Calm seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots coming out of the southwest, the North Sea regions were well behaved for most as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. All three of the DNFs, two recorded in the first race and one in the second race respectively, were due to skippers crashing while crossing region corners. The crowds that gathered on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, and along the shores of the island in the Ziziphus region, cheered on some frenetic fleet-foiled feline frenzy on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet started off sailing on the North Sea SS-01 (Summer Sailstice 01) course for the first race. The first race fleet was made up of a majority of ten The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, seven sailing crewed and three sailing single-handed respectively, and one lone TMS Nacra 17. The second race saw the fleet sailing on the North Sea Manta course. The second race fleet composition changed slightly with a majority of eight TMS Flying Shadows, seven sailing crewed and one sailing single-handed respectively, two TMS Nacra 17s, and one WildWind AC-45.

Today’s winner was Daenerys (blondij Resident), with Isa (isab DeCuir) second, and Jenna (jnx1e Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Isa (isab DeCuir) and Moon (moonglownight Resident) both finished the second race tied at the finishing line with a time of 09:20. As their final time also remains tied, as they both sailed the same boat, Rule A7 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing is used to score this tie:

If boats are tied at the finishing line or if a handicap or rating system is used and boats have equal corrected times, the points for the place for which the boats have tied and for the place(s) immediately below shall be added together and divided equally. Boats tied for a race prize shall share it or be given equal prizes.

Therefore, both Isa and Moon receive 2.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 2 and 3, added together and divided equally.


Sea (filax Carter), Julia (Geneer Gynoid), and Sirius (Sirius Rosca) all finished tied with 17 points. Rule A8.1 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to break this tie:

If there is a series score tie between two or more boats, each boat’s race scores shall be listed in order of best to worst, and at the first point(s) where there is a difference the tie shall be broken in favour of the boat(s) with the best score(s). No excluded scores shall be used.

Skipper Best Finish Next Best Finish
filax Carter 6 11
Geneer Gynoid 7 10
Sirius Rosca 8 9

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Sea’s favor with having a sixth place finish over Julia’s seventh place and Sirius’s eighth place finishes as their best.

Choppy to smooth seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were slightly choppy throughout the small boat portion, as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) occurred. Two of those DNFs were due to skippers crossing on region corners and crashing, with the remainder from a skipper pulling her boat after her connection started to have upwards of 40% packet loss. Conditions calmed a bit for the big boat portion, as two more DNFs were recorded. One of those two DNFs was due to a skipper’s WildWind losing it’s WWC race wind, with the remainder from a skipper crashing while crossing on a region corner. The crowds that gathered along the shores of the islands in the Genip and Ziziphus regions, as well as on the small racing dock and Posiedon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on some exciting fleet racing on display from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Bowline course, was comprised of a majority of seven Bandit 22 LTEs. Five The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, four sailing single-handed and one sailing crewed respectively, two Bandit IFs, and one TMS Laser One rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing a two lap affair on the North Sea Long Loop course, was comprised of a majority of five TMS I-Mocca 60s. Three WildWind Open 60s, two TMS Ushuaias, and one WildWind RC-44r rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Julie (JulieRoyale Resident), Amy Pond (Montserrat Naidoo), and Red (RedHeadJO Resident) all finished tied with 25 points. As they all finished with the exact same finishes in both portions, a DNF (Did Not Finish) during the small boat portion and a DNS (Did Not Start) during the big boat portion, neither Rule A8.1 or Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking their tie. Therefore, Julie, Amy, and Red all remain tied in fifteenth place overall.

A beautiful Thursday afternoon in April was a nice day for the North Sea Triple Threat. With good wind coming from the south west again, The North Sea regions behaved well and there was not a cloud in the sky. Today we had seven Bandit 22 LTEs and six The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class on the starting line. One Star and two Bandit 22s had crew on board. One of the Bandit 22 skippers decided not to participate in the competition, so we only had six Bandit 22s.

Today we had two great matches. There were tough battles between all the skippers.

We had three DNFs (Did Not Finish) and one DSQ (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Calms seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots coming from the southwest, The North Sea regions were behaved for most as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Both DNFs, one in each race respectively, were the results of skippers crashing while crossing on region corners. The crowds that gathered along the shores of the islands in the Genip and Ziziphus regions, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on some exciting racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Trapezoid course, was made up of a split majority of three Bandit 22 LTEs, and three Bandit IFs, two sailing single-handed and one sailing crewed respectively. Two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, two TMS Nacra 17s, one TMS Star Class, one TMS Laser One, one Rene Marine Clever, and one Dolphin Moth rounded out his weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea CCW (Counter-clockwise) course, was made up of a majority of seven TMS I-Mocca 60s. Three WildWind Open 60s, one TMS Ushuaia, one WildWind RC-44r, and one WildWind AC-45 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Calm to slightly choppy seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. With a gentle breeze of 8 knots coming from the southwest, The North Sea regions were well behaved for the first race, as all seventeen of the race’s skippers finished. The winds picked up to 11 knots for the second race, and the seas grew choppy as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) occurred. Two of those three DNFs were the result of skippers crashing to desktop in the middle of regions, with the third from a skipper crashing while crossing on region corners. The crowds that gathered on the observation deck of the lighthouse in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Posiedon Centre Spectator Pier in Eden Jakana, cheered on a great display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Short) and a two lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop course, was made up of a majority of ten Bandit 22 LTEs. Six Bandit IFs, five sailing single-handed and one sailing crewed respectively, and one Bandit 25r rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

A beautiful April Saturday afternoon in the North Sea and Fruit, with wind coming from the south, saw The North Sea regions behaving well with nary a cloud in the sky. Today we had a fleet of nine Bandit IFs at the start. Three of the nine Bandit IFs had crew. Just before the start of the second race two other bandits joined the company, however, one had to leave race course. So, we had ten Bandit IFs left.

Today we had two great races. There were close fights between all the skippers.

The first route was a map with numbers. This caused some unrest among the skippers. All the more that they only got the route description fifteen minutes before the start of the match. Yet, there were skippers who really arrived at the last minute. However, after the initial confusion, we had a good start and race.

The Second race was a regular race with map and USB, so that felt familiar to most skippers.

We had two DNFs (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through all races and it was another successful and sporting day in The North Sea.

More pictures after the results.
