Wonderful sailing weather and a great turnout featured in this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea sims behaved exceptionally well as not a single DNF (Did Not Finish), of which there were two on the day, was recorded due to crashes. The two DNFs on the day came during the big boat portion of the regatta, as Safy, with Julia as crew in her The Mesh Shop (TMS) Ushuaia, pulled her boat late in the race after several penalty turns, and Palani, in his Wildwind Open 60, crossed the raceline from the incorrect side at the finish then lowered his sails failing to sail around, cross again properly and record a finish. Crowds again showed up in numbers at the lighthouse and beaches on Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region, the beaches in the Eden Albatros region, and both the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and the small racing dock in the Eden Puffin region. There were 13 boats in the small boats portion, all of which finished the race, highlighting a great turnout in fleet size. There were an additional 8 boats in the big boat portion of the regatta.

This weeks small boat fleet, racing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was comprised of a majority five Bandit IFs. Three Bandit 25s, three TMS Flying Shadows, one TMS Nacra 17, and one Trudeau Patchogue II rounded out the remainder of the small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Butterfly course, was comprised of a majority of three Wildwind Open 60s. Two TMS One Design 65s, one TMS Pacha 110, one TMS Ushuaia, and one Wildwind AC-45 rounded out the remainder of the big boat fleet.

A great spectator turnout and wonderful sailing weather featured in this week’s North Sea Bandit Regatta. The new dock, made by Petra, in Eden Puffin is getting great use as it was crowded for both races today. We also saw a wonderful turnout at Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region, as it was a great central viewing point for both courses, NS-SOL-13C and North Sea Butterfly. The regions themselves, freshly restarted 2 hours prior to the regatta, behaved well as no crashes were had until the very last race when Jackson’s connection gave up on him during a tight battle with Moon. This weeks fleet was made up of a majority of seven Bandit IFs with two Bandit 25s and a lone Bandit 60 making up the remainder.

On the dock: Riv, Cryptic and Petra.

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta saw a nice turnout, slightly choppy sim weather, and a great spectator turnout. The turnout for both fleets this week was nice with 13 in the small boats and 8 in the large boats portion. The sims themselves behaved for the most part however they did bite a little during the small boat race, causing crashes that results in four DNFs. Spectators continue to turn up in large numbers around The North Sea sims, and along the southern shores of The Eden Naturist Estate to take in the days races.

The small boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Circle course, was made up of a split majority of three Trudeau Patchogue IIs, three TMS Flying Shadows, and three Bandit IFs. Two Shields Class, a Quest Melges-24, and a TMS Laser One rounded out the remainder of the fleet. The fleet got off to a great start as ten of the thirteen were across the start line as 22 seconds ticked off the race clock. Jackson, in his Bandit IF, got things started, crossing the start line first at 00:00:06. Arwyn, in her Trudeau Patchogue II, followed right behind Jackson, crossing the start line at 00:00:07 with Lucy, in her Quest Melges-24, right on her stern at 00:00:08. Carlota, in her Trudeau Patchogue II, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:10 with Neil, in his Bandit IF, on her stern at 00:00:11, and Moon, in his Shields Class, right behind at 00:00:12. Joshue, in his Trudeau Patchogue II, was following them, crossing the start line at 00:00:13, with Traeumer, in his Shields Class, on his stern at 00:00:14. ViV, in her TMS Flying Shadow was next to cross the start line at 00:00:18, followed by Rayz, in his TMS Flying Shadow, at 00:00:22. Peter, in his TMS Laser One, crossed the start line next at 00:00:34, followed by Dess, in her TMS Flying Shadow, at 00:00:55, and Riv, in his Bandit IF, at 00:01:17. The seas turned a bit nippy on the first leg, as Jackson, Arwyn, Joshua, and Riv all would succumb to crashes and record DNFs. Lucy, in her Quest Melges-24, took advantage of the rough sim seas and also her slightly faster M-24 and jumped to the lead of the fleet, holding that position for half the course. Viv, Rayz, and Dess, in their faster TMS Flying Shadows, passed through the fleet and nipped on Lucy’s stern as they gained and on her. Carlota, in her slower Trudeau Patchogue II, fell back in the fleet, taking up position near the rear. Neil, in his slower Bandit IF, fell back in the fleet as well, settling in near Carlota. Moon, and Trauemer, both in Shields Class, settled into the middle of the fleet as Peter, in his TMS Laser One, nipped ahead of them and fell in right behind the faster TMS Flying Shadows and Quest M-24 at the front. Viv and Rayz, both in their TMS Flying Shadows, overtook Lucy, in her Quest Melges-24, at the midway point of the course and started to build a lead at the front of the fleet. Lucy was able to hold off Dess, in her TMS Flying Shadow, just staying ahead of her. Viv crossed the finish line first, taking line honors, with Rayz, crossing second behind her. Lucy crossed the finish line third followed by Dess, Peter, Moon, Traeumer, Neil, and Carlota.

The big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Butterfly course, was made up of a split majority of two Wildwind RC-44s and two Trudeau 12 Metres. A TMS Ushuaia, a TMS One Design 65, a Bandit 55, and a Wildwind Open 60 made up the rounded out the remainder of the fleet. Once again, the fleet saw a great start as more than half were on the course side of the race line by the time 22 seconds ticked off the race clock. Peter, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, got things underway as he crossed the start line at 00:00:02 followed by Dess, in her Wildwind RC-44, at 00:00:03. Lucy, in her Wildwind RC-44, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:08, followed by Traeumer, in his TMS Ushuaia, at 00:00:10. Gryfin, in his Wildwind Open 60, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:18 followed by Rayz, in his TMS One Design 65, at 00:00:22. Moon, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, was next across the start line at 00:00:41 followed by Riv, in his Bandit 55, at 00:00:45. Lucy, and Dess, both in their faster Wildwind RC-44s, leapt out to the head of the fleet as they battled each other for position with Lucy ultimately coming ahead in the battle. Rayz, in his faster TMS One Design 65, snuck past Peter, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, as the middle of the fleet started to settle. Trauemer, in his slower TMS Ushuaia, took up the rear of the fleet. Gryfin, in his Wildwind Open 60, Moon, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, and Riv, in his Bandit 55, all succumbed to crashes and recorded DNFs. Lucy held her lead over Dess until the finish, as she crossed first, taking line honors. Dess crossed the finish second, followed by Rayz, Peter, and Trauemer.

Today’s winner was Peter (PeterSailor Resident), with Traeumer (traeumer66 Resident) second, and Lucy (LucyInTheSky Afarensis) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Note:
Lucy (LucyInTheSky Afarensis) and Moon (moonglownight Resident) both finished tied with 9 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
LucyInTheSky Afarensis 1 8
moonglownight Resident 3 6

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Lucy’s favor with having a first place finish over Moon’s third place finish as his best.


Dess (desspaa Resident) and Neil (eager2discover Resident) finished tied with 13 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.

Skipper Race 1 Race 2
desspaa Residentt 9 4
eager2discover Resident 4 9

In the last race, Dess breaks the tie with Neil with her fourth place finish over Neil’s nine point finish.


Jackson (Jacquimo Resident), Arwyn (Arwyn Silverweb), and Joshua (JoshuaMason7 Resident) all finished tied with 19 points. As they all have duplicate finishes in each race (DNF in Small Boats, and DNS in Big Boats) neither A8.1 nor A8.2 will satisfy breaking the tie, therefore they all remain tied in twelfth overall.

This weeks Trudeau Patchogue II Class Racing was the final event in the Eden Trudeau Regatta Week. We saw a great turnout with storm of sim in the first race but clearing weather in the second race. We also saw another great spectator turnout, with many showing up along the beach in the Eden Albatros region, at the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, the committee boat dock in the Breadnut region, and along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region.

The first race, on the North Sea Butterfly course, got off to a great start. However, towards the final leg of the course, as every racer entered the Nectarine region, they crashed. All recorded DNFs and it was decided to abandon race 1 with no points awarded. The second race, on the North Sea Copacabana course, saw the sims performing marvelously as no DNFs were recorded and close exciting racing prevailed.

More pictures after the results.

As such, todays regatta is therefore a 1 race event without points having to be awarded to determine the podium finshers as they are decided from the finish line order.

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.

Another record tying turnout featured in this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. This weeks turnout tied last weeks record turnout, with 18 boats showing up to race in the small boat fleet. We also had another great spectator turnout as the popular viewing spots of the Poseidon Center Spectator Pier in Eden Puffin, the shore in Eden Albatros, the committee boat dock in Breadnut, and the beaches of Lighthouse Isle in Ziziphus all had crowds watching the races. The sims themselves were relatively behaved as only a few DNFs were attributed to crossing crashes. The other DNFs were what Petra calls ‘corner tickling’, sailing right into the corner intersection of four sims.

The small boat fleet, racing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was made up of a majority of seven Bandit IFs. Three Shields Class, two Dolphin Moths, two Melges-24s, a Ktaba 20 MX Teleri, a Laser One, a Nacra 17, and a Flying Shadow made up the remainder of the small boat fleet. Racing got off to a quick start as half the small boat fleet was across the start line in 30 seconds. Peter, in his Laser One, recorded a nearly perfect start at 00:00:01. Kristaly, in her Shields Class, followed next at 00:00:03. Lucy, in her Melges-24, was next to cross at 00:00:05 with Beane, in her Melges-24, in tow at 00:00:06. I was next to cross, in my Dolphin Moth, right along with Stu, in his Bandit IF with Kate, both of us at 00:00:07. Cole, in her Nacra 17, was next to cross at 00:00:20 with ViV, in her Flying Shadow, right behind at 00:00:24. Jackson, in his Bandit IF, was next across at 00:00:29 with Joshua, in his Dolphin Moth, right behind at 00:00:31. Kurt, in his Bandit IF, was across next at 00:00:40 with Asami, in her Ktaba MX 20 Teleri, in tow at 00:00:45. Traeumer, in his Shields Class, was next to cross at 00:00:49 with Carlota, in her Bandit IF, crossing at 00:00:52. Cranston, in his Bandit IF with Shaylin, was across next at 00:00:54 while Neil, in his Bandit IF, crossed at 00:01:13. Susi, in her Bandit IF, crossed next at 00:01:45, with Dess, in her Shields Class, crossing at 00:02:28. I jumped out to the lead, in my speedy Dolphin Moth, pacing the pack as Joshua, in his Dolphin Moth, settled in right behind me. Beane, in her Melges-24, settled into third in the fleet as Cole, in her Nacra 17, and ViV, in her Flying Shadow, fell in right behind her. Peter, in his Laser One, after that jump on the start, fell behind to the quicker boats, to settle in behind the catamarans. Asami, in her Ktaba 20 MX Teleri, passed several of the slower Bandit IFs that started ahead of her to stay on Peter’s stern. Dess, in her Shields Class, coming from behind in her start fell in right behind Asami. Next up was the Bandit IF pack, with Carlota leading the small pack as Jackson fell in behind her. Neil was right behind as Cranston, with Shaylin, Kurt, and Susi all falling in behind him. Kristaly, in her Shields Class, Lucy, in her Melges-24, Stu, in his Bandit IF with Kate, and Traeumer, in his Shields Class, all met the crashing fate and unfortunately recorded DNFs. I held the pack lead, in my Dolphin Moth, and crossed the finish line first, taking line honors with Joshua, in his Dolphin Moth, crossing the finish line second. Beane, in her Melges-24, was next to cross third, as Cole, in her Nacra 17, and Viv, in her Flying Shadow, crossed right after her, 12 and 16 seconds apart, respectively. Peter, in his Laser One, was next to cross the finish line, with Asami, in her Ktaba 20 MX Teleri, and Dess, in her Shields Class, crossing right behind. The bandit IF pack was next to finish, as Carlota, Jackson, Neil, Cranston with Shaylin, Kurt and Susi all crossed the line.

The big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Butterfly course, was made up of a majority four TMS Ushuaias. Three Wildwind RC-44s, a Trudeau 12 Metre, an ACA33, a Wildwind AC45, a TMS One Design 65, and a Bandit 60 all made up the remainder of the big boat fleet. This race got off to a quick start just like the first, as Peter, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, not satisfied with his 1 second laser One start recorded a perfect 00:00:00 start. Beane, in her TMS One Design 65, was next across the start line at 00:00:03. Viv, in her Wildwind AC45, was next to cross at 00:00:06. Lucy, in her Wildwind RC-44, crossed next at 00:00:14 as Stu, in his TMS Ushuaia with Kate, was right on Lucy’s stern, crossing at 00:00:15. I was next to cross, in my TMS Ushuaia, at 00:00:21 with Cranston, in his Bandit 60 with Shaylin, crossing right behind me at 00:00:22. Traeumer, in his Wildwind RC-44, was across next at 00:00:31 as Cole, in her ACA33, followed right behind at 00:00:37. Susi, in her TMS Ushuaia, was next to cross at 00:01:06, with both Joshua, in his TMS Ushuaia, and Dess, in her Wildwind RC-44, both crossing on Susi’s stern at 00:01:07. ViV, in her speedy Wildwind AC45, did not hesitate on her acceleration, getting up on her foils to take off and pace the fleet out front. Beane, in her TMS One Design 65, settled in her spot behind ViV, as Peter, in his slightly slower Trudeau 12 Metre, fell back behind Beane and Cole, in her ACA33, to the middle of the fleet. I was right behind Peter, in my TMS Ushuaia, with Cranston, in his Bandit 60 with Shaylin, and Susi, in her TMS Ushuaia, settling in right behind me. Lucy, in her Wildwind RC-44, Stu, in his TMS Ushuaia with Kate, Traeumer, in his Wildwind RC-44, Joshua, in his TMS Ushuaia, and Dess, in her Wildwind RC-44 all crashed. Lucy, Traeumer, and Joshua all recorded DNFs while Stu and Dess received DSQs due to missing the first course mark in the Sapote region. ViV held her lead, in her Wildwind AC45, and crossed the finish line first to take line honors. Beane, in her TMS One Design 65, crossed the finish line second with Cole, in her ACA33, crossing the line third. Peter, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, was next to cross the line. I crossed the line next, in my TMS Ushuaia, with Cranston, in his Bandit 60 with Shaylin, and Susi, in her TMS Ushuaia, crossing next.
