Calm to slightly choppy seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. All three DNFs, one occurring during the small boat portion and two during the big boat portion, were the results of skippers crossing over region corners. The two DNFs during the big boat portion were the direct results of a particularly nasty corner rounding, around the northern tip of the island in the Ziziphus region, amongst a pack of six of the fleet at that point. The crowds that gathered along 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, delighted in a rousing display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea CCW (counter-clockwise) course, was made up of a majority of ten Bandit 22 LTEs. Two Bandit IFs, and two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, one sailing crewed and one single-handed respectively, rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Roundabout course, was made up of a majority of four TMS I-Mocca 60s. Three WildWind Open 60s, and one TMS One Design 65 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Calm to choppy seas, with a great 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 well calm for the small boat portion but turned slightly choppy during the big boat portion as five DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first two DNFs, occurring during the small boat portion, were due to a skipper pulling his boat right after the start-line, and another skipper’s connection dying on her during the first leg. The three remaining DNFs, all occurring during the big boat portion, were from skippers crashing while crossing across region corners. 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, were delighted by an electric 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 seven Bandit 22 LTEs. Two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, two Bandit IFs, split evenly at one crewed and one single-handed respectively, one TMS Sea Boss – Rider, one TMS Flying Shadow, one TMS Nacra 17, and one Bandit 25 R rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Roundabout course, was made up of a majority of five TMS I-Mocca 60s.

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Ester’s favor with having a fifth place finish over Sea’s seventh place finish as her best.


Asher (AsherZacharias Resident), Red (RedHeadJO Resident), Xiǎo (XiaoMarque01 Resident), and Lilita (lilita Cifuentes) all finished tied with 22 points. As they all finished with the exact same points in each race, a 12 point finish in the small boat portion and 10 point finish in the big boat portion respectively, neither Rule A8.1 or A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking their tie. Therefore, Asher, Red, Xiǎo, and Lilita all remain tied in twelfth place overall.

Calm seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this week’s 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, occurring during the small boat portion, was attributed to a skipper’s connection dying on them in the middle of the race. 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, cheered on a thrilling display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

Calm to choppy seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the first North Sea Open Regatta of July, 2022. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots coming out of the southwest, The North Sea regions were a bit choppy as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Secondlife™ was having ongoing issues with crashes, so much so that Linden Research™ stated as such in an incident report previous to the start of the regatta.

Linden Lab Incident Report on elevated crash rates, as seen on https://status.secondlifegrid.net/incidents/d5pcfqpqpl4x , on July 6th, 2022.

Two of the three DNFs recorded on the day most likely were the result of the ongoing issues. The third DNF was due to a skipper crashing while crossing across region corners. 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 great display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Olympic Course (Long) course, was made up of a triple split majority of two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, two TMS Nacra 17s, and two Bandit 22 LTEs. One Bandit 25R, and one Bandit F rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Roundabout course, was made up of a majority of four TMS I-Mocca 60s.

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.


Sea (filax Carter) was ruled a Did Not Start (DNS) for the small boat portion due to being over the start line early, before the start countdown reached 0:00:00, while failing to come around and cross again for a proper start.
Note: As a prescription to all North Sea Races, skippers crossing the start line early, before the race pre-start countdown reaches 0:00:00 must circle around back into the pre-start area to properly cross the start line on time or be ruled a Did Not Start.


Emileigh (Emileigh Starbrook) and Moon (moonglownight Resident) both 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:

From the left to the right: (in Bandit IFs) Fanny, Emi, Red, Julie, Darb & Kit, Moon, Zero, and Rugger. Committee boat: Daenerys. Dock: Cryptic, and Caethes.

This weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta took place on another beautiful Saturday afternoon in June. We started with eight Bandit IFs. One of the Bandit IFs had crew on board. The start of the first race went smoothly. Julie and Emi had started from port and took a different route to the first mark. The other five boats would head from the east to the first mark. At the first mark, Fanny took charge of the fleet. Julie and Moon would battle for second place. Zero, Emi, Red and Rugger followed at a distance from the three leaders. Julie was close behind Fanny when they approached the island in the Genip region. Just before they rounded the island, fate befell Fanny. This gave Julie and Moon free rein in the last leg.

The second race started with nine boats. Jack had reported to the start line late during the first race, but was able to participate in the second race. During the start, the RC was pressing. Eight of the nine skippers started in quick succession, causing a compact fleet to head for the first mark. Fanny managed to build up a small lead over the other seven skippers. After leaving the mark in the Sloe region, we had four pursuers, Jack, Rugger, Julie and Moon. Approaching the mark in the Sapote region, Julie and Jack had given chase to Fanny, leaving Rugger and Moon behind. Fanny, Julie and Jack were going to decide who would come first, second and third. This was a fight to the finish line.

There were three DNFs (Did Not Finish) and one DSQ (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. The North Sea regions were well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF was due to a skipper crashing while crossing across region corners during the second race. The crowds that gathered on the beaches on the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, delighted in the frantic fleet-foiled feline fury on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta and the North Sea Roundabout courses, was made up of four The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows for the first race. Two skippers opted for different boats for the second race, switching to a TMS Nacra 17 and WildWind AC-62 respectively.
