Calm 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 were generally well behaved as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, occurring during the small boat portion, was due to a skipper pulling her boat immediately after the start as her connection degraded. The remaining two DNFs, occurring in both portions, were from skippers crashing while crossing over region corners. The crowds that gathered along the beaches of the islands in the Ziziphus are Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, enjoyed a thrilling display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta took place on another beautiful Saturday afternoon in April. This time we had a fleet of nine Bandit IF’s at the start. One of the nine Bandit IFs had crew. The North Sea behaved well.

Today, the wind came from the southwest. We had a great start. A group of six boats immediately took the lead. At the same time as the start, a tenth skipper jumped into his boat to maintain a pursuit course. At the first mark we had a group of seven skippers. Approaching Ziziphus, we had a front runner. He was followed by a loner and a group of five skippers. At Ziziphus, the fleet split in two. One half sailed east of the island, while the other half took the western route. A skipper had technical problems and had to drop out. This left three skippers who would compete for second place.

At the start of the second race, we had two skippers doing something for the fleet. This was negated, as she returned to the first mark a little later than others. The Race would be a battle between two skippers. these would soon distance themselves from the fleet. The chase of seven pursuers together for a while. However, the group was quickly divided between loners and a group of three. These would compete for fourth place

There were three DNFs (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Skipper Best Finish Next Best Finish
Emileigh Starbrook 2 9

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The North Sea regions were well behaved as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day, all in the first race. The first DNF was due to a skipper pulling his boat out of frustration from getting caught in irons. The second DNF occurred when a skipper crashed while crossing across region corners. The final DNF was due to a skippers connection quitting on her. The crowds that gathered along the beaches 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 a spirited display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Bowline and North Sea CCW (Counter-Clockwise) courses, was made up of a majority of six Bandit 22 LTEs. Five Bandit IFs, four sailing single-handed and one sailing crewed respectively, rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Today’s winner was Jackson (Jacquimo Resident), with Sea (filax Carter) second, and Zimtzicke (Nicole Myhre) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate and to the SLCG for helping with race duties.

Race Notes:
Alex (Alex0730 Resident), Max (Maximiliano Szondi), and Diana (Dianafra Allen) all finished tied with 15 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
Alex0730 Resident 6 9
Maximiliano Szondi 6 9
Dianafra Allen 7 8

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Alex’s and Max’s favor with having sixth place finishes over Diana’s seventh place finish as her best.

As Alex and Max both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to further break this tie:

If a tie still remains between two or more boats, they shall be ranked in order of their scores in the last race. Any remaining ties shall be broken by using the tied boats’ scores in the next-to-last race and so on until all ties are broken. These scores shall be used even if some of them are excluded scores.

Skipper Race 1 Race 2
Alex0730 Resident 9 6
Maximiliano Szondi 6 9

In the last race, Alex breaks the tie with Max with his sixth place finish over Max’s ninth place finish.


Red (RedHeadJO Resident) and Michael (Bubblesort Triskaidekaphobia) both finished tied with 19 points. As they both have the exact same finishes, a DNF (Did Not Finish) during the first race and a DNS (Did Not Start) during the second race respectively, neither Rule A8.1 or Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing can satisfy breaking their tie. Therefor, Red and Michael remain tied in tenth place overall.

Calm seas, with nice fleet turnouts, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first two DNFs, both occurring during the small boat portion, were due to a skipper pulling his boat after computer hardware issues, and another skipper crashing while crossing across region corners. The remaining DNF, occurring during the big boat portion, was due to a skipper’s boat’s scripts spitting out errors after a crossing. The crowds that gathered on the beaches of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, as well as along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on a spirited display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Bowline Reverse course, was made up of a majority of five Bandit 22 LTEs. Two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, split evenly between one crewed and one single-handed respectively, two Bandit IFs, and one Shields Class rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Extreme course, was made up of a small majority of three TMS I-Mocca 60s. Two Bandit 55s, one Bandit 60, one TMS Volvo Open 70, one WildWind SC-40, one Trudeau 12 Metre, and one ACA33 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

This weeks North Sea Triple Threat Regatta took place on a beautiful Thursday afternoon in March with the wind coming from the Southwest again with a beautiful sail. Today we had five Bandit 22 LTEs and five Bandit IFS on the starting line. A Bandit IF had crew on board.

We had two beautiful races. At the 22s there was a skipper “Lord and Master” during both races. A skipper ended up in the “Circle of the Dragon” during the pre-start. At the IFs, a skipper was too eager and started early. As a result, a catch-up race had to be made.

There were no DNFs (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Today’s winners on the Bandit IF were Moonglownight (Moonglownight Resident), with Julie (JulieRoyale) second, and Jack (Jacquimo Resident) in third place.

Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Alex (Alex0730 Resident) did hit the fire of “The Circle of the Dragon” in the Pre-Start of the second race

“During the start there will be a circle in the water that we call “The Circle of the Dragon”. Everyone stays out of this circle until 10 seconds before the start signal. When you are to early in the circle, then I will add 30 second penalty to you finish time.“

Therefore Alex finish time was added with 30 seconds.
