Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the first North Sea Open Regatta of October, 2022. The North Sea regions were well behaved as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, occurring during the small boat fleet, was due to a skipper pulling her boat after frustration from getting caught in irons on the first leg. The second DNF, occurring during the big boat portion, was due to a skipper crashing while crossing across a region corner. The crowds that gathered on the beaches 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 Reverse course, was made up of a majority of five Bandit 22 LTEs. Two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, one TMS Nacra 17, one TMS Sea Boss – Rider, one Bandit IF, and one Bandit 25 R rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Double Loop course, was made up of a split majority of two TMS I-Mocca 60s, and two WildWind RC-44Rs. One TMS One Design 65, Trudeau Runa IV, and one Bandit 55 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Note: As of the publishing of these results, the handicap value for the TMS Es Paradis has been adjusted to 0.94, from its preliminary release value of 1.00. Please see North Sea Handicap Table for more of our handicap values, and the link to the Google Sheet used to calculate them.

A beautiful Saturday afternoon was the scene for the first North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for October, 2022. We started with seven Bandit IFs. One Bandit IF had crew on board.

Today we sailed a long route. We had a fantastic start. Five of the seven boats formed a leading group. Julie took a lead between the first and second buoy, which would only got bigger as the race progressed. At the same time, the sixth boat, Red, had joined the group, leaving the group still consisting of six skippers. The group consisting of Jack, Moon, Siri, Red and Emi would compete for second place. Going into the second lap, Red and Moon had distanced themselves from Siri, Jack and Emi. This made it clear who would compete for second place. Darb continued to follow the scene for a short distance.

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.

Another week of calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the last Cat Fight in The North Sea for August, 2022. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, rising to 21 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF, occurring during the first race, was due to a skipper’s boat spewing script errors resulting in her pulling the boat. 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 frenetic fleet-foiled feline fury on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Double Loop and North Sea Snipe courses, was made up of six The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, four sailing single-handed and two crewed respectively, for the first race. One skipper switched to their TMS Nacra 17 for the second race.

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.

Thursday Triple Threat – April 28th 2022

From the left to the right: Bandit B22: Moon, Aymalie, Astrid, Ester & Yolamat, Alex, Nicole Bandit IF: Jack, Julie Star Class: Emi, Max & Wyndi Pier: Marius, Sea, Elo Dock: Cryptic Committee boat: Daenerys

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 choppy seas, with nice fleet turnouts, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions started off behaved but a storm rolled in as four DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, during the small boat portion, was due to a region border crash right before the finish. During the big boat portion, the same skipper once again crashed on the same region border, even after those regions had been restarted. The remaining two DNFs were due skippers crashing as they crossed over region corners. The crowds that gathered on the lighthouse observation deck on the island in the Ziziphus region, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on a great display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Trapezoid course, was made up of a majority of six Bandit 22 LTEs. One The Mesh Shop (TMS) Nacra 17, one crewed TMS Star Class, one Bandit IF, and one ReneMarine Clever rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Double Loop course, was made up of a small majority of three TMS I-Mocca 60s. Two WildWind Open 60s, two Bandit 60s, one Bandit 55, one Trudeau 12 Metre, and one ACA33 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.
