The third North Sea Bandit IF Regatta of 2023 saw a fleet of seven Bandit IFs at the start.

During the start of the first race, Julie immediately took the lead. Followed by Moon, Red and Jack. During the course of the match, Julie distanced herself from Moon. He was closely followed by Red, Jack, and Siri. They would fight for second place.

We started the second race with six boats. Jack was at the start line too early and had to catch up behind. The other five skippers had a good start. Red in front, with Julie at her side and Moon, Siri and Rugger on the second line. Julie and Moon engaged in a fight. Red took advantage of this again. Siri and Rugger continued to follow Red. In Sloe Julie had caught up with Red, Siri followed the two skippers but broke down. Rugger and Moon had fallen a little behind. Jack had made it to the fleet, but failed here. Moon managed to connect with Julie and Red, but Rugger just couldn’t connect. At the Banana region, Julie was still in the lead and Moon and Red battled for second place. Rugger hadn’t given up hope yet and kept his distance. In the Melon region, Moon made a wrong decision that caused Julie to leave the fleet for good. Red and Rugger saw their chance and took over the second and third positions. With Red in second and Rugger in third, the cards seemed to be on the table. However, Red took a different line than Rugger and Moon in the last leg. This would see her finish fourth.

There was 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 second North Sea Bandit IF Regetta of 2023 saw a fleet of seven Bandit IFs at the start. Two of the Bandit IFs had crew on board.

During the start of the first race, Julie immediately took the lead. Followed by Moon and Red. Siri, Juicy and Jack came over the start a little later. Juicy crashed on the way to the first mark. Julie and Siri took a different line from the other sailors, which helped Julie build her lead and Siri connected with Red and Moon. These three skippers would compete for second place. Red got real bad luck and had to retire. Bad luck had left Jack even further behind.

We started the second race with five boats. The five skippers had a good start. Julie took the lead followed by Moon, Red and Siri. Jack broke down and lost valuable time. It looked like a close race, but Red kept battling Moon. At the Kiwi region, the trio had caught up with Julie. This caused Red to take the lead, but as she sailed too close to an island, Siri saw his chance to take over the lead for good. The trio behind him continued to fight for second place. Red turned out to have the best papers here.

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

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.

Committee boat: Daenerys.
Dock: Cryptic, Caethes, Vicky, and Cloe.

The first Bandit IF Regatta of 2023 saw a fleet of five Bandit IFs at the start. One of the Bandit IFs had crew on board. This year we are going to take a different tack and the skippers will have to face different wind directions. This makes a familiar route completely different again. All lines that one has learned in the past can be immediately thrown overboard. Why am I doing this? Not to tease the skippers but to keep them awake and that the races are far from boring. And with BOSS3+ boats you have many options to do this.

Back to the race because this is what we came for. As mentioned, five boats entered the battle. Rugger, Julie and Moon got off to a good start, Siri followed at a distance. And Riz had a late start but had to retire due to technical problems. Julie took the lead from Rugger at the first mark. Moon followed and Siri had connected with Moon. By the next mark, Julie had taken a lead. Moon, Siri and Rugger battled for second place. Moon won this one and Siri and Rugger battled for third place. On the way to the westernmost mark of the day, Rugger was forced to retire and the cards for the first race were shuffled.

We started the second race with four boats. The four skippers had a good start. Julie took the lead, followed by Rugger Moon and Siri. Approaching the first mark, Moon had taken over second. Siri and Rugger were in contention for third again. And this was going to be a long fight. Julie and Moon, meanwhile, had already distanced themselves from the two fighters. At the Easternmost mark, Siri had left Rugger behind him and was trying to connect with Moon and Julie. Which turned out to be quite a task. Nevertheless, he seemed to be getting closer to Moon. On the way to the Clementine Region, each skipper sought his own lines between the islands of Fruit. Julie and Moon appeared to have found the best lines here. They had distanced themselves from Siri and Rugger for good. However, the battle was over again.

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.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the first North Sea Bandit Regatta for 2023. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, The North Sea regions were well behaved as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Both DNFs, one a piece in each race, were from skippers crashing while crossing over region corners. The crowds that gathered at the lighthouses on 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 an energetic display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea CCW (counter-clockwise) and North Sea 108 courses, was made up of a majority of seven Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Today’s winner was Cilian (Cilian McCullough), with Moon (moonglownight Resident) second, and Zimtzicke (Nicole Myhre) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate and to the SLCG for helping with race duties.

Race Notes:
Riz (RIZLER Rodex) was disqualified (DSQ) during the first race due to sailing with an incorrect racewind, 135° instead of the 225° set by the race director.


Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) was disqualified (DSQ) during the second race for finising while failing to complete a 360° penalty turn as requested by a race director due to a Rule 18.2 Giving Mark Room foul.

18.2 Giving Mark-Room
(b) If boats are overlapped when the first of them reaches the zone, the outside boat at that moment shall
thereafter give the inside boat mark-room. If a boat is clear ahead when she reaches the zone,
the boat clear astern at that moment shall thereafter give her mark-room.

Emileigh (Emileigh Starbrook), Rugger (ruggeromare Resident), and Riz (RIZLER Rodex) all finished tied with 17 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
Emileigh Starbrook 7 10
ruggeromare Resident 8 9
RedHeadJO Resident 8 9

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Emileigh’s favor with having a seventh place finish over Rugger’s and Riz’s eighth place finishes as their best.

As Rugger and Riz both have the exact same finishes in both races, an eight point finish in the first race and a nine point finish 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 remaining tie. Therefore, Rugger and Riz remain tied in ninth place overall.

The last North Sea Bandit IF Regatta in 20221 took place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in December. We started with five bandit IFs. We had a great start and Julie took the lead right away. Julie was followed by Ryan, Red, Siri, and Rugger. Julie distanced herself from the other four skippers right from the start. At the first mark, the foursome was shuffled. Ryan had the best papers, but Siri and Red showed they were cut from the better cloth and took over second place. This dropped Ryan back to fourth place. But Rugger was still lurking. Julie, meanwhile, was far away. Siri and Red battled for second place. Both gave no inch of width. Rugger had caught up with Ryan, but the latter continued to fight as well. At mark 12 things went wrong for Rugger. He sailed the mark on the wrong side. Going into the second lap, Julie was still leading. Followed by Reed and Siri. Ryan had crashed and Rugger was in fourth, but he hadn’t realized the race had two rounds, so he retired after he had completed the first round. Meanwhile, Julie and Siri had crashed entering the Satsuma region. This put Red in charge. Both skippers were able to find their boat so they could sail out of the race.

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

1Note: The North Sea Bandit Regatta, North Sea Open Regatta, Cat Fight, and Bandit IF Regatta are postponed until the new year. The North Sea will be taking a holiday break over the Christmas and New Years weeks. Full races in The North Sea will resume on Monday, January 2nd, 2023. From everyone at North Sea Racing, we wish you a safe and happy holidays.

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 calm and generally well behaved as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, recorded during the first race, was from a skipper pulling her boat after she collided with the race committee boat. The second DNF, also recorded during the first race, was from 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, enjoyed a festive display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Copacabana and North Sea Copacabana Reverse courses, was made up of a majority of five Bandit 22 LTEs. Two Bandit IFs rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

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
emiliopc7 Resident 6 4
ruggeromare Resident 4 6

In the last race, Emilio breaks the tie with Rugger with his fourth place finish over Rugger’s sixth place finish.
