A great crowd and sailing weather featured during this weeks Backwater Bay Yacht Club Open Regatta. The regatta, formerly the North Sea Open Regatta, was kicking off at it’s new home at the Backwater Bay Yacht Club in the Woodfall region. We saw a large number of people gather at the slip pier in the Woodfall region, in front of Elbag Gable’s home in the Twice Bitten region, and on the race dock at the Woodfall region race line. The sims in the Bingo Strait behaved well as we saw no crashes or DNFs (Did Not Finish) on the day. This weeks small boat fleet, racing on the BBYC Lighthouse Race course, was made up of a majority of six Bandit IFs. Two Bandit 25s, one The Mesh Shop Flying Shadow, and one Shields Class made up the remainder of the small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, racing on the BBYC 06 course, was comprised of a majority of two Trudeau 12 Metres and one lone The Mesh Shop One Design 65.

Race Director: Cryptic
Wind: SE (135°) 18kts

Note:
Did Not Finish (DNF) = number of finish +1
Did Not Start (DNS) = number of start +1

Today’s winner was Bianca (TgBianca Resident), with ViV (vivipezz Resident) second, and Alexandre (ramuf Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate and to the SLCG for assisting with race duties.

Race Notes:
Alexandre (ramuf Resident) and Moon (moonglownight Resident) both finished tied with 6 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
ramuf Resident 2 4
moonglownight Resident 3 3

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Alexandre’s favor with having a second place finish over Moon’s third place finish as his best.

  1. Hiya,
    every change leaves doubts if it’s the right step until some wipe those doubts out. Let me start doing the first doubt wiper. The courses on Wednesday were awesome chosen for the small boats and specially for the big boats. The first course was nice, but not really challenging, very good for beginners and fit tactic sailing for experts as well. The second course was longer than it was in the past at NS. I personally love the longer courses and with the long upwind legs and the islands between it was a great challenge for exact sailing and navigating.
    All together I say it was a great step to go here AND you the BBYC-Raceteam have done an awesome job.

    Hugs and kisses
    Bianca
