The last North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for July, 2022, took place on another beautiful Saturday afternoon. We started with six Bandit IFs. 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. One of the front runners sailed away from his companions and the remaining two skippers competed for second place.

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.

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.

A beautiful Saturday afternoon in May. We thought so. We start with eight Bandit IFs. The start of the first race went smoothly. Eight boats in a row would be heading for the first mark. This was an island in Prune. Three skippers, Jack, Rugger and Red, broke down here. Rugger even ended up on the beach. Jack was able to continue sailing and made the best of the situation. Because of this situation, we had a front runner, Julie, who could not be overtaken. The chasing group, included Moon, Siri, Zero and Jack, would compete for second place. this resulted in beautiful images. At the Western turning point, Jack had to let the other three go. The three skippers kept fighting for second place until the very end.

We would start the second races with six boats. Two unlucky ones from the first race had to go home. Before the start, disaster struck for Jack. He had to drop out of the race. So we left with five skippers. Five Bandit Ifs in a row and the battle for first place would be a fierce one. Julie and Moon battled to the bitter end for first place. The other three, Siri, Zero and Alex, skippers should settle for third place. The front runners slowly moved away from the other three legs and the chasing group slowly broke up. As a result, third place was already secured by Siri. Julie made a mistake on the head, but recovered, so that the battle was not yet over.

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

A stormy Saturday afternoon in May highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta. A storm front gathered over the Isles of Fruit, with winds blowing from the south yet The North Sea and Fruit regions behaved reasonably well. Today, we had a fleet of seven Bandit IF’s at the start. Two of the seven Bandit IF’s were crewed.

We had two great races. However, some skippers would not enter the second race, and during the first race we had two dropouts.

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

Race Notes:
Juicy (juice651 Resident) and Siri (Sirius Rosca) finished tied with 9 points. As they both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to 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.

Skipper Race 1 Race 2
juice651 Resident 5 4
Sirius Rosca 4 5

In the last race, Juicy breaks the tie with Siri with his fourth place finish over Siri’s fifth place finish.


Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) and Red (RedHeadJO Resident) both finished tied with 12 points. As they both have the exact same finishes, finishing with a six point finish during the first race and a six point finish during the second race respectively, neither Rule A8.1 or Rule A8.2 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing will satisfy breaking their tie. Therefore, Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) and Red (RedHeadJO Resident) remain tied in sixth place overall.
