North Sea Open Regatta – November 9th 2016

Smooth sim weather and another great turnout featured in this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The sims behaved well as we only had one DNF registered for the entire regatta. The turnout was another record breaking one with 16 in the small boat fleet.

This weeks small boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Trapezoid course, was made up of a majority of five Bandit IFs. Three Flying Shadows, a Patchogue II, a Trudeau One, a Nacra 17, a Ktaba 20 MX Teleri, a Melges-24, a Laser One, and a Shields Class made up the remainder of the small boat fleet.

This weeks big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Copacabana course, was made up of a split majority of two The Mesh Shop Ushuaias and two ACA33s. A Trudeau 12 Metre, a Wildwind AC45, a The Mesh Shop One Design 65, a Bandit 50, and a Wildwind RC-44 made up the remainder of the big boat fleet.

Race Director: Petra
Wind: SW (225°) 15kts

Note:
Did Not Finish (DNF) = number of finish +1
Did Not Start (DNS) = number of start +1

Today’s winner was Stu (stuart1524 Resident), with Lucy (LucyInTheSky Afarensis) second, and Cole (Colette Verino) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Note:
Stu (stuart1524 Resident) and Lucy (LucyInTheSky Afarensis) finished tied with 5 points. As they both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the 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.

  1. Thank you Petra+Cryptic for yet another great pair of races!
    One remark about the handicaps: with people now sailing the FS v.2, it is time to update your tables 😉

    • It sure is time, but we need new times with the Flying Shadow V2.0 on North Sea Olympic Course (Long) to do just that. Grab your friends, and get a couple runs in each, record the times on a notecard and drop them on either Petra or I. If we get enough times before Wednesdays Open Regatta, we can have a new handicap ready by then..

  2. I found it difficult to get across the start line even when most boats were out of the way ( I shy away from aggro scrums), so maybe the line ran out memory then, too. I really have no idea, but the difficulty was unusual to me. Otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable race, thanks to Petra and Cryptic!
