Calm seas, with a light fleet turnout, highlighted the first North Sea Open Regatta of November, 2022. With Summer Time ending for Europe this past weekend and North America ending Daylight Savings Time this upcoming weekend, Secondlife™ time is one hour earlier for those in Europe this week. As a result, this week every year gives us our lightest fleet turnouts. The North Sea regions were generally well behaved with one DNF (Did Not Finish) recorded on the day. The lone DNF, occurring during the big boat portion, was due to a skipper crashing while crossing from the Sloe region into the Sapodilla region, resulting in her boat taking a relaxing swim in our assistant race director Daenerys’ pool on her island in the Persimmon region. The crowds that gathered along 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, 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 three Bandit 22 LTEs. One The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadow rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Torpedo course, was made up of a majority of two TMS I-Mocca 60s. One ACA33, and one Trudeau 12 Metre rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

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 was due to a skipper loading gestures for the wrong boat when he started the first race. The second DNF, also occurring during the first race, was due to a skipper pulling his boat after frustration from getting lost on the course late in the race. The third and final DNF, occurring during the second race, was from a skipper crashing while crossing over region corners. 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.

Race Notes:
Aymalie (Aymalie Resident) and Sea (filax Carter) both finished the first race tied at the finishing line with a time of 12:22. As their final time also remains tied, as they both sailed the same boat, Rule A7 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to score this tie:

If boats are tied at the finishing line or if a handicap or rating system is used and boats have equal corrected times, the points for the place for which the boats have tied and for the place(s) immediately below shall be added together and divided equally. Boats tied for a race prize shall share it or be given equal prizes.

Therefore, both Aymalie and Sea receive 3.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 3 and 4, added together and divided equally.


Sea (filax Carter) and Zimtzicke (Nicole Myhre) both finished the second race tied at the finishing line with a time of 17:53. As their final time also remains tied, as they both sailed the same boat, Rule A7 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to score this tie:

Skipper Best Finish Next Best Finish
NiemDarr Resident 8 10
Cate Sewell 9 9

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Niem’s favor with having an eighth place finish over Cate’s ninth place finish as her best.


RegY (RegY Constantine), and Rodney (Rodney McGimsie) both finished tied with 22 points. As they both finished with the exact same finishes in each race, a DNF (Did Not Finish) in the first race, and a DNS (Did Not Start) in the second race, 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, RegY and Rodney remain tied in twelfth place overall.

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
citacg Resident 3 10
Dianafra Allen 5 8
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. 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 A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking this tie. Therefore, Kovu and Niem remain tied in tenth place overall.

Calm to choppy seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this week’s North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were generally calm but slightly choppy for a few with connection issues as five DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Three of those DNFs were due to skippers crashing while crossing over region corners. However, the remaining two DNFs, one in each regatta portion respectively, were due to connection issues that Linden Research™ themselves acknowledged with several ongoing maintenance periods through the past two days to try and remedy (see: https://status.secondlifegrid.net/incidents/0xfx85pmf77w , https://status.secondlifegrid.net/incidents/bhc1q8dvfy5k , and https://status.secondlifegrid.net/incidents/0y6jbz3353wm) 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, delighted in 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 five Bandit IFs. Four Bandit 22s, one The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, one Shields Class, one TMS Flying Shadow, and one TMS Nacra 17 rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Butterfly course, was made up of a majority of five TMS I-Mocca 60s. Two TMS One Design 65s, one Trudeau 12 Metre, one WildWind SC-40, one Bandit 50/3, and one Bandit 60 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Race Notes:
Zimtzicke (Nicole Myhre) and Ester (citacg Resident) both finished the small boat portion tied at the finishing line with a time of 12:28. As their final time also remains tied, as they both sailed the same boat, Rule A7 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to score this tie:

If boats are tied at the finishing line or if a handicap or rating system is used and boats have equal corrected times, the points for the place for which the boats have tied and for the place(s) immediately below shall be added together and divided equally. Boats tied for a race prize shall share it or be given equal prizes.

Therefore, both Zimtzicke and Ester receive 4.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 4 and 5, added together and divided equally.


Jackson (Jacquimo Resident), Sea (filax Carter), and Diana (Dianafra Allen) all finished tied with 19 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
Jacquimo Resident 7 12
filax Carter 8 11
Dianafra Allen 9 10

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Jackson’s favor with having a seventh place finish over Sea’s eighth place, and Diana’s ninth place finishes as their best.


Red (RedHeadJO Resident) and Niem (NiemDarr Resident) both finished tied with 23 points. As both finished with the exact same finishes in each race, a DNF (Did Not Finish) during the small boat portion and a DNS (Did Not Start) during the big boat portion respectively, neither Rule A8.1 or Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking this tie. Therefore, Red and Niem remain tied in thirteenth place overall.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. With a moderate breeze of 15 knots coming out of the southwest, rising to a fresh breeze of 18 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were well behaved as no DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The crowds that gathered on the lighthouse observation deck on the island in the Ziziphus region, and along the Pooseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, reveled in the frantic fleet-foiled feline frenzy on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Trapezoid course and North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was made up of a majority of five The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, four sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively. One WildWind AC-45 rounded out this weeks catamaran fleet in the first race. The AC-45 skipper switched to her AC-62 in the second race.
