Calm to slightly choppy seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were calm for most as all four of the DNFs (Did Not Finish) recorded on the day were due to skippers pulling their boats. Two DNFs were due to skippers pulling their boats after discovering they had an incorrect course loaded in their navigation HUD. One more DNF was from a skipper pulling his boat after frustration from getting lost, with the final DNF due to a skipper pulling his boat after experiencing boat script issues. The crowds that gathered along the shores of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on a spirited display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was made up of a majority of eight Bandit 22 LTEs. Two Bandit IFs, one Shields Class, one Isard Sjogin, and one Quest 2m rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing a two lap affair on the North Sea Long Loop course, was made up of a majority of four Trudeau 12 Metres. Two WildWind Open 60s, one The Mesh Shop (TMS) Pacha 110, one TMS One Design 65, one TMS Ushuaia, and one Bandit 55 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 smooth for everyone during the small boat portion, as thirteen boats completed two laps of our Short Loop course. However, the seas grew rough during the big boat portion, with four DNFs (Did Not Finish) recorded. Of those four DNFs, three were due to skippers pulling their boats after either losing WWC wind, or script issues with their boat. The fourth DNF was due to skipper crashing while crossing over region corners. The crowds that gathered along the shores of the island in the Ziziphus region, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on an energetic display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing a two lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop course, was comprised of a majority of seven Bandit 22 LTEs. Four Bandit IFs, one The Mesh Shop (TMS) Laser One, and one Quest 2m rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was comprised of a majority of four TMS I-Mocca 60s.

Calm to choppy seas, a great fleet turnout, and a new boat highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were behaving well for everyone during the small boat portion of the regatta as all fourteen boats in the fleet finished the course with nary a hiccup. Storm clouds started to brew during the big boat portion, however, as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) occurred, both from mishaps on a region crossing in the Citrus region. The crowd that gathered on the small race dock, in the Eden Jakana region, and along the shores of the islands in the Ziziphus, Genip, and Citrus regions, cheered on a spirited display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

With the great conditions during the small boat portion, also came the first race for the new Isard Sjogin.

As of the publication of this post, the X version of the Sjogin, the version intended to be raced, has a preliminary handicap value of 0.60. As always, with any new boat, times run on North Sea Olympic Course (Long) will help the accuracy of the handicap. Any runs made for the Sjogin can be submitted, via notecard, to Cryptic or Daenerys. Please see North Sea Handicap Table for our handicap list and a link to the Google Sheet used to calculate those values.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was made up of a majority of five Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, one sailing single-handed and one sailing crewed respectively, one Bandit 25r, one Dolphin Moth, one Quest M-24, and one Isard Sjogin rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the newly created North Sea Hay course1, was made up of a small majority of four TMS I-Mocca 60s. Three WildWind Open 60s, one TMS One Design 65, one WildWind RC-44r, and one Trudeau 12 Metre rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

1North Sea Hay is an updated version of a course by Hay Ah from 2013 named NSHay01.

Choppy to smooth seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots coming from the southwest, The North Sea regions were generally behaved as only one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. However, the choppiness came from a bit of barging during the start of the small boat portion. After penalties were sorted and 360° turns completed, nearly everyone in the fleet finished. The lone DNF was due to a skippers connection dyeing on her just as she got within a regions length of the finish. The big boat portion had a much cleaner start and race, as every one of the fourteen strong fleet finished. The crowd that gathered on the small race dock and Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, and on the lighthouse observation deck on the island in the Ziziphus region, cheered on the spirited fleet racing on display from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Half Mane course, was made up of a majority of ten Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, two sailing single-handed and one sailing crewed respectively, two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, one sailing single-handed and one sailing with crew respectively, one TMS Nacra 17, one Quest 2m, and one Dolphin Moth rounded out his weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was made up of a majority of six TMS I-Mocca 60s. Four WildWind AC-45s, two WildWind Open 60s, one TMS Ushuaia, and one WildWind RC-44r rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Excellent seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were well behaved for all as no crashes, or DNFs (Did Not Finish) occurred. The crowd that gathered on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier, in the Eden Jakana region, and the lighthouse observation deck on the island in the Ziziphus region, took in some great fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This also marked the first Open Regatta appearance for the new The Mesh Shop (TMS) I-Mocca 60, released an hour before the start of the regatta, and bringing with it a handicap 0.761.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Olympic Mirror course, was made up of a majority of eight Bandit 22 LTEs. Two TMS Flying Shadows, one TMS Star Class, one Bandit 25r, one Dolphin Moth, one Shields Class, and one Quest M-24 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 five WildWind Open 60s. Two TMS One Design 65s, one TMS I-Mocca 60, one TMS Volvo Open 70, one Quest IACC, one ACA33, one WildWind AC-45, and one WildWind RC-44r rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

1With the new I-Mocca 60 handicap also comes the North Sea Standard Yearly Adjustment. All handicaps in today’s regatta are from the new adjustment. The improvements Linden Research™ has made to the backend of Secondlife™ have paid off for sailing in SL™ as the North Sea Standard is now at 0:10:33, down from last years 0:10:40. The largest influence on the faster times are from the drastically improved region crossing times from new region crossing code along with SL’s move to Amazon servers. North Sea Olympic Course (Long), the course the North Sea Standard is based on, was used 39 times in 2020, with the winning time of each race added to the data the standard is based on. From those 39 races, 410 finishing times were used to help update the handicap values of more than 40 boats in our table.

Stormy seas, with a another great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. A storm rolled across the regions of The North Sea during the small boat portion, as nine DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded. Eight of those nine DNFs were the result of trouble in the Sapodilla region with two crashes to desktop in the region, two region crossing crashes heading into Sapodilla, four corner crossing hits, and one skipper pulling her boat after highly increased lag on input control after the crossing into the region. The remaining DNF in the small boat portion was the result of a skipper crashing on a border crossing heading into the Ziziphus region. At the conclusion of the small boat portion the Sapodilla region was restarted, blowing away the storm. The big boat portion saw much calmer seas, as only two DNFs were recorded, both the result of skippers crashing on region corners. In light of the stormy seas, the crowds that gathered on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock, both in the Eden Jakana region, and along the shores of the island in the Ziziphus region, still reveled in the exciting fleet racing on display from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the newly created North Sea Half Mane course, was comprised of a majority of eight Bandit 22 LTEs. Two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, two Bandit IFs, two Bandit 25Rs, two Shields Class, one TMS Star Class, and one TMS Nacra 17 rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the newly created North Sea Lion’s Mane course, was comprised of a split majority of five Trudeau 12 Metres and five Wildwind Open 60s. Two TMS One Design 65s, one Volvo Open 70, one Quest IACC, and one ACA33 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Sandra (WWWAAAA Resident) and BalutA (balut24 Resident) both finished tied with 20 points. Rule A8.1 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the 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
WWWAAAA Resident 6 14
balut24 Resident 10 10

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Sandra’s favor with having a sixth place finish over BalutA’s tenth place finish as his best.


Sinarielle (Sinarielle Resident), Julie (JulieRoyale Resident), and Jackson (Jacquimo Resident) all finished tied with 26 points. As they all finished with the exact same finishes, a DNF (Did Not Finish) in the small boat portion and a DNS (Did Not Start) in the big boat portion respectively, neither Rule A8.1 or Rule A8.2 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking their tie. Therefore, Sinarielle, Julie, and Jackson all remain tied in sixteenth place overall.
