Calm seas, with a great 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 two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, occurring during the first race, was from a skipper pulling his boat towards the end of the race when his crew decided they needed to go dancing instead. The second DNF, occurring during the second race, was from a skipper crashing while crossing over region corners. 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, took in a lively display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Bowline and North Sea Bowline Reverse courses, was made up of a majority of ten Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, two sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet in the first race. For the second race, the crewed Bandit IF team left to go and dance during the end of the first race, while two Bandit 22 LTE skippers joined the fleet.

From the left to the right: (in Bandit IFs): boats: Emi, Rodney, Red, Jack, Julie, Siri, Rugger, Christi & Vicky, and Dunia. Committee boat: Daenerys. Dock: Cryptic, and Caethes.

A beautiful Saturday afternoon in October. We started with nine Bandit IFs. One of the Bandit IFs had crew on board. One of the skippers missed the start line, another skipper had a very late start. This would then make the first race between seven skippers.

The first race got off to a good start. Seven Bandit IFs entered the fray and Red immediately took the lead. Dunia separated from the fleet to sail on another line to the first buoy. The first tack went almost flawlessly. Red turned first at the buoy. Followed by Siri, Julie was too high on the mark and dropped to fifth, but she immediately gave chase. By the second mark she was already fourth. Siri and Rugger were ahead of her, and Red was already ahead of the fleet. By the fourth mark, Julie was in third position. At the penultimate mark, Emi got unlucky and had to drop out.

At the start of the second race, the RC was pressed for time. Almost the entire fleet rushed to the start. Rugger took the lead, but Julie and Red had a better line to the first mark. Julie turned first, immediately followed by Red, Rugger. Jack had sailed a little too long and lost contact with Julie. Julie returned first at the second mark, followed by Red, Rugger, Emi, Jack, Dunia and Siri. Julie saved her lead over the fleet. And Rugger hooked up with Red. Shortly followed by Emi and Dunia. Jack and Siri were in a close fight. Red wriggled free from Rugger. On the way to the penultimate mark, disaster struck. Four skippers had bad luck (crash) and had to give up.

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

The first DNF, occurring during the first race, was due to a skipper crashing to their desktop in the middle of the Nance region. The remaining two DNFs, occurring during the second race, were due to skippers crashing while sailing over region corners. The crowds that gathered along 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, reveled in a thrilling display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta and North Sea Bowline courses, was made up of a majority of nine Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, two sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. The North Sea regions were well behaved as one DNF (Did Not Finish) was recorded on the day. The lone DNF was attributed to a skipper having to leave during the second race for plans with her family. The crowds that gathered on the beaches on the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, cheered on the feverish fleet-foiled feline flurry on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Bowline and North Sea Torpedo courses, was made up of six The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows in the first race, five sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively. One skipper opted for their WildWind AC-62, and another for their TMS Nacra 17 for the second race.
