Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. 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 for most as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Both DNFs, in both races, were from the same skipper crashing from her internet connection failing and then removing her boat. The crowds that assembled 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, indulged in the fresh fleet-foiled feline fun on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Triple Pink and the North Sea Copacabana Reverse courses, was made up of seven The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows in the first race. The second race saw four single-handed Flying Shadows merge into two crewed boats, with another skipper switching to his TMS Nacra 17.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the last North Sea Open Regatta of September, 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 skipper crashing to desktop the moment she crossed the start in the small boats portion. 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 an energetic 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 four Bandit 22 LTEs. One The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadow, one TMS Sea Boss – Rider, one crewed TMS Star Class, and one crewed Bandit IF rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea CCW (Counter-ClockWise) course, was made up of two WildWind RC-44s, two TMS I-Mocca 60s, two WildWind Open 60s, and one TMS Es Paradis1.

1The TMS Es Paradis has a preliminary handicap value of 1.00, as a still recently released boat with no lap times from North Sea Olympic Course (Long) (the standardized course for the North Sea Handicap Table). Several skippers have stepped forward as of the publishing of these results and volunteered to record times to establish a proper handicap for the Es Paradis.

Calm to choppy seas, with a light fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, rising to 21 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were behaved for most as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Both DNFs were attributed to the same skipper, as she crashed on a region border in the first race, and crashed in the middle of a region in the second race. 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 energetic fleet-foiled feline fury on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Triple Pink and North Sea Extreme Reverse courses, was made up of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, two sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, during the first race. One single-handed skipper opted to take on crew, on her Flying Shadow, for the second race.

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.

The first North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for June 2022, took place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. We started with seven Bandit IFs. Two of the Bandit IFs had crew on board. The start of the first race went smoothly. Six boats in a row would be heading for the first mark. Julie was already slightly ahead of Jack and Moon as they rounded the first mark. Moon battled Jack after the first mark and took over second at the mark. Julie slowly sailed away from the entire fleet. This one should settle for second place.

We started the second race with six boats. The fleet was a little apart in the beginning. Rugger was in charge and was chased by Zero, Moon Jack, Julie and Max. By the first mark, Rugger had taken the lead. He was chased by Jack, Zero and Moon. They competed with each other. Because of this, they lost time on Rugger, and Julie managed to come alongside. On the way to the third mark, the fleet was completely shaken up. Rugger took another line and left the fleet. Julie, Zero, and Moon competed against each other. Who would win this? By the time rounding the third mark, Julie was in the lead. Followed by Zero, and Moon. Rugger had gambled and lost. He only rounded the mark in fourth. On the way to the fifth mark, Jack appeared out of nowhere and went into battle with Rugger. Julie distanced herself from the fleet again and Zero, and Moon would decide who would come second.

There were two DNFs (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 nice fleet turnouts, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, The North Sea regions were generally behaved as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Two DNFs were from skippers crossing across region corners. The remaining DNF was from a skipper’s connection dyeing on her near the finish of the small boat portion. The crowds that gathered on the beaches on the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, reveled in an exciting 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. Three Bandit IFs, and two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, split evenly with one single-handed and one crewed respectively, rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Torpedo course, was made up of a triple split majority of two ACA 33s, two WildWind Open 60s, and two TMS I-Mocca 60s. One TMS One Design 65, One Bandit 60, one Bandit 55, and one WildWind RC-44r rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Race Notes:
Julie (JulieRoyale Resident) and Jenna (jnx1e Resident) finished tied with 4 points. As they both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to break this tie:

If a tie still remains between two or more boats, they shall be ranked in order of their scores in the last race. Any remaining ties shall be broken by using the tied boats’ scores in the next-to-last race and so on until all ties are broken. These scores shall be used even if some of them are excluded scores.
