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 two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, occurring during the small boat portion, was from a skipper crashing as her internet died. The remaining DNF, also occurring during the small boat portion, was from a skipper pulling his boat after frustration from getting stuck in-irons. The crowds that gathered along 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 a competitive display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta course, was made up of a majority of six Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, one The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadow, and one TMS Sea Boss – Rider rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Circle course, was made up of a majority of three TMS I-Mocca 60s. One WildWind Open 60, one WildWind RC-44r, one TMS Ocean Breeze, one Trudeau 12 Metre, and one Bandit 55 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Race Notes:
Xiao (XiaoMarque01 Resident) was disqualified (DSQ) during the small boat portion for sailing an incorrect course, missing the third course mark, the green buoy in the Ziziphus region.


Emileigh (Emileigh Starbrook) and Max (Max Starostin) both finished tied with 10 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
Emileigh Starbrook 3 7
Max Starostin/td>

4 6

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


Niem (NiemDarr Resident) and Rodney (Rodney McGimsie) both finished with tied with 18 points. As they both have the exact same finishes, a DNF (Did Not Finish) in the small boat portion and a DNS (Did Not Start) in the big boat portion respectively, neither Rula A8.1 or A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking this tie. Therefore, Niem and Rodney both remain tied in tenth place overall.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the last North Sea Open Regatta for July, 2022. 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 new-to-racing sailor pulling their boat during the small boat portion after frustration from sailing with a locked race wind for the first time. The crowds that gathered on the beaches of the island in the Ziziphus region, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, delighted in an electric display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Triple Pink course, was made up of a majority of six Bandit 22 LTEs. One crewed The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class rounded out this weeks small boat fleet.

This weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta took place on another beautiful Saturday afternoon in June. We started with ten Bandit IFs. One of the Bandit IFs had crew on board. The start of the first race was almost flawless. Dunia started from port and collided with Fanny. During the first leg, the fleet split up. Five skippers headed south, while the other five skippers headed west. At the first mark, Julie had already taken a small lead over Fanny, Moon, and Rugger. The other sailors had already fallen far behind. During the race, Julie slowly walked out on Fanny, and Moon. Rugger had to let the three leaders go.

During the start of the second race, the fleet was pressed near the Race Committee boat. A compact fleet of 8 boats set out for the first mark. Julie, Zero, and Moon took a slight lead. En route to the first mark, Moon and Julie would compete in a heated battle to see who would complete the mark first. This was supposed to be Moon, but Julie did not give up yet and rounded the second mark first. Fanny was now hot on their heels and was followed again by Zero.

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.

The last North Sea Triple Threat of April saw a beautiful Thursday afternoon, with good sailing weather coming from the southwest. Today we had six Bandit 22 LTEs, two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, and two Bandit IFs at the starting line. A Star Class had crew on board.

For a change, everyone would start at the same time and since we only had more than two boats of the Bandit 22, these skippers would compete for the win. And they would do their best to stay together until the end of the races.

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

Calm to stormy seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were generally behaved but turned stormy during the big boat portion as four DNFs (Did Not Finish) occurred. Two of those DNFs were due to skippers crashing as they crossed over region corners. Another DNF was due to a skipper pulling his boat after frustration from being caught in irons. The final DNF was due to a skippers connection dyeing on her. The crowds that gathered on the beaches 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, reveled in an exhilarating display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was made up of a majority of seven Bandit 22 LTEs. Two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, one sailing crewed and one sailing single-handed respectively, and two Bandit IFs rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Circle course, was made up of a small majority of four TMS I-Mocca 60s. Three WildWind Open 60s, one TMS One Design 65, one TMS Volvo Open 70, one ACA33, one WildWind RC-44r, one Bandit 55, and one Bandit 50/3 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

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


Sandra (WWWAAAA Resident) was charged with a Did Not Start (DNS) during the big boat portion due to being over the startline early, before the countdown clock reached 00:00, while never going back around to record a start. This was after notification from the start line, in local chat, and notification from a race director. A prescription to all North Sea races, a skipper must go around and re-cross the line to record a proper start if they are over the line early. Failing to record a proper start results in being charged with a DNS for that race.


Jenna (jnx1e Resident), Emileigh (Emileigh Starbrook), and Sea (filax Carter) all finished tied with 9 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
jnx1e Resident 2 7
Emileigh Starbrook 3 6
filax Carter 4 5

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Jenna’s favor with having a second place finish over Emileigh’s third place, and Sea’s fourth place finishes as their best.


Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) and Ella (eleanorvelvet Resident) both finished tied with 13 points. Rule A8.1 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to break this tie:

The first Triple Threat for March 2022 saw a beautiful Thursday afternoon with good sailing weather coming from the west. Today we had four Bandit 22 LTEs, three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, and four Bandit Ifs at the starting line. A 22 and a Star Class had crew on board.

We had two great races. It soon became clear that in the Star Class a skipper showed the other skippers how to win a competition. With the 22s and the IFs the races were exciting until the end.

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

Calm seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were well behaved through both portions of the regatta, as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. One DNF was due to a skipper pulling his boat late in the big boat portion, after getting caught in irons. The remaining DNF occurred when a skipper crashed while crossing over a region corners. The crowds that gathered along the shores 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 North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was made up of a majority of four Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, two sailing single-handed and one sailing crewed respectively, two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Nacra 17s, two Isard Sjogins, one TMS Flying Shadow, and one TMS Star Class rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Circle course, was made up of a majority of five TMS I-Mocca 60s.
