What a fantastic Regatta !
Slick sailing, fantastic people and great ambiance.
This Open Regatta was perhaps our biggest to date with 20 boats taking part, but at least three of them crewed, perhaps more and a whole lot of speculators coming to watch some of the best sailing in SL.
An excellent race with no crashes. 20 boats of all shapes and size on a course that crosses itself and no crashes, how cool is that!
Race 1 was the North Sea Olympic Course
Race 2 was the 3 laps of the North Sea Short Loop Course
Yours truly messed up in the first running of the second race. I didn’t turn on the multiple laps on the line, so we all set off for 3 laps and after a little while, we realised that race was over when it was obviously not… silly me. So we restarted and did it again. Stopping the 1st race using an unconventional method 🙂
The second time was much better and 3 or 4 sailors who crashed or messed up their camera in the first effort, were happy to try again. We did have 2 DNF unfortunately. It is a really tricky course as the boats are on top of each other around the tight corners.
Well done to all !! Thanks for participating 🙂
