This weeks North Sea Triple Threat took place on another beautiful Thursday afternoon in March, with good sailing weather coming from the southwest. Today we had five Bandit 22 LTEs, three Bandit IFs, and three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class at the starting line. A Star Class had crew on board
Today, we had two great races. Because the 22s started last, we got a completely different picture because the fleets were overtaking each other.
There were three DNFs (Did Not Finish) and one DSQ (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.
Race Director: Daenerys
Assistant Race Directors: Tamaruska, and Cryptic

Today’s winners on the Bandit IF were Jack (Jacquimo Resident), with Aymalie (Aymalie Resident) second, and Angus (Angus Finlayson) in third place.
Today’s winners on the TMS Star Class were Julie (JulieRoyale), with Emi (Emileigh Starbrook) second, and Max (Maximiliano Szondi) in third place.
Today’s winners on the Bandit 22 LTE were Ester (citacg Resident), with Nicole (Nicole Myhre) second, and Moon (Moonglownight Resident) in third place.
Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.
Max (Maximiliano Szondi) was disqualified (DSQ) during the second race for sailing an incorrect course, missing the second course mark, the blue buoy in the Sapote region.
Nicole (Nicole Myhre) and Moon (moonglownight Resident) both finished tied with 5 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 Nicole’s favor with having a first place finish over Moon’s second place finish as his best.
