Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF was attributed to a skipper pulling his boat during the big boat portion.

Calm seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were generally behaved as four DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Two of those DNFs, occurring during the small boat portion, were due to a corner crash and a skipper’s connection failing. The remaining two DNFs, occurring during the big boat portion, were due to two skippers pulling their boats. The crowds that gathered on the shores of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock 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 Bowline course, was made up of a triple split majority of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Nacra 17s, three Bandit 22 LTEs, and three Bandit IFs, two sailing single-handed and one sailing crewed respectively.

Race Notes:
Cate (Cate Sewell) and Anthony (AnthonyKingston Resident) registered as a team prior to the start of the race, therefore their points are accredited together.


Zimtzicke (Nicole Myhre) was disqualified (DSQ) during the big boat portion for sailing an incorrect course, missing the first course mark, sailing south instead of north of the blue buoy in the Sapote region.


Ester (citacg Resident) was disqualified (DSQ) during the big boat portion for sailing an incorrect course, missing the sixth course mark, sailing north instead of south of the pink buoy in the Bilberry region.


Zimtzicke (Nicole Myhre) and Max (Max Starostin) both finished tied with 11 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.

Jenna (jnx1e Resident) and Red (RedHeadJO Resident) both finished tied with 25 points. As they both have the exact same finishes, 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 A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking this tie. Therefore, Jenna and Red remain tied in fourteenth place overall.

The crowds that gathered along the shore of the island in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, reveled in a great display of racing from this weeks skippers.

Calm to slightly choppy seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, The North Sea regions started out calm but grew choppy during the big boat portion. Three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF occurred during the end of the small boat portion as a skippers connection started to fail on him, causing several crashes to desktop. The remaining two DNFs occurred during the big boat portion as one skipper crashed while crossing across a region corner, with the later due to a skipper crashing on a rough crossing. The crowds that gathered along the shores of the islands in the Genip and Ziziphus regions, and on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier, in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on a festive display of fleet racing on display from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Trapezoid course, was comprised of a majority of five Bandit 22 LTEs. Three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, one Bandit IF, one Bandit 25r, one TMS Flying Shadow, one Dolphin Moth, and one Isard Sjogin rounded out this weeks small boat fleet.

Calm to choppy seas, a great fleet turnout, and a new boat highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were behaving well for everyone during the small boat portion of the regatta as all fourteen boats in the fleet finished the course with nary a hiccup. Storm clouds started to brew during the big boat portion, however, as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) occurred, both from mishaps on a region crossing in the Citrus region. The crowd that gathered on the small race dock, in the Eden Jakana region, and along the shores of the islands in the Ziziphus, Genip, and Citrus regions, cheered on a spirited display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

With the great conditions during the small boat portion, also came the first race for the new Isard Sjogin. The Sjogin, a double-ender sloop from Lalia (laliacasau Resident), was released earlier in the morning before the Open Regatta. As of the publication of this post, the X version of the Sjogin, the version intended to be raced, has a preliminary handicap value of 0.60. As always, with any new boat, times run on North Sea Olympic Course (Long) will help the accuracy of the handicap. Any runs made for the Sjogin can be submitted, via notecard, to Cryptic or Daenerys. Please see North Sea Handicap Table for our handicap list and a link to the Google Sheet used to calculate those values.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was made up of a majority of five Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, one sailing single-handed and one sailing crewed respectively, one Bandit 25r, one Dolphin Moth, one Quest M-24, and one Isard Sjogin rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the newly created North Sea Hay course1, was made up of a small majority of four TMS I-Mocca 60s. Three WildWind Open 60s, one TMS One Design 65, one WildWind RC-44r, and one Trudeau 12 Metre rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

1North Sea Hay is an updated version of a course by Hay Ah from 2013 named NSHay01.

Choppy to smooth seas, with a great 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 generally behaved as only one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. However, the choppiness came from a bit of barging during the start of the small boat portion. After penalties were sorted and 360° turns completed, nearly everyone in the fleet finished. The lone DNF was due to a skippers connection dyeing on her just as she got within a regions length of the finish. The big boat portion had a much cleaner start and race, as every one of the fourteen strong fleet finished. The crowd that gathered on the small race dock and Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, and on the lighthouse observation deck on the island in the Ziziphus region, cheered on the spirited fleet racing on display from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Half Mane course, was made up of a majority of ten Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, two sailing single-handed and one sailing crewed respectively, two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, one sailing single-handed and one sailing with crew respectively, one TMS Nacra 17, one Quest 2m, and one Dolphin Moth rounded out his weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was made up of a majority of six TMS I-Mocca 60s. Four WildWind AC-45s, two WildWind Open 60s, one TMS Ushuaia, and one WildWind RC-44r rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.
