North Sea Open Regatta – July 12th 2017

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta saw some great sim weather with a tremendous turn out of racers. The sims behaved well as there were only 3 DNFs on the day for both races combined. We had a great turnout as 16 racers were in the small boat fleet. Spectator turnout was good as both Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region, and the shore in the Eden Alabatros region saw a huge crowd along with the spectators on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier, in the Eden Puffin region, and the committee boat dock, in the Breadnut Region.

Also a small apology as I was not able to attend today’s races so this results post write-up section will be slightly abridged from my usual results posts.

The small boat fleet, racing a 3 lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop course, was made up of a majority of six Bandit IFs. The remainder of the small boat fleet was made up of four Flying Shadows (two crewed), two Quest Melges-24s, two Shields Class, a Bandit 25, and a Breezy 9er (which we do not have a handicap for and is notated as Not Available (N/A) in the results table).

The big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Outer Inner Loop (NS-OIL Rev1) course, was made up of a split majority of three Quest IACCs and three Wildwind Open 60s. A Wildwind RC-44, a Wildwind AC-45, a TMS One Design 65, and a TMS Ushuaia made up the remainder of the big boat fleet.

Race Director: Petra

Race Notes:
Penny (Penelope Debruyere), Lampoon (Lampoon Destiny), Rugger (ruggeromare Resident), and Palani (Palani Allen) were all unfortunately disqualified (DSQ) due to sailing the incorrect course in the Big Boats race.


Neil (eager2discover Resident) and Lampoon (Lampoon Destiny) both finished tied with 8 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.

Stormy seas and a great spectator turn out featured in this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The North Sea sims, although restarted 3 hours before racing started still were turbulent as they caused several crashes and DNFs in each race. Spectators turnout this week was great as we had crowds gathered at the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, the committee boat dock in the Breadnut Region, along the shore in the Eden Albatros region, and along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. This weeks races were also an all Bandit IF affair as the entire fleet was IFs.

The first race, on the North Sea Manta course, saw a nice clean start from the fleet. Carlota, with Gabi, got things underway as she crossed the start line at 00:00:03. Jackson was next across the start line at 00:00:06. Neil was across the start line next at 00:00:13 followed by Markz at 00:00:14. Rayz was next to cross the start line at 00:00:18, followed by Noel, at 00:00:31, Alexandre, at 00:01:33, and Arwyn, with Rurua, at 00:01:48. Carlota, with Gabi, took off, pacing the fleet for the entire course. Jackson was right on her stern up to the first mark in the Sapote region, when his boat stopped responding and he abandoned the race, taking a DNF. Neil was settled in just behind them while Markz and Rayz fought neck and neck until both crashed on crossings, also taking DNFs. Noel was just aft of Markz and Ray, as Alexandre was just on his stern but unfortunately also crashed and recorded a DNF. Arwyn, with Rurua, settled in at the rear of the fleet. Carlota, with Gabi, crossed the finish line first, taking line honors, followed by Neil, crossing second. Noel crossed next followed by Arwyn with Rurua.

The second race, a 3 lap jaunt on the North Sea Short Loop course, saw the majority of the fleet off to a quick start as three quarters of the sailors were across the start line before 28 seconds ticked off the race clock. Noel got things started as he crossed the start line at 00:00:02. Rayz and Alexandre were both next to cross the start line at 00:00:06. Carlota, with Gabi, was across the start line next at 00:00:10. Jackson was next to cross the start line at 00:00:22 followed by Neil at 00:00:27, and Arwyn with Rurua at 00:00:30. Elbag was across the start line next at 00:01:18 with Moon right on his stern at 00:01:19. Carlota, with Gabi, and Alexandre both had cleaner windward lines across the start line and passed Noel on the first leg of the course. Noel settled into third in the fleet as Neil, Jackson, and Rayz were neck and neck on his stern. Jackson unfortunately crashed on a crossing and recorded a DNF. Arwyn, with Rurua, Elbag, and Moon also wound up recording DNFs as Arwyn and Moon crashed, and Elbag’s boat stopped responding causing him to abandon the race. Gabi, crewing for Carlota, wound up crashing during the second lap, leaving Carlota single handed as Alexandre overtook her and gained the lead. Alexandre held onto that lead as he crossed the finish line first, taking line honors. Carlota crossed the finish line second, followed by Noel, Neil, and Rayz.

This was the first Bandit Regatta and first series of races for The North Sea, for the new year. We had a nice turnout of sailors in today’s fleet with a majority of seven Bandit IFs and one Bandit 60. The sims themselves were well behaved as we only had two DNFs to a sim crossing on the day. The spectators came out cheering for our sailors along the usual spots in the Eden Alabtros, Eden Puffin, Breadnut, and Ziziphus regions.

On the dock: Jene, Karen, Peachie, and Petra.

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta featured a varied fleet and some decent sim weather. The fleets in both portions of the regatta saw a nice variety of boats with no dominant majority from anyone class. The sims behaved with only 1 DNF in the small boats portion and 2 DNFs in the big boats portion recorded. Spectators again turned out in impressive 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.

The small boat fleet, racing a 2 lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop course, was made up of a triple majority of two Quest Melges-24s, two Bandit IFs, and two Shields Class. A Dolphin Moth, a TMS Nacra 17, a Ktaba 20 MX Teleri, and a Trudeau Patchogue II made up the remainder of the small boat fleet. Things got off really quickly as the entire fleet was over the start line before the race timer ticked off 20 seconds. Lucy, in her Melges-24, was across first with an almost perfect 00:00:01 followed by myself, in my Dolphin Moth, Asami, in her Teleri, and Kurt, in his Patchogue II, all at 00:00:02. Kirstaly, in her Shields Class, was next to cross at 00:00:03 followed by Beane, in her Melges-24, and Neil, in his Bandit IF, both at 00:00:04. Traeumer, in his Shields Class, was next to cross at 00:00:10 followed by Carlota, in her Bandit IF, at 00:00:16, and Cole, in her Nacra 17, at 00:00:19. I quickly jumped out in front, in my speedier Dolphin Moth, to pace the fleet with, Beane, in her Melges-24, Cole, in her Nacra 17, and Lucy, in her Melges-24, falling in right behind me. Kristaly, in her Shields Class, settled in the middle of the pack with Asami, in her Teleri 2, Carlota, in her Bandit IF, Neil, in his Bandit IF, and Kurt, in his Patchogue II, all falling in behind her. Traeumer unfortunately crashed and recorded a DNF. The fleet order held from there with myself crossing the finish line first, followed by Beane, Cole, Lucy, Kristaly, Asami, Carlota, Neil, and finally Kurt.

The big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Inner Outer Loop (NS-OIL Rev1) course, was made up of a split majority two Wildwind RC-44s, and two TMS One Design 65s. The remainder of the big boat fleet was comprised of a Trudeau 12 Metre, a Bandit 55, and a TMS Ushuaia. The big boat portion start was almost as quick as the small boat portion, with the vast majority of the fleet crossing the start line before 30 seconds. Cole, in her Trudeau 12 Metre, and Lucy, in her Wildwind RC-44, got things started with both crossing the start line at 00:00:06. Beane, in her One Design 65, was next to cross at 00:00:08 followed by myself, in my Ushuaia, at 00:00:18. Traeumer, in his RC-44, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:20, with new comer to North Sea racing Jene, in her One Design 65, following at 00:00:30, and Riv, in his Bandit 55, crossing at 00:01:16. Beane, in her faster One Design 65, quickly jumped into the lead with Lucy and Traeumer, each in their own just as speedy RC-44s, falling in right behind her. Jene, in her One Design 65, settled in right behind them with myself, in my Ushuaia, following along behind. Cole, in her Trudeau 12 Metre, and Riv, in his Bandit 55, both unfortunately crashed and recorded DNFs. Beane held her lead, crossing the finish line first followed by Lucy, Traeumer, Jene, and then myself.
