Three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, two Bandit 25s, one Quest 2M, and one TMS Nacra 17 made up the remainder of the small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Extreme course, was made up of a majority of three TMS Ushuaias.

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta featured another great fleet and spectator turnout. The small boat portion saw a fleet of 17 boats while the big boat portion had another 13 boats. Spectators again crowded the small race dock in the Eden Puffin region , as well as the beaches in the Eden Alabatros region, and Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. The sims themselves behaved well as we only saw three Did Not Finishes (DNF) on the day. Plus, this Open Regatta was the first race that Daenerys was the lead Race Director for. We congratulate Daenerys after completing several weeks of Race Director training in The North Sea.
