Calms seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. With a moderate breeze of 11 knots coming out of the southwest, The North Sea regions were behaved for most as only one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF was due to a skippers SL viewer freezing on them in the middle of a region. The crowds that gathered on the shores of the island in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on some exciting fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Olympic Short Reverse and North Sea WC Reach 2 courses, was made up of a majority of six Bandit 22 LTEs. Four Bandit IFs, three sailing single-handed and one sailing crewed respectively, rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Today’s winner was Emileigh (Emileigh Starbrook), with Julie (JulieRoyale Resident) second, and Moon (moonglownight 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:
Flapio (Flapio Resident) and Aymalie (Aymalie Resident) both finished tied with 13 points. Rule A8.1 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing 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
Flapio Resident 5 8
Aymalie Resident 6 7

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