Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the first North Sea Bandit Regatta of October, 2022. With a gentle breeze of 8 knots out of the southwest, building to a moderate breeze of 11 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF was from a skipper pulling his boat during the second race after realizing he was late for an appointment. The crowds that gathered on the lighthouse observation deck 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, were thrilled by an electric display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Olympic Short Mirror course and a 2 lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop Mirror course, was made up of a majority of five Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, two sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, and one Bandit 25 R rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Race Notes:
Sirius (Sirius Rosca) and Red (RedHeadJO Resident) both finished the second race tied at the finishing line with a time of 18:06. As their final time also remains tied, as they both sailed the same boat, Rule A7 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to score this tie:

If boats are tied at the finishing line or if a handicap or rating system is used and boats have equal corrected times, the points for the place for which the boats have tied and for the place(s) immediately below shall be added together and divided equally. Boats tied for a race prize shall share it or be given equal prizes.

Therefore, both Sirius and Red receive 2.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 2 and 3, added together and divided equally.


Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) and Max (Maximiliano Szondi) finished tied with 13 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
ruggeromare Resident 8 5
Maximiliano Szondi 5 8

In the last race, Rugger breaks the tie with Max with his fifth place finish over Max’s eighth place finish.
