This weeks Trudeau Patchogue II Class Racing was the final event in the Eden Trudeau Regatta Week. We saw a great turnout with storm of sim in the first race but clearing weather in the second race. We also saw another great spectator turnout, with many showing up along the beach in the Eden Albatros region, at the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, the committee boat dock in the Breadnut region, and along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region.

The first race, on the North Sea Butterfly course, got off to a great start. However, towards the final leg of the course, as every racer entered the Nectarine region, they crashed. All recorded DNFs and it was decided to abandon race 1 with no points awarded. The second race, on the North Sea Copacabana course, saw the sims performing marvelously as no DNFs were recorded and close exciting racing prevailed.

Today’s winner was Cryptic (Cryptic Resident), with Kurt (Kurt Calamity) second, and Asami (Alisiea Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Note:
During race 1, the entire fleet crashed while entering the Nectarine region along the final leg of the course, subsequently recording DNF’s, and thus race 1 was abandonded with no points awarded. As such, todays regatta is therefore a 1 race event without points having to be awarded to determine the podium finshers as they are decided from the finish line order.
