Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. With a moderate breeze of 15 knots out of the southwest, rising to a fresh breeze of 18 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were behaved for most as four DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. All four DNFs, split evenly with two in the first and second race, were due to skippers crashing while crossing over region corners. The crowds that gathered on the shores of the island in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, thrilled in a lively display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Bowline and North Sea Bowline Reverse courses, was made up of a majority of six Bandit 22 LTEs. Five Bandit IFs, four sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, and One Bandit 25R rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Race Notes:
Zimtzicke (Nicole Myhre) and Markis (Marcus Schechter) both finished the first race tied at the finishing line with a time of 22:19.

Boats tied for a race prize shall share it or be given equal prizes.

Therefore, both Zimtzicke and Markis receive 10.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 10 and 11, added together and divided equally.

Race Notes:
Sandra (WWWAAAA Resident) and Sea (filax Carter) both finished tied with 18 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
WWWAAAA Resident 7 11
filax Carter 8 10

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Sandra’s favor with having a seventh place finish over Sea’s eighth place finish as her best.


Markis (Marcus Schechter) and Sirius (Sirius Rosca) finished tied with 20 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
Marcus Schechter 11 9
Sirius Rosca 9 11

In the last race, Markis breaks the tie with Sirius with his ninth place finish over Sirius’s eleventh place finish.


Cole (ColeBatriani Resident) and Max (Maximiliano Szondi) finished tied with 26 points. As they both have duplicate finishes in each race, a DNF (Did Not Finish) in the first race and DNS (Did Not Start) in the second race respectively, neither Rule A8.1 or A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking their tie. Therefore, Cole and Max remain tied in thirteenth place overall.

Calm seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. With a moderate breeze of 11 knots out of the southwest, rising to 15 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, recorded during the first lap of the second race, was due to a skipper crashing while crossing over region corners. 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, delighted in a dynamic display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Short) and a two lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop course, was made up of a majority of nine Bandit 22 LTEs. Four Bandit IFs, one Bandit 25 R, and one Bandit 60 rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.
