A beautiful Saturday afternoon was the backdrop for the first North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for November, 2022. We started with 5 Bandit IFs. The fleet set out together for the first mark. There, Moon took the lead, followed by Rugger, Siri, Red and Jack. At the second mark, Moon sailed away from the pursuers and Red ran out of luck. The chasing trio didn’t give each other an inch. The battle for second place would be fought until the turning point.
Before the start of the second race, a skipper joined the fleet.
Five of the six skippers had a good start. At the first mark Moon showed again and took a lead not to relinquish it. In the background there was another fight for second place. This one was battled by Siri, Max, Rugger and Red. The latter unfortunately had to give up again due to bad luck. Rugger held out for a very long time, but in the final leg he had to let Siri and Max go first.
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.

Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.
Max (Max Starostin) and Jack (Jacquimo Resident) both finished tied with 9 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 Max’s favor with having a third place finish over Jack’s fourth place finish as his best.
