North Sea Open Regatta – Feb 28th 2018

The North Sea Open Regatta saw a great turn out for both races this week. The sim weather played well today as LL got a handle on the DDoS attacks from earlier this week, as we had no DNFs from crashes on the day. Both small boat and large boat fleets had great turnouts with 15 in the small boat race and 12 in the big boat race. Spectators once again packed the dock in the Eden Puffin region, as well as the beaches of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region.

The small boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Circle course, was made up of a split majority of five Bandit 25s and five Bandit IFs. Three TMS Flying Shadows, one TMS Nacra 17, and one Quest Melges-24 made up the remainder of the small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Outer Inner Loop (NS_OIL Rev1) course, was made up of majority of four TMS One Design 65s. Two Wildwind Open 60s, two Wildwind RC-44rs, two TMS Pacha 110s, one TMS Cafe Del Mar 75, and one TMS Ushuaia made up the remainder of the big boat fleet.

This week also saw the handicap for the Bandit 25 revised from 0.75 to 0.78. All handicaps can be viewed here North Sea Handicap Table.
