This weeks Backwater Bay Yacht Club Open Regatta saw some calm sim sailing weather with a nice fleet turnout. The regions of Bingo Strait behaved well as only one of the three DNFs (Did Not Finish) on the day was directly attributed to a bad region crossing. The other two DNFs were from both sailors pulling their boats early from sailing both an incorrect course and frustration with their own boat.

The fleet turnout this week was nice as the small boat fleet, sailing on BBYC Olympic Course (Long), was comprised of a slim majority of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows. Two TMS Nacra 17s, two Bandit IFs, two Bandit 25Rs, and one TMS Star Class made up the remainder of the small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the BBYC 12 course, was comprised of two TMS One Design 65s, one TMS Volvo Open 70, one TMS Ushuaia, one Wildwind Open 60, and one Wildwind AC-45.

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 Nikki (Nikki Lacrima), with Isa (isab DeCuir) second, and ViV (vivipezz Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Nikki (Nikki Lacrima) and Isa (isab DeCuir) 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
Nikki Lacrima 2 4
isab DeCuir 3 3

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


Bianca (TgBianca Resident) and Max (Maximiliano Szondi) both finished tied with 13 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
TgBianca Resident 2 11
Maximiliano Szondi 6 7

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


Riz (RIZLER Rodex) and Lilita (lilita Cifuentes) both finished tied with 14 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
RIZLER Rodex 6 8
lilita Cifuentes 7 7

Rayz (Rayzza Rubble) and Ana (Ana Harcourt) both finished tied with 15 points. As both have the exact same finishes in each race, a DNF (Did Not Finish) in the small boat portion and a DNS (Did Not Start) in the big boat portion, neither Rule A8.1 or Rule A8.2 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking their tie. Therefore, Rayz and Ana remain tied in eleventh place overall.
