Another beautiful Saturday afternoon in August was the scene for this weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta. We started with seven Bandit IFs. Two of the seven bandit IFs had crew on board.

At the start of the first race, three skippers immediately took a slight lead. By the second mark the leading group had fallen apart. The four skippers who stayed behind had connected with the skipper who sailed in third place. However, by the end of the next mark, he took over the second place. During the remainder of the race, the fleet broke in two again and the first three skippers took a big lead over the rest. This lead was never relinquished. Sadly, after this race, a skipper had to cancel the following races due to bad luck.

In the second race we left with seven Bandit IFs. The skippers soon chose their own path to the first mark. And there it turned out that the fleet was still close together. Two groups of three skippers were formed, but the distance between the two groups remained small. The skippers in the groups turned out to be evenly matched. This made it an exciting race. Things got even more exciting when the second group caught up with the first group. Now we had the whole fleet of six boats together again. One skipper had to let the other five go, and in the Guanabana region channel, we had four leaders who did not yield an inch to the other skippers. At the last mark a skipper got stuck in a sandbank and another skipper had to let the other two skippers go.

And there was still a final race to go and a new skipper came forward, so we were again with seven boats.
At the start of the third race, one skipper started on port and the other on starboard tack, the first skipper calculated this correctly and immediately took the lead. The fleet had to set sail to catch up with the first skipper. At the first mark they had done that, a fleet of six boats, the seventh boat had fallen a bit behind, they were heading for the turning point. However, this match would go smoothly again.

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

This weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta took place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in the winter. This time we had a fleet of eight Bandit IF’s at the start. Two of the eight Bandit IFs had crews. The North Sea and Fruit regions behaved well and there was not a cloud in the sky.

We had a great start and the fleet stayed close from the start. As a result, we would have a compact fleet until halfway through the first race. Halfway through the race a skipper had steering problems but he recovered, but had lost a number of places as a result.

In the second race, a pack of five boats led the fleet. The other three boats were sailed at a distance. The race was partly between the Isles of Fruit. The five skippers stayed together until the finish and they changed positions regularly.

In the third and final race of the day, two skippers took the lead, followed by five other skippers. The last skipper had to give up due to technical problems

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.

Saturday graced us with a beautiful fall afternoon. This time we had a fleet of nine Bandit IFs at the start, one of the nine Bandit IFs had crew. The North Sea and Fruit regions behaved very well.

In both races mutual fights arose. In the first race, three skippers quickly left the fleet. The winner of the first race would fall from this leading group. Behind the leading group, the chasing group stayed close to each other until the end. In the second race we already had a dropout in the first lap. In the second lap of the second race, we would have another fallout, which thinned out the battlefield.

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

This Saturday afternoon, we had a fleet of nine Bandit IFs at the start, two with crew.
The North Sea regions behaved well and even in the Fruit waters there was not a cloud in the sky.

The first race had a surprising start. And right after the start everyone made their way to the first buoy. Once there, we had the front runners with a group of six pursuers. The battle turned out not to be over yet, as the two front runners were overtaken and two skippers would settle the race at the finish.

The start of the second race was just as beautiful as the first race. Three Bandits IF brooding side by side across the starting line. At the first mark we already had two leaders who would fight for the first place to the end. The fleet would slowly pull out, but in the second round, three other boats would fight each other.

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

Saturday afternoon was beautiful, with good sailing weather and no thunderstorms to be seen.
This time we had eight Bandit IFs, including two with crew.

We had a great start again. Immediately after the start, one of the sailors took a different route to the first buoy and the other seven sailors stayed together as a group. Not long after, two other sailors decided to follow one boat. The fleet slowly began to stretch, creating a small group of three boats. The other five boats followed a short distance away.

The second race also had a good start and there was already a group of five boats with two boats that immediately took the lead. However, one of the two leaders took the lead and two of the followers followed the other boat to pass the first mark together with the three of them. Behind that, three boats continued to track remotely. However, when the finish line passed, five boats had reunited, however one of the boats had fallen far behind. The group of five boats slowly began to stretch again.

We had three DNFs (Did Not Finish) through both races, however it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Saturday afternoon, it was a beautiful day for sailing. This time we had eleven Bandit IFs, including three with crew.
The North Sea regions behaved reasonably well. We had a nice start with a surprising start of a sailor that went almost flawlessly. A number of sailors were too high on the starting line, so they had to tack again to start. After the start, the head of the fleet stayed together for a long time, making it exciting until the end.

The second race started with a nice start and two sailors managed to separate themselves from the fleet quite quickly. However, a group of six to seven boats stayed together for a long time, which kept the race exciting until the end

We had two DSQs (Disqualified) and six DNFs (Did Not Finish) through both races, however it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Saturday afternoon. It was a beautiful day for sailing. This time we had seven Bandit IFs, including three with crew.
The North Sea regions behaved very well. The first race went smoothly and the fleet stayed together for a long time. Several mutual fights started, which kept the race exciting. At the end of the first race, a number of skippers crashed, so we had two DNFs (Did Not Finish).

For the second race, a crewed IF joined the fleet. In the second race, so many errors (fouls) were made by several skippers from the start to the first mark, that before the end of the first lap, the RD decided to do the start all over again.

After the restart, the race went much better and sportier. One of the skippers took the lead from the start and was chased by a group of four boats, who fought each other out for the rest of the race, who would be second, however we lost a skipper in battle, making us have one DNF.
Due to the restart in the second race, DSQs (Disqualified) were nullified and it was another successful and sporty day in The North Sea.

Bandit IF Races – February 22nd 2020

From the left to right: (in Bandit IFs): boats: Siri, Jack, Emi & Sasha, Rugger & Tamar, Julie, Justin, Ultra, Max & Wyndi
Committee Boat: Daenerys

Saturday afternoon. It was a beautiful day for sailing. This time we had eight Bandit IFs, including three with crew.
The North Sea regions behaved well.
The start of both races went flawlessly, although the urge was blown at the commission boat.
In the first race the fleet quickly fell apart. In the second race the fleet stayed together for a long time with two 360° penalty turns distributed in total.
We did not have any DNFs (Did Not Finish) or DSQs (Disqualified), and it was another successful and sporting day in The North Sea.

Today’s winner was Julie (JulieRoyale Resident), with Justin (SteveLL Resident)  second, and Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Justin (SteveLL Resident), Rugger (Ruggeromare Resident), Ultra (Ultramantra Resident) and Siri (Sirius Rosca) finished tied with 7 points. Rule A8.1 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the 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
SteveLL Resident 1 6
Ruggeromare Resident 2 5
Ultramantra Resident 2 5
Sirius Rosca 3 4

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Justin’s favor with having a first place finish over Ruggers and Ultramantra’s second place finish and Siri’s third place as their best. Subsequently, as Rugger and Ultra both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing is used to further break their remaining 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
Ruggeromare Resident 5 2
Ultramantra Resident 2 5

In the last race, Rugger breaks the tie with Ultra, with his second place finish over Ultra’s fifth place finish.
