26 nov 2022 race_004

From the left to the right (in Bandit IFs): Red, Julie, Jack, Darb & Kit, Siri, Moon, and Rugger. Committee boat: Daenerys, and Tamarushka.

The last North Sea Bandit IF regatta for November, 2022, took place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. We started with seven Bandit IFs. One Bandit IF had crew on board. We had a great start and Rugger took the lead right away. He and Red hit a corner of a region and had to give up. Julie then took a lead and was chased by Moon. Siri and Jack would battle for third place all day. Luckily there were no guns on board :).

In the second race we left with five boats. Julie immediately took the lead again. Siri and Jack chased Moon, but he stayed ahead of them. Towards the end of the match, fate struck for Julie. She lost control of her boat and sailed directly against the huts in the region of Clementine. As a result, Moon and Jack overtook her, but in the end she was still second.

There were two DNFs (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Moon (moonglownight Resident) and Julie (JulieRoyale Resident) finished tied with 3 points. As they both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing 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
moonglownight Resident 2 1
JulieRoyale Resident 1 2

In the last race, Moon breaks the tie with Julei with his first place finish over Julie’s second place finish.


Jack (Jacquimo Resident) and Siri (Sirius Rosca) finished tied with 7 points. As they both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing 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
Jacquimo Resident 4 3
Sirius Rosca 3 4

In the last race, Jack breaks the tie with Siri with his third place finish over Siri’s fourth place finish.


Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) and Red (RedHeadJo Resident) both finished tied with 12 points. As they both have the exact same finishes,  DNFs (Did Not Finish) during the first race and DNSs (Did Not Start) for the second race, neither Rule A8.1 or Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking their tie. Therefore, Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) and Red (RedHeadJo Resident) both remain tied in sixth place overall.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, rising to 21 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were well behaved for most as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Both DNFs, in both races, were from the same skipper crashing from her internet connection failing and then removing her boat. The crowds that assembled on the lighthouse observation deck on the island in the Ziziphus region, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, indulged in the fresh fleet-foiled feline fun on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Triple Pink and the North Sea Copacabana Reverse courses, was made up of seven The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows in the first race. The second race saw four single-handed Flying Shadows merge into two crewed boats, with another skipper switching to his TMS Nacra 17.

The first DNF, occurring during the small boat portion, was due to a skipper crashing on a region border crossing. The remaining DNF, occurring during the big boat portion, was due to a skipper crashing while crossing over region corners. The crowds that gathered along the shores of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, savored a thrilling display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

A beautiful Saturday afternoon in November was the scene for this weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta. We started with nine bandit IFs. Three skippers sailed west of Satsuma and six skippers then sailed east of Satsuma, which proved to be the best route in both races. At the first mark, Red took the lead, followed by Jack, Rugger and Max. Julie and Moon followed at a distance. But Julie and Max found a sandbar and fell behind. Rugger took his chances and took the lead. Red sat in his wake and Moon followed at a distance. Behind it Sea, Jack, and Siri. Fate struck for Red and we had to move on without her. Moon, meanwhile, was hot on Rugger’s heels, but he didn’t give in a straw. In the background Sea, Jack, Julie, and Max would battle for third place

In the second race we started again with nine skippers. Max had a really good start. Closely followed by Julie, Jack, Red, and Sea. Halfway through the race, Julie took over the lead from Max. Siri and Red followed behind Sea, Moon, and Rugger. On the way back it became clear that the battle was not over yet. Julie slowly moved away from the fleet. behind her would be Moon, Siri, Max, and Red vying for second place

There were three DNFs (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Calm to slightly choppy seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. All three DNFs, one occurring during the small boat portion and two during the big boat portion, were the results of skippers crossing over region corners. The two DNFs during the big boat portion were the direct results of a particularly nasty corner rounding, around the northern tip of the island in the Ziziphus region, amongst a pack of six of the fleet at that point. The crowds that gathered along the beaches of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, delighted in a rousing display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea CCW (counter-clockwise) course, was made up of a majority of ten Bandit 22 LTEs. Two Bandit IFs, and two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, one sailing crewed and one single-handed respectively, rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Roundabout course, was made up of a majority of four TMS I-Mocca 60s. Three WildWind Open 60s, and one TMS One Design 65 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

With a moderate breeze of 15 knots out of the southwest, rising to a fresh breeze of 18 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF, occurring during the first race, was due to a skippers internet connection dying on her during the race. The crowds that gathered on the beaches of the island in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, were thrilled by an exciting display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta and North Sea Manta Reverse courses, was made up of a split majority of four Bandit IFs, and four Bandit 22 LTEs. One Bandit 25 R, and one Bandit 60 rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet in the first race. One Bandit IF skipper opted to switch to her Bandit 22, and another skipper joined the fleet with a Bandit 22 for the second race.

Another beautiful Saturday afternoon in November was the backdrop for this weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta. We started with seven Bandit IFs. The fleet set out together for the first mark. There Julie took the lead, followed by Jack and they immediately cut a gap with the five pursuers. Max thought he had found a shortcut but got stuck under the land bridge at the island in the Genip region. On the way to the third mark, Julie and Jack kept the lead and were followed by Rugger, Siri and Moon. Julie also slowly distanced herself from Jack. However, the chasing three were not done with each other yet. Siri and Moon had launched the attack on Rugger and they would fight for third place.

In the second race, we started again with seven skippers. Jack had a really good start. Closely followed by Max, Julie, Rugger and Siri. En route to the first mark, Julie and Rugger separated from the fleet. This was to no avail, as Jack and Max were the first to round the mark. Followed by Julie, Siri, Rugger and Moon. On our way to the second mark we lost Darb and not much later Rugger fell too. So we were left with five skippers. By the third mark, Julie and Siri had caught up with Jack and Max. These four skippers seemed to be fighting for the win, but Moon followed in the wake of the foursome. In the Eden Auk region, Siri was the first to round the mark, but Jack was next to him and had to give Siri space. Max and Julie where behind them. Julie ran into trouble and dropped back to fifth. But she didn’t give up and gave up the chase, hoping for a good seat. Siri finished first, followed at a distance by Jack and Julie.

There were two DNFs (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. With a moderate breeze of 15 knots out of the southwest, rising to a fresh breeze of 18 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were mostly well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF, recorded during the first race, was due to a skipper crashing while crossing across region corners. The crowds that gathered on the shores on the islands in the Ziziphus, and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, thrilled in the energetic fleet-foiled feline frenzy on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Bowline and North Sea Cat Fight 01 courses, was made up of six The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, four sailing single-handed and two crewed respectively, for the first race fleet. One Flying Shadow skipper switched to his TMS Nacra 17 for the second race.
