Clipper Shabab Oman 2 Wins North Sea Feeder Race!
The Dykstra Naval Architects designed and Damen Shipyard built clipper Shabab Oman 2 is proud to be first in Class and overall winner of the North Sea Feeder Race, and winner of the Friendship Trophy, part of the Liberty Tall Ships Regatta 2019.
The relatively calm seas and passing of several weather fronts made the race very interesting for the tacticians on board. The crew has done a great job in maintaining good speeds and tacking upwind into the Skagenrak.
Dykstra Naval Architects' Thomas van Es, is proud to have been part of crew of the Shabab Oman 2 during this race, where they shared knowledge and experiences throughout the voyage. Following the end of the North Sea Feeder Race, the Tall Ships will join up with the start of the Tall Ships Races 2019 in Aalborg, Denmark. This year, Europe's largest, free, family festival will visit north-west Europe during the summer, with a fleet of over 70 international Tall and Small Ships. The three-leg event will see vessels sailing from Aalborg, Denmark to Fredrikstad, Norway.
We wish the Shabab Oman 2 and her crew all the best for the upcoming STI Tall Ship Races and hope many people get to visit this remarkable ship and her hospitable crew!
