A great gathering of spectators turned out this week to watch a display of fun racing in smooth sailing sim weather during the Backwater Bay Yacht Club Cat Fight. Crowds continued their trend of flocking to the committee boat dock in the Woodfall region and the water front pier along the villa in the Twice Bitten region. The fleet itself responded in kind to the great sailing weather with no DNFs (Did Not Finish) on the day. This weeks fleet of catamarans, sailing on the BBYC 12 and BBYC 04 Rev 1 courses, was comprised of a majority of four The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows and one lone TMS Nacra 17.

Today’s winner was Isa (isab DeCuir), with Daenerys (blondij Resident) second, and Rayz (Rayzza Rubble) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.
Daenerys (blondij Resident), Rayz (Rayzza Rubble), and Julnara (Julnara Resident) all 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|
With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Daenerys’s favor with having a first place finish over Rayz’s second place finish Julnara’s third place finish as their best. Subsequently, Rayz breaks the remaining tie with his second place best finish over Julnara’s third place best finish.
