We had our first fleet race regatta for the recently released Wildwind RC-44 for this weeks North Sea Thursday Regatta. We had a nice turnout for both races, and some great sailing weather with no crashes. The only crash of note was when Joshua tickled a corner right before the finish line, of which he was a DNF in the results.

The first race took place on the North Sea Copacabana course, newly created by Julia, one of the North Sea Race Directors. This new course was quite quick with the RC-44 as it features some nice reaching legs. The fleet got off to a great start, with everyone racing in tight corners but no fouling committed. Beane was first over the line with Arya right behind. I was was next across, followed by Sue, Cor, Joshua and then Sunnysin. Arya and I both wound up overtaking Beane during the run of the course. Joshua and Sunnsyin, not to be left out in passing, overtook Cor and Sue.

The second race took place on the North Sea Extreme course, also created by Julia. This course, which is one of the longer in the North Sea catalog of courses, also proved quick for the RC-44’s as it also features some nice reaching legs. Once again, a great start was had by the fleet as Arya was first across the line with Beane right behind. Cor was next, with Joshua, myself and finally Sue following. This was the race that Joshua tickled the corner on and wound up recording a DNF.
