Trudeau Classic Regatta – Feb 8th 2018

This weeks Trudeau Classic Regatta saw some smooth sim weather with a great crowd turnout. The sims behaved for both races as there were no crashes recorded (Joshua had RL grab him for a DNF in the first race). Spectators crowded along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region and along the beaches in the Eden Albatros region to watch the Trudeau fleet in action. This weeks fleet was composed of four Patchogue IIs in the first race with two Runa IVs joining in the second race.

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

Today’s winner was Rosie (Arwyn Silverweb), with Howard (hallveis Resident) second, and Cryptic (Cryptic Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Moon was unfortunately Disqualified (DSQ) from race 2 for failing to complete a penalty turn after committing a penalty.

Moon (moonglownight Resident) and Joshua (JoshuaMason7 Resident) finished tied with 9 points. As they both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the 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 5 4
JoshuaMason7 Resident 4 5

In the last race, Moon breaks the tie with Joshua with his fourth place finish over Joshua’s fifth place finish.
