Mild sim sailing weather, with another great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The regions of the North Sea were behaved and calm for most with only three DNFs (Did Not Finish) recorded on the day, one during the first race and two during the second race respectively. The crowds on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock, in the Eden Jakana region, were cheering on this weeks Bandit skippers, as they put on a great display of fleet racing. This weeks fleet, sailing a 2 lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop course and a spin around the North Sea Manta Reverse course, was comprised of a majority of nine Bandit IFs, seven sailing single-handed and two sailing with crew respectively. Seven Bandit 22 LTEs and one Bandit 25r rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Edited: A skippers boat type was misidentified for the second race. This has been corrected and the results adjusted.

Race Director: Cryptic
Wind: SW (225°) 11kts

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

Today’s winner was Jenna (jnx1e Resident), with Moon (moonglownight Resident) second, and Sandra (WWWAAAA 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.

Race Notes:
JUN was disqualified (DSQ) during the first and second race for sailing with an incorrect race wind set.


Rugger was disqualified (DSQ) during the first race for finishing under protest while failing to complete a 360° penalty turn due to a rule 13 While Tacking foul against another skipper.

13 WHILE TACKING
After a boat passes head to wind, she shall keep clear of other boats until she is on a close-hauled course.
During that time rules 10, 11 and 12 do not apply. If two boats are subject to this rule at the same time,
the one on the other’s port side or the one astern shall keep clear.
