Smooth sim weather and and some fun racing featured in this weeks Trudeau Patch II Class races in the North Sea. We had a nice crowd gathered on the committee boat dock in Breadnut along with some revelers on the beach at Eden Alabtros to watch these fun boats race. The sims themselves behaved well as we had no crashes on the day.

Race 1, on the newly created NS-CCW course (courtesy of Julia), saw the fleet get off to a great start as everyone was across the start line before 22 seconds ticked off the race clock. Petra, with Peachie as crew, got things started as she crossed the start line first at 00:00:03. Peter was next to cross the start line at 00:00:10, followed by Red, at 00:00:12, and Joshua, at 00:00:16. Moon was next across the start line at 00:00:18, followed by myself, with Kaos as crew, at 00:00:21. Red unfortunately had a mis-configured race ID, and didn’t get recorded by the race line, noticing this she moored on the course side of the line and took a DNF. Petra took full advantage of her great start and lead the fleet for the entire course. As these boats do balance slightly better with crew, I was able to make up some lost ground on the rest of the fleet and pass both Peter and Moon, who were racing single handed. Joshua lay before me as we kept up a tight race, changing positions several times. Petra, with Peachie, crossed the finish line first, recording line honors. Joshua and I, with Kaos, would be next, recording a photo finish as I crossed the finish line one second ahead of Joshua. Peter was next to cross the finish line followed by Moon.

Race 2, on the North Sea Trapezoid course, saw another great fleet start as everyone was across the start line before 14 seconds ticked off the race clock. Peter got things started with a nearly perfect 00:00:01 across the start line. Red, now with Carlota as crew, crossed the start line next at 00:00:06. Joshua, now with Gabi as crew, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:10, followed by myself, with Kaos as crew, at 00:00:13. Joshua, with Gabi, and myself, with Kaos, both quickly jumped to the head of the fleet as we both took lines to the windward side of the fleet in clean air. Peter was next, sailing single handed, and Red, with Carlota, was close behind. This order would hold for the rest of the course, as Joshua, with Gabi, crossed the finish line first, recording line honors, as I crossed the line second, with Kaos. Peter was next to cross the finish line followed by Red, with Carlota.
