Red (RedHeadJO Resident), and Lilita (lilita Cifuentes) both finished tied with 10 points. As they both have 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, 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, Red and Lilita remain tied in sixth place overall.

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.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing a three lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop Mirror course, was made up of a majority of six Bandit 22 LTEs. Two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, and one TMS Flying Shadow rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was made up of a majority of three TMS I-Mocca 60s. One TMS Ushuaia, one TMS Es Paradis, and one Trudeau 12 Metre rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

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.

The remaining DNF, also occurring during the small boat portion, was from a skipper pulling his boat after frustration from getting stuck in-irons. 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, reveled in a competitive display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.
