Race Ends - Vessels head for Ijmuiden
The North Sea Tall Ships Regatta came to an end today with the fleet now all heading towards IJmuiden in preparation for the Sail in for Sail Amsterdam on Thursday 19 August. While in IJmuiden the crews will enjoy a crew party and a festival atmosphere with grand firework display before they depart for Amsterdam.

A number of vessels have already arrived in IJmuiden, including Shabab Oman (Oman), Santa Maria Manuela (Portugal), Wylde Swan (Netherlands) and Pelican of London (UK).

Placings are still very much provisional until all ships are in IJmuiden and have handed in their declaration forms, but at the moment the leaders are:

In Class A, Stad Amsterdam (Netherlands) is in the lead with Eendracht (Netherlands) in second place and Oosterschelde (Netherlands) in third place.

In Class B, Tecla (Netherlands) is the winner. 

In Class C, Rona II (UK) is in the lead with Riyal (Netherlands) in second and Black Diamond of Durham (UK) in third place.

In Class D, Lietuva (Lithuania) is in the lead with Urania (Netherlands) in second place and Endorfina (Poland) in third.

The North Sea Tall Ships Regatta is organised by Sail Training International.

As you say, the results are currently provisional. The Race Committee will be studying all results from the Comms officer, and declaration forms from vessels and establishing final positions. Not all vessels are expected in IJmuiden today and therefore final results will not be known until tomorrow. Thanks for the interest.

I accept that current race finish positions are very much provisional and I may not have the full facts but I do not understand why, according to your yellow brick tracking, Black Diamond and Rona II were almost a carbon copy on track from Hartlepool except for a small triangular sail by Rona II towards the end.   How did Rona II manage to be 186 miles ahead of Black Diamond and Riyal before corrected distance?

It looks like Wylde Swan's progress over the last three days disappeard... where is it?
She had sailed 280 miles (corrected) on the 14th, and then some errors were corrected... and she was down to 54. I doubt she would have sailed so short a distance even if she sailed straight from start to finish. And she did pass a few waypoints.
