Smooth to stormy seas, with another great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The regions of The North Sea started out calm for the duration of the first race, as no DNFs (Did Not Finish) or crashes occurred during the race. The seas turned stormy for some during the second race, as five DNFs were recorded. Of the five DNFs, three were due to skippers crashing and the remaining two were due to skippers pulling their boats from either navigation HUD failure or frustration. The spectators on hand, on the small race dock and the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, and on the observation deck of the lighthouse on the island in the Ziziphus region, were reveling in the great sailing displayed by this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea 02 course and North Sea Olympic Course (Short), was comprised of a majority of nine Bandit IFs, seven sailing single-handed and two sailing with crew respectively. Four Bandit 25Rs made up the remainder of this weeks Bandit fleet.

Race Notes:
Max (Maximiliano Szondi) and Nihiwatu (Nihiwatu Resident) both finished tied with 16 points. Rule A8.1 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing is used to break this tie:

Skipper Best Finish Next Best Finish
Maximiliano Szondi 6 10
Nihiwatu Resident 7 9

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