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 for October, 2022, took place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. We started with 5 bandit IFs. I had again instructed the skippers to make a route and sail on the basis of a list of landmarks. This didn’t go well, because everyone was sailing in a different direction. As a result, the first route is not included in the final result of the day. Nevertheless, it was educational and fun to see the skippers sail with their own USB, without a USB card provided, or manually with the help of the world map.

One skipper had to leave the field before the start of the second race, but two other skippers joined the fleet. We had a good start and Julie took the lead right away. Followed by Rugger, Moon and Siri. Moon immediately gave chase to Rugger who had to recognize Moon as superior at the end of the match. Siri also made it difficult for Rugger in the last meters. But it just held up as we approached the finish line. The result of the second match is the only one that counts towards the final result of the day.

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.

Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Another beautiful Saturday afternoon in October was the backdrop for this weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta. We started with nine Bandit IFs. One of the Bandit IFs had crew on board.

The first race got off to a good start. Eight of the nine boats departed simultaneously. One boat stayed slightly behind, but the race was still young. During the first leg, three skippers (Dunia, Moon, Siri) took a different route to the first mark. The others followed their way south. Julie was the first to round the mark, followed shortly by Jack, Moon, Rugger and Siri. The fleet was already spreading out over the North Sea. Julie got ahead of her pursuers. The first group consisted of Moon, Jack and Siri. Then Red and Rugger followed, the latter had to stop the race in the second half.

At the start of the second race, the entire fleet rushed to the start. This ended well, so that again a nice start took place. The road to the first mark was short, and Julie took the lead again. Shortly followed by Moon, Siri and Red. Behind that we had a group of three, namely Jack, Rugger and Emi. Jack tried to connect with Red and Siri. Who, on their own, gave chase to Moon. Julie, meanwhile, had run away from the fleet again. In this order they would end the day.

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.

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, building 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 was due to skipper pulling his boat, during the first race, after getting lost on the first leg. The crowds that gathered along 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, enjoyed a great display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta and North Sea 108 courses, was made up of a majority of four Bandit 22 LTEs. Two Bandit IFs rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.
