Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. 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 generally well behaved as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, recorded during the second race, was due to a skipper pulling his boat after realizing he had an incorrect course loaded in his navigation HUD. The second DNF, also recorded during the second race, was from a skipper crashing as she crossed over region corners. The final DNF, occurring during the second race, was from a skipper pulling her boat after her boat’s HUD ceased to function. The crowds that gathered on the beaches 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 enlivened display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Olympic Short Mirror course and a two lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop Mirror course, was made up of a majority of ten Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, one crewed and two single-handed respectively, rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.
