IF Star 25R Regatta – Feb 25th 2019

Turbulent sim sailing weather featured during this weeks Backwater Bay Yacht Club IF Star 25R Regatta. Specifically, one turbulent region, Farragut either ate or chewed every boat of the fleet resulting in four DNFs (Did Not Finish) across two races. This week was also Victor’s first as the sole Race Director at the helm of the race, as RL had other plans for me. All of Victor’s previous experience as a RD certainly paid off with handling unfortunate conditions that were on hand, in stride. This weeks fleet was comprised entirely of four Bandit 25Rs.

Race Director: Victor
Wind: S (180°) 18kts

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

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

Race Notes:
Max (Maximiliano Szondi) and Laured (laured Cabassoun) finished tied with 3 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
Maximiliano Szondi 2 1
laured Cabassoun 1 2

In the last race, Max breaks the tie with Laured with his first place finish over Laured’s second place finish.
