The first IF Star 25R Regatta of 2019 kicked off with some calm sailing weather and a nice turnout. The Bingo Strait regions behaved well as only one DNF (Did Not Finish) was attributed to rough region crossings (the other two DNFs resulting from connection issues). Spectators gathered along the bay front of the Villa in the Twice Bitten region, the slip pier in the Woodfall region, and the committee boat dock. The fleet itself, racing on the BBYC 10 and BBYC 05 courses, was comprised of a majority of six The Mesh Shop Star Class. Two Bandit 25Rs and one Bandit IF made up the remainder of the fleet.

Race Director: Daenerys
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 ViV (vivipezz Resident), with Moon (moonglownight Resident) second, and Ian (IanPixel Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Moon (moonglownight Resident) and Ian (IanPixel Resident) finished tied with 5 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 3 2
IanPixel Resident 2 3

In the last race, Moon breaks the tie with Ian with his second place finish over Ian’s third place finish.


Jackson (Jacquimo Resident) and Nikki (Nikki Lacrima) 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
Jacquimo Resident 4 6
Nikki Lacrima 5 5

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