Saturday afternoon, it was a beautiful day for sailing. This time we had seven Bandit IFs, including two with crew.
The North Sea regions behaved very well.

The first race went smoothly, however, the race was determined quite far in the beginning. Almost half of the skippers turned to the first mark too early, making it quite difficult for them to round well. The other half of the skippers immediately took the lead here. There was a fight for second place later in the race. Everyone adhered to the rules this time.

The second race went smoothly and the fleet stayed together until the first mark. There, two boats split off from the rest. However, one of the two skippers missed the gate and then gave up. The other half of the fleet took a different route to the gate. Then fate satisfied three skippers who sailed one after the other and the first of whom had lost their way.

We had three DSQs (Disqualified) and one DNF (Did Not Finish) through both races, and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

More pictures after the results.

Today’s winner was Moon (moonglownight 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.

Race Notes:
Siri (Sirius Rosca),  Max (Maximiliano Szondi), Ultra (ultramantra Resident) were disqualified (DSQ) during the second race for sailing an incorrect course, all missing the last course mark in the Eden Kittiwake region.


Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) and Ultra (ultramantra Resident) both finished tied with 7 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
Ruggeromare Resident 1 6
ultramantra Resident 3 4

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Rugger’s favor with having a first place finish over Ultra’s third place as his best.


Jack (Jacquimo Resident) and Julie (JulieRoyale Resident) both finished tied with 8 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
Jacquimo Resident 3 5
JulieRoyale Resident 4 4

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