This weeks North Sea Open Regatta saw another large turnout and some smooth sim weather. 17 boats started in the small boat fleet, continuing our trend of large turnouts in the later part of this year. The sims themselves behaved well as we only saw 2 DNF’s in each race. Spectators also turned out in large numbers along the coast of the Eden Alabatros region, the beaches along Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, at the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, and at the committee boat dock in the Breadnut region.

Note: We have adjusted the handicap for the TMS Flying Shadow v2.0 to 0.96 (from 1.06 for the V 1.6). The North Sea Handicap Table has been adjusted accordingly.

Race Director: Petra
Wind: SW (225°) 18kts

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

Today’s winner was Cryptic (Cryptic Resident), with Beane (beane Bade) second, and Alexandre (ramuf Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Note:
In the big boats race, Peter was unfortunately DSQ’d for sailing the incorrect course.


Beane (beane Bade) and Alexandre (ramuf Resident) finished tied with 7 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.
