Final Results now available

18 August 2010

Final Results now available
The final results for the North Sea Tall Ships Regatta are now available with some minor adjustments to mileage following the receipt of all race declaration forms. This can be downloaded here.

As this was the first time that Sail Training International had run a regatta based on distance travelled, the captains met this afternoon to report on their experience. All captains agreed that it had been an interesting and different race that they had enjoyed. 

This afternoon the sun came out making it beautiful conditions for the public to enjoy the Tall Ships fleet, as more ships continued to arrive. Tomorrow the entire length of the Nordzee Canal is likely to be crowded with people as they watch the hundreds of vessels sail past on their way to Amsterdam. 

Stad Amsterdam will lead the parade which is due to start at around 1000hrs local.

Hi Khajidu,

We decided to allow mileages covered on accepted legs to stand. We have learnt a lot from this 'experimental' Regatta and will be taking lessons forward to any further similar event.

Thanks for your interest.

Mike.

Mike,

Thank you for your answer. I knew it could only be something like this, and I wanted to make sure. However, I thought she would be disqualified because of this.

Hi Khajidu,

Thanks for your comment about Wylde Swan and I apologise for the delay in replying. There was a problem with the reporting of which waypoints were rounded by Wylde Swan. In fact she only rounded waypoint B although she spent a considerable time trying to reach waypoint G. Hence the final mileage shown in the results. Sorry for any confusion caused.

Mike. (Race Director)

As I commented earlier, Wylde Swan appears to have sailed much less than the rest of the fleet (she would have sailed only the distance from start to waypoint B, from the final results), although she passed a few waypoints (at least B, G and H) and finished the race. Other ships who followed the same path sailed much more. Does anybody know what happened? It looks like it happened also to another ship.
