A great turnout in spectators and racers highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. We had a large fleet for the small boat portion of the Open Regatta with 18 boats while the big boat portion saw 10 boats. The dock in Eden Puffin was also packed with spectators cheering on the racers while the beaches of Eden Albatros and Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region saw enthusiastic crowds gather. Plus, the sim weather was mild with calm seas as the DNFs (Did Not Finish) on the day, 3 in the small boat race and 1 in the big boat race, were not due to crashes.

The small boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Triple Pink course, was comprised of a majority of six Bandit 25s. Five bandit IFs, two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Nacra 17s, two Quest Melges-24s, one TMS Flying Shadow, one Dolphin Moth, and on Trudeau T-12 made up the remainder of the small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Counter Clockwise (NS-CCW) course, was comprised of a majority of three TMS One Design 65s. Two TMS Pacha 110s, two TMS Ushuaias, two Wildwind Open 60s, one Wildwind RC-44r, and one Trudeau Francois Jacques made up the remainder of the big boat fleet.

Race Notes:
Rosie (Arwyn Silverweb) and Howard (hallveis Resident) both finished tied with 15 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.

Dean (Dean March) and Jackson (Jacquimo Resident) finished tied with 16 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:

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.
