The last North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for July, 2022, took place on another beautiful Saturday afternoon. We started with six Bandit IFs. A compact fleet of five Bandit Ifs sailed to the first turning point. Here two skippers took a slight lead over the fleet. On the way to the west, a third skipper joined the leaders. One of the front runners sailed away from his companions and the remaining two skippers competed for second place.

The second race we left with six Bandit IFs. On the way to the first mark a skipper broke down and had to let the fleet go. The remaining skippers slowly dispersed between the islands of Fruit. At the turning point in the south, the entire fleet scattered and we were left with lone skippers. However, there was still a fight in the tail for fifth place. In the last leg, two skippers came close to each other and competed for third place. This battle would last until the finish line.

There were no DNFs (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the last North Sea Open Regatta for July, 2022. The North Sea regions were well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF was attributed to a new-to-racing sailor pulling their boat during the small boat portion after frustration from sailing with a locked race wind for the first time. The crowds that gathered on the beaches of the island in the Ziziphus region, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, delighted in an electric display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Triple Pink course, was made up of a majority of six Bandit 22 LTEs. One crewed The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class rounded out this weeks small boat fleet.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, occurring during the first race, was due to a skipper crashing to their desktop in the middle of the Nance region. The remaining two DNFs, occurring during the second race, were due to skippers crashing while sailing over region corners. The crowds that gathered along the beaches on the island in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, reveled in a thrilling display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta saw another beautiful Saturday afternoon in July. We started with seven Bandit IFs. A compact fleet of seven Bandit IFs sailed to the first turning point. Here a skipper took a slight lead over the fleet. Two followers tried to overtake the leader, but that turned out to be an impossible task. The other four skippers stuck together faithfully. Here and there positions changeded. A skipper did have to give up halfway.

The second race we left with six Bandit IFs. The fleet remained fairly close to each other until the first mark. A skipper then took charge. Two other skippers tried to break free from the fleet and gave chase for the leader. By the end of the race there was a head group of three skippers. They would decide who would win at the finish line.

There was one DNF (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Another beautiful Saturday afternoon in July was the scene for this weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta. We started with seven Bandit IFs. One of the Bandit IFs has crew on board. A skipper took a lead on four pursuers. This was short-lived as he was having problems. This left him behind. The other four skippers would decide who would win the first race.

In the second race, all six boats left one after the other. But we would have a fight for first and third place. a skipper had bad luck on the way, so we had a surprising winner today.

There was one DNF (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 were Siri (Sirius Rosca), with Moon (Moonglownight Resident) second, and Zero (Sleet Zero) in third place.

Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Moon (moonglownight Resident) and Zero (Sleet Zero) finished tied with 6 points. As they both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to break this tie:

If a tie still remains between two or more boats, they shall be ranked in order of their scores in the last race. Any remaining ties shall be broken by using the tied boats’ scores in the next-to-last race and so on until all ties are broken. These scores shall be used even if some of them are excluded scores.

Skipper Race 1 Race 2
moonglownight Resident 4 2
Sleet Zero 2 4

In the last race, Moon breaks the tie with Zero with his second place finish over Zero’s fourth place finish.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. The North Sea regions were well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF was attributed to a skipper having to leave during the second race for plans with her family. The crowds that gathered on the beaches on the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on the feverish fleet-foiled feline flurry on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Bowline and North Sea Torpedo courses, was made up of six The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows in the first race, five sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively. One skipper opted for their WildWind AC-62, and another for their TMS Nacra 17 for the second race.

Today’s winner was Moon (moonglownight Resident), with Daenerys (blondij Resident) second, and Max (Max Starostin) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Moon (moonglownight Resident) and Daenerys (blondij Resident) both finished tied with 4 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
moonglownight Resident 1 3
blondij Resident 2 2

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Moon’s favor with having a first place finish over Daenerys’s second place finish as her best.
