Calm to choppy seas, with a light fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, rising to 21 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were behaved for most as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Both DNFs were attributed to the same skipper, as she crashed on a region border in the first race, and crashed in the middle of a region in the second race. The crowds that gathered on the shores of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, reveled in the energetic fleet-foiled feline fury on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Triple Pink and North Sea Extreme Reverse courses, was made up of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, two sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, during the first race. One single-handed skipper opted to take on crew, on her Flying Shadow, for the second race.

Race Notes:
Julie (JulieRoyale Resident) and Moon (moonglownight Resident) both finished the first race tied at the finishing line with a time of 13:07. As their final time also remains tied, as they both sailed the same boat, Rule A7 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing 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 Julie and Moon receive 3.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 3 and 4, added together and divided equally.


Sin (Sinarielle Resident) and Max (Max Starostin) both finished tied with 8 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
Sinarielle Resident 2 6
Max Starostin 3 5

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Sin’s favor with having a second place finish over Max’s third place finish as his best.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the first North Sea Bandit Regatta for September, 2022. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, occurring during the first race, was due to a skipper crashing while crossing across region corners. The second DNF, also occurring during the first race, was due to a skipper pulling his boat on the second leg after he stated his boat messed up. The crowds that gathered on the shores of the island in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, delighted in a thrilling display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long) and the North Sea Trapezoid course, was made up of a majority of eight Bandit 22 LTEs. One crewed Bandit IF rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet in the first race. Two skippers stepped away, with an additional Bandit IF, and another Bandit 22 LTE taking their place in the second race.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The North Sea regions were generally well behaved, as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Two of those DNFs were due to skippers crashing while crossing over region corners. The remaining DNF was from a skipper pulling her boat in the second race after frustration from getting lost on the course. The crowds that gathered on the shores of the island in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on an electric display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta Reverse and North Sea Bowline Reverse courses, was made up of a majority of nine Bandit 22 LTEs. One Bandit 25, and one Bandit 50/3 rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.
