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.

Skipper Race 1 Race 2
vivipezz Resident 5 1
Blair Karas 1 5

In the last race, ViV breaks the tie with Blair with her first place finish over Blair’s fifth place finish.


Palani (Palani Allen) and Rosie (Arwyn Silverweb) both finished tied with 21 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.

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta featured another great fleet and spectator turnout. The small boat portion saw a fleet of 17 boats while the big boat portion had another 13 boats. Spectators again crowded the small race dock in the Eden Puffin region , as well as the beaches in the Eden Alabatros region, and Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. The sims themselves behaved well as we only saw three Did Not Finishes (DNF) on the day. Plus, this Open Regatta was the first race that Daenerys was the lead Race Director for. We congratulate Daenerys after completing several weeks of Race Director training in The North Sea.

Three Bandit 25s, three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Nacra 17s, two Trudeau Patchogue IIs, two Shields Class, one TMS Flying Shadow, one Quest Melges-24, and one Trudeau One rounded out the small boat fleet.

On the dock: Joshua, Maddie, Penny, and Petra.

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta debuted our shiny new dock in Eden Puffin. Petra redesigned the race line area in Breadnut, moving the dock into the adjacent Eden Puffin region and clearing up more room around the committee boat. The dock, created by Petra, is larger than the old one and affords a 360° view of the surrounding sea and courses being raced. This will also help alleviate any lag created by crowds gathering on the dock during the pre-start and start phase of our races, by moving them farther away out of immediate draw distance view. The sims also behaved for us today, as we only had 2 DNFs (Did Not Finish) recorded on the day. Plus, we had a larger crowd gather on the new dock along with the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in Eden Puffin.

This weeks small boat fleet, racing 3 laps on the North Sea Short Loop Course, was comprised of a split majority of three bandit 25s and three Bandit IFs. The remainder of the small boat fleet was made up of two TMS Flying Shadows, one Dolphin Moth, one TMS Nacra 17, one Trudeau One, and one Trudeau Leetle Cat II. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Copacabana course, was made up of a majority of three TMS One Design 65s.
