Great sim sailing weather and a large fleet turnout featured during this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The regions of The North Sea were calm and well behaved as only two DNFs (Did Not Finish), were recorded on the day. Of those two DNFs, one was due to a skipper pulling her boat after her computer had issues, and the other DNF was due to a skipper crashing. The crowds that gathered along the beaches of the islands in the Ziziphus, Genip, and Eden Auk regions, as well as on the small race docks in the Eden Jakana and Eden Jeager regions, were treated to some great fleet racing from this weeks Bandit skippers as they sailed along both courses for our monthly There and Back Again series ranging the full width of the estate. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Curlew to Jaeger 01 and North Sea Scampi courses, was made up of a majority of nine Bandit 22 LTEs. Five Bandit IFs, three sailing single-handed and two sailing with crew respectively, and two Bandit 25Rs rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Today’s winner was Yvonne (YvonneDearly Resident), with Jenna (jnx1e Resident) second, and Daenerys (blondij Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate and to the SLCG for helping with race duties.
Lokia (Lokia Float) and Meireles (Meireles Diabolito) both finished the first race tied at the finishing line with a time of 15:31. As their final time also remains tied, both having sailed the same boat, Rule A7 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing is used to score this tie:
“If boats are tied at the finishing line or if a handicap or rating system is used and boats have equal corrected times, the points for the place for which the boats have tied and for the place(s) immediately below shall be added together and divided equally. Boats tied for a race prize shall share it or be given equal prizes.“
Therefore, both Lokia and Meireles receive 10.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 10 and 11, added together and divided equally.
Jenna (jnx1e Resident) and Daenerys (blondij 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 Jenna’s favor with having a second place finish over Daenerys’s third place finish as her best.
