Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, The North Sea regions were well behaved again, as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF, occurring during the second race, was attributed to a skipper crashing as he crossed over region corners. The crowds that gathered on the shores 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, reveled in an energetic display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Half Mane and North Sea Copacabana courses, was made up of a majority of seven Bandit 22 LTEs. Two Bandit IFs, one sailing crewed and one single-handed respectively, one Bandit 25r, and one Bandit 50/3 rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Today’s winner was Julie (JulieRoyale Resident), with Moon (moonglownight Resident) second, and Ester (citacg Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate and to the SLCG for helping with race duties.

Race Notes:
Moon (moonglownight Resident) and Ester (citacg Resident) both finished the first race tied at the finishing line with a time of 15:30. As their final time also remains tied, as they both sailed the same boat, Rule A7 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to score this tie:

If boats are tied at the finishing line or if a handicap or rating system is used and boats have equal corrected times, the points for the place for which the boats have tied and for the place(s) immediately below shall be added together and divided equally. Boats tied for a race prize shall share it or be given equal prizes.

Therefore, both Moon and Ester receive 6.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 6 and 7, added together and divided equally.


Zimtzicke (Nicole Myhre) and Sea (filax Carter) finished tied with 9 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
Nicole Myhre 5 4
filax Carter 4 5

In the last race, Zimtzicke breaks the tie with Sea with her fourth place finish over Sea’s fifth place finish.


Red (RedHeadJO Resident) and Emileigh (Emileigh Starbrook) both finished tied with 14 points. Rule A8.1 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing 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.

From the left to the right (in Bandit IFs): Emi & Nicole, Moon, Red & Kim, Rugger, Siri, Zero, and Julie. Committee boat: Daenerys. Dock: Tamarushka.

Another beautiful Saturday afternoon in August was the scene for this weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta. We started with seven Bandit IFs. Two of the seven bandit IFs had crew on board.

At the start of the first race, three skippers immediately took a slight lead. By the second mark the leading group had fallen apart. The four skippers who stayed behind had connected with the skipper who sailed in third place. However, by the end of the next mark, he took over the second place. During the remainder of the race, the fleet broke in two again and the first three skippers took a big lead over the rest. This lead was never relinquished. Sadly, after this race, a skipper had to cancel the following races due to bad luck.

In the second race we left with seven Bandit IFs. The skippers soon chose their own path to the first mark. And there it turned out that the fleet was still close together. Two groups of three skippers were formed, but the distance between the two groups remained small. The skippers in the groups turned out to be evenly matched. This made it an exciting race. Things got even more exciting when the second group caught up with the first group. Now we had the whole fleet of six boats together again. One skipper had to let the other five go, and in the Guanabana region channel, we had four leaders who did not yield an inch to the other skippers. At the last mark a skipper got stuck in a sandbank and another skipper had to let the other two skippers go.

And there was still a final race to go and a new skipper came forward, so we were again with seven boats.
At the start of the third race, one skipper started on port and the other on starboard tack, the first skipper calculated this correctly and immediately took the lead. The fleet had to set sail to catch up with the first skipper. At the first mark they had done that, a fleet of six boats, the seventh boat had fallen a bit behind, they were heading for the turning point. However, this match would go smoothly again.

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

A beautiful Saturday afternoon was the scene for the first North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for August 2022. We started with eight Bandit IFs. Four of the eight bandit IFs had crew on board.

Immediately after the start, the fleet split up. Five boats turned west while the other boats continued south.
At the first mark the ships came together again, but by then a leading group of four, Red, Moon, Siri, Rugger, boats had already formed. This group stayed together until the penultimate mark. Here Siri and Moon distanced themselves from their companions. They would fight for first place. A boat should have stopped the race but another skipper joined the party.

In the second race, we left with eight Bandit IFs. Immediately after the start, a skipper split off from the fleet to join the fleet at the first mark. En route to the statues of Eden, the fleet seemed to be falling apart, but during the battle for second and third place, the three skippers left behind had a chance to rejoin the leading group. However, the front runner saw an opportunity to escape the violence that took place behind him. En route to the southernmost part of the route, the group split in two again. At the turning point it was already clear who would come second.

The third race would be decisive for the result. The fleet moved together towards the first mark. The fleet was still together when they passed the first mark. At the turning point, the cards would be shuffled for the final battle to the finish.

There were one DNF (Did Not Finish) and one DSQ (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Script issues were behind both DNFs, one in each race, as skippers pulled their boats in both instances, when their boat scripts stopped responding. The crowds that gathered on 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, cheered on the frantic fleet-foiled feline flurry on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Half Mane and North Sea Extreme Reverse courses, was made up of a majority of five The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, four sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively. One WildWind AC-62, and one WildWind AC-45 rounded out this weeks catamaran fleet in the first race.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Copacabana course, was made up of a majority of four Bandit 22 LTEs. Two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, one sailing crewed and one single-handed, and two Bandit IFs, one crewed and one single-handed, rounded out this weeks small boat fleet.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the first North Sea Bandit Regatta for August, 2022. The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as four DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Three DNFs were due to skippers crashing while crossing over region corners. The remaining DNF was due to a skipper’s router causing him connection issues during the second race, resulting in him pulling his boat. The crowds that gathered on the shores of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on a competitive display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea 02 and North Sea 01 courses, was made up of a majority of seven Bandit 22 LTEs. Two Bandit IFs, split evenly with one crewed and one single-handed respectively, rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

The last North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for July, 2022, took place on another beautiful Saturday afternoon. We started with six Bandit IFs. A compact fleet of five Bandit Ifs sailed to the first turning point. Here two skippers took a slight lead over the fleet. On the way to the west, a third skipper joined the leaders. One of the front runners sailed away from his companions and the remaining two skippers competed for second place.

The second race we left with six Bandit IFs. On the way to the first mark a skipper broke down and had to let the fleet go. The remaining skippers slowly dispersed between the islands of Fruit. At the turning point in the south, the entire fleet scattered and we were left with lone skippers. However, there was still a fight in the tail for fifth place. In the last leg, two skippers came close to each other and competed for third place. This battle would last until the finish line.

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