for our skippers, as the only DNF (Did Not Finish) on they day, was due to a skipper pulling his boat after he mis-timed his start.
