Today was the third Bandit IF Regatta in 2022. We had seven Bandit IFs on the start, one of them had crew on board. In the first race we would have two dropouts. One skipper lost his way and the other crashed. The first race was decided halfway through the race. In the second race, two fleets of three boats arose. The first three skippers would keep the race exciting until the end.
There were two DNFs (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Today’s winners on the Bandit IF were Julie (JulieRoyale Resident), with Moon (Moonglownight Resident) second, and Siri (Sirius Rosca) in third place.
Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.
Juicy (juice651 Resident) and Alex (Alex0730 Resident) both finished tied with 10 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|
With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Juicy’s favor with having a fourth place finish over Alex’s fifth place finish as his best.
