Stormy conditions that turned calmer featured in this weeks Backwater Bay Yacht Club IF Star 25R Regatta. The regions of Bingo Strait started out choppy as both DNFs (Did Not Finish) on the day were recorded during the first race due to crashes from poor region stability. Conditions improved dramatically for the second race as every boat in the fleet finished with reports of smooth sailing sim weather. This weeks fleet, racing on BBYC Lighthouse Race and BBYC Olympic Course (Long), was comprised of a majority of five Bandit 25Rs with one lone Bandit IF making up the remainder of the fleet.

Note: The results have been updated after a final time sorting error was corrected in the second race.

Today’s winner was Laured (laured Cabassoun), with Max (Maximiliano Szondi) second, and Nikki (Nikki Lacrima) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
During the first race, Rossafiore (rossamare Resident) rounded the fourth mark, the island in the Nimitz region, incorrectly and was therefore disqualified (DSQ) for incorrect course.


During the second race, Lilita (lilita Cifuentes) missed all the marks on the course and was therefore disqualified (DSQ) for incorrect course.


Max (Maximiliano Szondi) and Nikki (Nikki Lacrima) 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
Maximiliano Szondi 1 5
Nikki Lacrima 3 3

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