Rocky sailing sim weather featured during this weeks Backwater Bay Yacht Club Cat Fight. The regions in the Bingo Strait were foul tempered as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day, all during the first race as both Palani and Moon succumbed to the Bingo Strait’s hunger. After the foiling feline sacrifice in the first race, the seas calmed down to allow all boats in the second race to finish. This weeks fleet, racing on the BBYC 05 and BBYC 04 Rev 1 courses, was comprised of a majority of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows. One lone TMS Nacra 17 made up the remainder of the fleet.

Today’s winner was Julnara (Julnara Resident), with Moon (moonglownight Resident) and Palani (Palani Allen) tied in second, and Daenerys (blondij Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.
Moon (moonglownight Resident) and Palani (Palani Allen) both finished tied with 5 points. As they have identical finishes in each race, a DNF (Did Not Finish) in the first race and a DNS (Did Not Start) in the second race respectively, neither Rule A8.1 nor Rule A8.2 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking this tie, therefore they both remained tied in second place overall.
