A beautiful Saturday afternoon saw the last North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for September, 2022. We started with six Bandit IFs.

During the first race, the fleet remained together until the first buoy. Siri got into an argument with Mark, which left him behind. At the turning point, Moon seemed to be in the lead, but Julie cleverly sailed past them, but disaster struck soon after, forcing her to give up. Moon followed by Jack, Red, and Rugger sailed for the next landmark, the Island of Ziziphus. En route to the finish line there would be fights between Red and Jack, and between Siri, Jack and Rugger.

During the second race, the fleet remained together again. However, this time disaster struck for Red. Julie took the lead and Moon followed in her wake. Both were followed by Jack. Rugger and Siri would compete for last place. And this would be a fierce battle! At the head, nothing would change until the finish.

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.

Race Notes:
Red (RedHeadJO Resident), Jack (Jacquimo Resident), Siri (Sirius Rosca), and Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) all finished tied with 8 points. Rule A8.1 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to break this tie:

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Red’s favor with having a second place finish over Jack’s and Siri’s third place, and Rugger’s fourth place finishes as their best.

As Jack and Siri both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to further 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.

Another beautiful Saturday afternoon in September was the backdrop for this weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta. We started with four Bandit IFs.

In the first race, Julie already took a lead on the other skippers at the start. Moon and Rugger followed close behind. On the way to mark 4, Julie took the wrong line, causing Moon to take the lead. Julie didn’t give up yet and would battle Moon until the very end. Darb had bad luck at mark 4 and had to give up.

At the start of the second race we were with three boats. The skippers crossed the starting line almost simultaneously. Julie and Moon had better speed and immediately took the lead. Rugger had to watch as his fellow fighters sailed away from him. At the second mark, Moon took the lead, but Julie continued to follow closely. Each looking for the best line, they continue the fight for first place.

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.

Race Notes:
Julie (JulieRoyale Resident) and Moon (moonglownight Resident) both finished the first race tied at the finishing line with a time of 18:47. 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 Julie and Moon receive 1.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 1 and 2, added together and divided equally.

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.

Midway through the race, Moon had caught up with Max, and Siri and Zero were following at close range.

A beautiful Saturday afternoon in August saw the last North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for August, 2022. We started with six Bandit IFs.

At the start of the first race, we had a strange duck in the fleet. It was not Donald duck but a Bandit 25. The skipper knew he was not allowed to participate. The Bandit IF fleet set out for the first route. This was a puzzle1 route. Heading into the first mark, Julie and Moon took the lead and were followed by Max, Siri and Zero. Rugger lagged behind. This is how the order remained until the last leg. Here, Moon started the sprint but he still had to let Julie go ahead on the line.

The second race was a newly created course and the same as the first route, but in reverse. On the way to the first mark, the fleet split up. Julie and Zero turned west. While the men, Rugger, Moon, Max and Siri continued to sail south. Moon returned first, followed by Julie and Zero. During the race, Moon would slowly run out. Julie and Zero would battle for second place. Siri and Max followed this battle from a distance.

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.

1A puzzle route is a course were skippers are given a map of numbered buoys in the race notice. During the skippers meeting for the race, the skippers are then given a sequence of numbers that represent the order and form of the course to be sailed.

This weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta took place on a beautiful mid-August Saturday afternoon. We started with seven Bandit IFs. One of the seven Bandit IFs had crew on board. At the start of the first race, the entire fleet sailed towards the first mark. There, Rugger, Zero, and Julie pushed to be the first to round this one. They were followed shortly by Moon. Then Darb, Siri and Jack followed. In that order, they sailed toward the third and fourth marks. Here Moon had bad luck and Siri connected with Julie, Zero and Rugger. Jack hooked up at the end of the race too, but then Julie had taken a slight lead over Zero and Rugger.

In the second race, a new skipper reported and we started with eight Bandit IFs. A group of five skippers, including Moon, Jack, Rugger, Julie and Zero, had a slight lead as we approached the canal in the Guanabana region. The passage was tight. En route to the North Sea, Rugger had taken the lead and was being chased by Zero, Julie, Moon and Siri. Just before Sloe, Rugger was caught up by his pursuers. Here Julie and Moon took the lead. Julie distanced himself from moon and the foursome behind Julie would compete for second to fifth place. 10 meters before the finish, disaster struck for Rugger. He crashed on a corner and his ship went in circles. In the end he finished seventh.

With one race to go, Julie could take it easy, but she didn’t. At the start she took the lead and Rugger tried a different tack and started from port. Arriving at the first mark, Julie was still in the lead and was chased by Moon, Siri and Max. Rugger followed in fifth. On the way to the Nectarine region, Max was overtaken by Rugger and Zero. Jack stayed a bit behind. At the statues of Eden, Max caught up with Rugger again. On the finish line Jack and Rugger made it exciting for sixth place

There was one DNF (Did Not Finish) and no DSQs (Disqualified) through all the races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Another beautiful Saturday afternoon in August was the scene for this weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta. We started with seven Bandit IFs. Two of the seven bandit IFs had crew on board.

At the start of the first race, three skippers immediately took a slight lead. By the second mark the leading group had fallen apart. The four skippers who stayed behind had connected with the skipper who sailed in third place. However, by the end of the next mark, he took over the second place. During the remainder of the race, the fleet broke in two again and the first three skippers took a big lead over the rest. This lead was never relinquished. Sadly, after this race, a skipper had to cancel the following races due to bad luck.

In the second race we left with seven Bandit IFs. The skippers soon chose their own path to the first mark. And there it turned out that the fleet was still close together. Two groups of three skippers were formed, but the distance between the two groups remained small. The skippers in the groups turned out to be evenly matched. This made it an exciting race. Things got even more exciting when the second group caught up with the first group. Now we had the whole fleet of six boats together again. One skipper had to let the other five go, and in the Guanabana region channel, we had four leaders who did not yield an inch to the other skippers. At the last mark a skipper got stuck in a sandbank and another skipper had to let the other two skippers go.

And there was still a final race to go and a new skipper came forward, so we were again with seven boats.
At the start of the third race, one skipper started on port and the other on starboard tack, the first skipper calculated this correctly and immediately took the lead. The fleet had to set sail to catch up with the first skipper. At the first mark they had done that, a fleet of six boats, the seventh boat had fallen a bit behind, they were heading for the turning point. However, this match would go smoothly again.

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

A beautiful Saturday afternoon was the scene for the first North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for August 2022. We started with eight Bandit IFs. Four of the eight bandit IFs had crew on board.

Immediately after the start, the fleet split up. Five boats turned west while the other boats continued south.
At the first mark the ships came together again, but by then a leading group of four, Red, Moon, Siri, Rugger, boats had already formed. This group stayed together until the penultimate mark. Here Siri and Moon distanced themselves from their companions. They would fight for first place. A boat should have stopped the race but another skipper joined the party.

In the second race, we left with eight Bandit IFs. Immediately after the start, a skipper split off from the fleet to join the fleet at the first mark. En route to the statues of Eden, the fleet seemed to be falling apart, but during the battle for second and third place, the three skippers left behind had a chance to rejoin the leading group. However, the front runner saw an opportunity to escape the violence that took place behind him. En route to the southernmost part of the route, the group split in two again. At the turning point it was already clear who would come second.

The third race would be decisive for the result. The fleet moved together towards the first mark. The fleet was still together when they passed the first mark. At the turning point, the cards would be shuffled for the final battle to the finish.

There were one DNF (Did Not Finish) and one DSQ (Disqualified) through both races and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

The last North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for July, 2022, took place on another beautiful Saturday afternoon. We started with six Bandit IFs. A compact fleet of five Bandit Ifs sailed to the first turning point. Here two skippers took a slight lead over the fleet. On the way to the west, a third skipper joined the leaders. One of the front runners sailed away from his companions and the remaining two skippers competed for second place.

The second race we left with six Bandit IFs. On the way to the first mark a skipper broke down and had to let the fleet go. The remaining skippers slowly dispersed between the islands of Fruit. At the turning point in the south, the entire fleet scattered and we were left with lone skippers. However, there was still a fight in the tail for fifth place. In the last leg, two skippers came close to each other and competed for third place. This battle would last until the finish line.

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

This weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta saw another beautiful Saturday afternoon in July. We started with seven Bandit IFs. A compact fleet of seven Bandit IFs sailed to the first turning point. Here a skipper took a slight lead over the fleet. Two followers tried to overtake the leader, but that turned out to be an impossible task. The other four skippers stuck together faithfully. Here and there positions changeded. A skipper did have to give up halfway.

The second race we left with six Bandit IFs. The fleet remained fairly close to each other until the first mark. A skipper then took charge. Two other skippers tried to break free from the fleet and gave chase for the leader. By the end of the race there was a head group of three skippers. They would decide who would win at the finish line.

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.
