Did you try by using the web whois tool provided at https://www.ripe.net/,
or did you use a Torified command-line whois? I can reproduce the 201 error
on the former, but the latter worked after two tries (first try told me that
I had exceeded the rate limit and had to wait 85 more seconds).
whois servers are notorious for having very tight rate limiting on requests;
maybe the RIPE web app is even more limiting.
