This weeks North Sea Thursday Regatta was a change of pace as the Trudeau Patchogue II was dusted off and raced again. The sim weather was great as no DNF’s or crashes were recorded, showing the Patch II’s stability still holds. We also had a nice turnout as we saw 8 racers over the two races.

The wind was slightly slower than usual and a little gusty for the first race, on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), with a 15 knot south westerly wind with 15 degrees of variation and 2 knot gusts. The fleet got off to a slow start as Christine crossed first at 00:00:16. Dess was next to cross at 00:00:31 with myself crossing right after her at 00:00:35. Joshua was next at 00:00:58, followed by Gabi, at 00:01:13, Gail, at 00:01:27, and Burton, 00:01:14. Christine held her lead up front, with Joshua following her line down past the island in the Sloe region and taking up second in the fleet. I took advantage of the clean air closest to the the starboard lay line and tacked west early right after the start and took up third in the fleet. Dess wound up finding herself in the middle of the pack with Gabi, Burton, and Gail behind her. Christine held her lead and crossed first, taking line honors. Josh was next across, with myself crossing after. Dess was next, with Gabi, Burton, and Gail following.

The wind picked up to it’s normal speed of 18 knots with no gusts for the second race, on the North Sea Manta course. The fleet also got off to a faster start with Christine crossing near perfect at 00:00:02. Dess was next to cross at 00:00:07 followed by Gabi at 00:00:08. Wolfhard was next, crossing at 00:00:23, followed by Gail at 00:00:30. Burton was next across at 00:00:52. Christine once again lead the fleet up front with Wolfhard making moves to pass both Dess and Gabi to take up position right behind Christine. Gabi made her own move to pass Dess to take up third leaving Dess in the middle of the pack. Gail was next holding her own towards the rear with Burton not far behind her. Christine would hold her lead until the finish, crossing first and taking line honors. Wolfhard had been nipping at her stern and crossed second, a mere 4 seconds behind Christine. Gabi followed, crossing third, with Dess crossing fourth. Gail was next to cross, with Burton crossing last.
