This week, the North Sea Open Regatta became the Trudeau Handicap Regatta as we held our third event for the Eden Trudeau Regatta Week. We had a fantastic turnout of Trudeau Classic Yachts in the fleet along with spectators gathering around the usual spots in the North Sea and Eden. We once again restarted all the North Sea estate sims 3 hours before the race to great results, as sailing was smooth with no crashes due to sim performance or crossings. We had large of spectators show up in Eden Albatros, Eden Puffin, Breadnut, and Ziziphus to view the classic yacht composed fleet.

This weeks special fleet, racing three races on North Sea Olympic Course (long), was comprised of a majority of four Patchouge IIs. Two Francois Jacques, two Trudeau Ones, two 12 Metres, and one Leetle Cat II made up the remainder of the fleet. The fleet along with the Trudeau collection, rezzed by Eden and North Sea estate owner Elbag Gable in the Eden Puffin region, created a truly elegant classic flair for the day.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta, the last for 2016, saw a nice turnout with some smooth sim weather. The sims behaved well for everyone as we now restart the entire North Sea estate regions three hours before race time, helping settle any hiccups incurred from the weekends. Spectators also made another good showing today along the usual places in Eden Albatros, Eden Puffin, Ziziphus, and in Breadnut, cheering our racers on as they sailed past. This weeks fleet was an entirely IF affair, which made for some exciting racing as the fleet kept relatively tight packed throughout both courses.
