It was a beautiful winter day in the North Sea when we were again allowed to greet 8 bandit IFs. 6 skippers had brought the crew. The start went smoothly and three boats took the lead immediately, these were followed by the remaining boats. Soon one of the three boats of the other two had sailed away.
The start of the second race went flawlessly than the first, and with a compact fleet we headed for the first buoy. After the race progressed, there were mutual battles.
With a DSQ (Disqualified) and no DNFs (Did Not Finish), it was again a sporting, if not successful, day in The North Sea

Today’s winner was Ian (IanPixel Resident), with Siri (Sirius Rosca) second, and Rugger (Ruggeromare Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.
BlackSpark (BlackSpark Resident) was disqualified (DSQ) during the second race for sailing an incorrect course, he missed the white buoy in the Eden Jakana region, the last mark on the course.
Siri (Sirius Rosca) and Rugger (Ruggeromare Resident) 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|
With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Sirius’ favor with having a second place finish over Ruggeromare’s third place finish as his best.
