Great sim sailing weather, 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 well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF, occurring during the first race, was from a skipper sailing to the race dock instead of the finish line, claiming he missed a mark, although he did race a correct course as witnessed by race staff. The crowds that gathered on the beaches of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, reveled in a competitive display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea SS-01 and North Sea 107 courses, was made up of a split majority of four Bandit 22 LTEs, and four Bandit IFs, three sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively. One Bandit 25R rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The North Sea regions were generally well behaved, as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Two of those DNFs were due to skippers crashing while crossing over region corners. The remaining DNF was from a skipper pulling her boat in the second race after frustration from getting lost on the course. 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, cheered on an electric display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta Reverse and North Sea Bowline Reverse courses, was made up of a majority of nine Bandit 22 LTEs. One Bandit 25, and one Bandit 50/3 rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

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

Therefore, both Moon and Ester receive 6.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 6 and 7, added together and divided equally.

Calm seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as four DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Two of those DNFs, occurring during the first race, were from skippers pulling their boats. The remaining two DNFs, occurring during the second race, were from a skipper’s connection dying on her, and crash to desktop in the middle of a region for another skipper. 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, cheered on a thrilling display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea SS-01 and North Sea Trapezoid courses, was made up of a majority of nine Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, two sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, and two Bandit 25Rs rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.
