The first North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for September, 2022, took place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. We started with five Bandit IFs.
In the first race, the fleet stayed close together. One of the skippers, Julie, had a breakdown and had to join the rear. Moon and Siri were going to compete for first place, but Zero held back and finished second behind Moon. Midway through the race, Moon had caught up with Max, and Siri and Zero were following at close range.
At the start of the second race, Julie had a flying start. However, she was closely followed by Max. Moon, Siri and Zero followed at a distance. Julie, still the first to be chased by Moon. Siri and Zero had now also caught up with Max. This created a group in the rear. These were going to compete for third place
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.

Siri (Sirius Rosca) and Max (Max Starostin) both finished tied with 8 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 Siri’s favor with having a third place finish over Max’s fourth place finish as his best.
