Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the last North Sea Open Regatta for November, 2022. The North Sea regions were well behaved as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, recorded during the small boat portion, was from a skipper crashing as she crossed over region corners. The remaining DNF, also recorded during the small boat portion, was from a skippers router cutting off her connection to the internet. The crowds that gathered on the lighthouse observation deck on the island in the Ziziphus region, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, were delighted by a rousing display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

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.

Maximiliano Szondi 6 7

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Ester’s favor with having a third place finish over Diana’s fifth place, and Max’s sixth place finishes as their best.


Kovu (Kovu Galliard) and Niem (NiemDarr Resident) both finished tied with 18 points.
