Calm seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, The North Sea regions were well behaved for most again as only one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF was due to a skipper crashing across region corners. The crowds that gathered on the beaches on the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, as well as along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on an exciting display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Trapezoid course, was made up of a majority of six Bandit 22 LTEs. Four Bandit IFs, split evenly at two single-handed and two crewed respectively, two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Nacra 17s, one TMS Laser One, and one Isard Sjogin rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Butterfly course, was made up of a majority of five TMS I-Mocca 60s. Two WildWind Open 60s, one WildWind SC-40, one TMS One Design 65, one TMS Pacha 110, and one Trudeau 12 Metre rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Race Notes:
Rugger (ruggeromare resident) was disqualified (DSQ) during the small boat portion for sailing without race director assigned racewind.


Jon (flyboy82jb Resident) and Diana (Dianafra Allen) both finished tied with 22 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
flyboy82jb Resident 9 13
Dianafra Allen 10 12

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Jon’s favor with having a ninth place finish over Diana’s tenth place finish as her best.
