This weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta took place on another beautiful Saturday afternoon in September. We started with five Bandit IFs. One of the Bandit IFs had crew on board.

In the first race, Julie already took a lead on the other skippers at the start. On the way to the first mark, a skipper, Zero, had to give up with technical problems. Arriving at the first mark we had two leaders, Julie and Siri, with Angela. Rugger and Darb had lagged behind. At the turning point, Darb also had to give up.

At the start of the second race, Rugger took the lead, followed immediately by Siri and Julie. Jack, who had joined the group, followed fourth. On the way to the second mark, Rugger hit the rocks and had to let Siri and Julie go. He found a connection with Jack. However, in the course of the race, problems also caused him to retire. This would leave Julie and Siri battling it out for first place and Rugger was in third place. Darb followed at a distance from Rugger.

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

Race Notes:

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
Sirius Rosca 2 1

In the last race, Siri breaks the tie with Julie with his first place finish over Julie’s second place finish.
