This weeks Trudeau Classic Regatta saw great sailing weather and a nice turnout. The sims behaved for the fleet that assembled as there were no crashes during either race held. Spectator turn out was great as crowds assembled at the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, along the beaches in the Eden Albatros region, at Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus Region, and along Turtle Break Surf in the Eden Godwit region. The fleet itself was comprised of three Trudeau Runa IVs and two Trudeau Patchogue IIs.

Race Director: Rosie
Wind: 225° (SW), 9.25 m/s (18kts)

Race Notes:
Rosie (Arwyn Silverweb) and Cryptic (Cryptic Resident) both finished tied with 10 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.

Skipper Best Finish Next Best Finish
Arwyn Silverweb 4 6
Cryptic Resident 5 5

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Rosie’s favor with having a fourth place finish over Cryptic’s fifth place finish as her best.
