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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The start of the first race did not go smoothly. Zero had to drop out before the start. So we were left with six boats. Dunia crashed in the Satsuma region. The other five skippers would decide who would win the first race. On the way to the Annato region, the fleet was scattered. Each followed its own line between the islands. Who had made the right choice? Fanny was the first to round the mark, an island in the Annato region. Shortly followed by Rugger and Siri. Moon followed in fourth position, but he would have to pull out all the stops to overtake the leaders. Emi followed at a good distance from Moon. On the way to the Ziziphus region, Rugger and Siri battled for second place. Fanny slowly got ahead of the two fighters.

The second race again started with seven Bandit IFs, but Dunia had made way for Red. Immediately after the start, a group of five (Fanny, Moon, Rugger, Siri, Zero) and a group of two (Emi and Red) Bandit IFs emerged. Moon and Fanny immediately took the lead, taking the lead over Siri, Zero and Rugger at the first mark. Rugger dropped out with problems. The two front runners were slow to finish and Siri and Zero would have to settle for third. But the venom was in his tail again.
