Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. The North Sea regions were well behaved with no DNFs (Did Not Finish) recorded on the day. The crowds that gathered along the shores of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on the electric fleet-foiled feline frenzy on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long) and the North Sea Roundabout course, was made up of a majority of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows. Two WildWind AC-62s, and one TMS Nacra 17 rounded out this weeks catamaran fleet in the first race. Two Flying Shadow skippers had to leave before the start of the second race, and another skipper joined with her WildWind AC-45.

Today’s winner was Max (Max Starostin), with Zero (Sleet Zero) second, and Moon (moonglownight Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.
Max (Max Starostin) and Zero (Sleet Zero) both finished tied with 5 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|
With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Max’s favor with having a first place finish over Zero’s second place finish as her best.
