Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the Halloween edition of the North Sea Bandit Regatta. With a moderate breeze of 15 knots out of the southwest, rising to a fresh breeze of 18 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were well behaved as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Both DNFs, occurring during the first race, were due to skippers crashing while crossing over region corners. The crowds that gathered on the lighthouse observation deck of the island in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, enjoyed a spirited display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Bowline and North Sea Bowline Reverse courses, was made up of a majority of five Bandit IFs. Two Bandit 22 LTEs, and one Bandit 25 R rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet in the first race. For the second race, One Bandit 22 skipper opted for his Bandit IF, another Bandit IF skipper picked up crew, and a late arrival added a Bandit 22 to the fleet.

The last North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for October, 2022, took place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. We started with 5 bandit IFs. I had again instructed the skippers to make a route and sail on the basis of a list of landmarks. This didn’t go well, because everyone was sailing in a different direction. As a result, the first route is not included in the final result of the day. Nevertheless, it was educational and fun to see the skippers sail with their own USB, without a USB card provided, or manually with the help of the world map.

One skipper had to leave the field before the start of the second race, but two other skippers joined the fleet. We had a good start and Julie took the lead right away. Followed by Rugger, Moon and Siri. Moon immediately gave chase to Rugger who had to recognize Moon as superior at the end of the match. Siri also made it difficult for Rugger in the last meters. But it just held up as we approached the finish line. The result of the second match is the only one that counts towards the final result of the day.

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.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the last Cat Fight in The North Sea of October, 2022. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, rising to 21 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF, occurring during the first race, was due to a boat being removed after the first mark. The crowds that gathered along the shores of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, delighted in the stirring fleet-foiled feline fury on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Copacabana Reverse and North Sea Torpedo courses, was made up of five The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, four sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively during the first race. As the wind picked up for the second race, a single-handed skipper opted to pick up crew for her Flying Shadow.

With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as four DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Three of the four DNFs, were due to skippers crashing as they crossed over region corners. The remaining DNF was due to a skipper pulling her boar immediately after the start of the small boat portion.

A beautiful Saturday afternoon in October. We started with nine Bandit IFs. One of the Bandit IFs had crew on board. One of the skippers missed the start line, another skipper had a very late start. This would then make the first race between seven skippers.

The first race got off to a good start. Seven Bandit IFs entered the fray and Red immediately took the lead. Dunia separated from the fleet to sail on another line to the first buoy. The first tack went almost flawlessly. Red turned first at the buoy. Followed by Siri, Julie was too high on the mark and dropped to fifth, but she immediately gave chase. By the second mark she was already fourth. Siri and Rugger were ahead of her, and Red was already ahead of the fleet. By the fourth mark, Julie was in third position. At the penultimate mark, Emi got unlucky and had to drop out.

At the start of the second race, the RC was pressed for time. Almost the entire fleet rushed to the start. Rugger took the lead, but Julie and Red had a better line to the first mark. Julie turned first, immediately followed by Red, Rugger. Jack had sailed a little too long and lost contact with Julie. Julie returned first at the second mark, followed by Red, Rugger, Emi, Jack, Dunia and Siri. Julie saved her lead over the fleet. And Rugger hooked up with Red. Shortly followed by Emi and Dunia. Jack and Siri were in a close fight. Red wriggled free from Rugger. On the way to the penultimate mark, disaster struck. Four skippers had bad luck (crash) and had to give up.

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

The North Sea regions were stormy during the first race but calmed down for the second race as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. All three DNFs, recorded during the first race, occurred when three skippers ran into a storm surge entering the Ziziphus region. The crowds that gathered on the shores of 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 competitive display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Long) and the North Sea 107 course, was made up of a majority of six Bandit 22 LTEs. Two Bandit IFs rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

A beautiful Saturday afternoon in October was again the scene for this weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta. We started with seven Bandit IFs. One of the Bandit IFs had crew on board.

The first race got off to a good start. Six of the seven boats started over starboard and one over port. The whole fleet, except Julie, followed the boat that started from port. Red took the lead, followed by Moon, Rugger and Siri. At the first mark, Julie moved in between Red and Moon. When rounding the next mark, Moon and Julie had switched places. Rugger and Siri followed at an appropriate distance. History repeated itself at the last mark.

Between the races, a skipper joined the fleet. She had missed the first race due to computer issues. At the start of the second race, the RC was pressed for time. The entire fleet rushed to the start. This ended well, so that again a nice start took place. On the way to the first mark, Red took the lead, followed by Julie, Moon and Siri. Unfortunately, Rugger crashed while crossing over region corners. Arriving in Genip, we had a fierce battle between Julie and Moon, fighting neck and neck until the next mark. Siri followed a short distance from the fight. Going into the final leg, Red, Julie and Moon lay side by side and it would be a fierce battle all the way to the finish line

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.
