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, rising 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, occurring during the first race, was due to a skippers internet connection dying on her during the race. The crowds that gathered on the beaches 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, were thrilled by an exciting display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta and North Sea Manta Reverse courses, was made up of a split majority of four Bandit IFs, and four Bandit 22 LTEs. One Bandit 25 R, and one Bandit 60 rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet in the first race. One Bandit IF skipper opted to switch to her Bandit 22, and another skipper joined the fleet with a Bandit 22 for the second race.

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.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the first North Sea Open Regatta of October, 2022. The North Sea regions were well behaved as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF, occurring during the small boat fleet, was due to a skipper pulling her boat after frustration from getting caught in irons on the first leg. The second DNF, occurring during the big boat portion, was due to a skipper crashing while crossing across a region corner. The crowds that gathered on the beaches of the islands in the Ziziphus and Genip regions, and along the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier and small race dock in the Eden Jakana region, reveled in a competitive display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers.

This weeks small boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta Reverse course, was made up of a majority of five Bandit 22 LTEs. Two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class, one TMS Nacra 17, one TMS Sea Boss – Rider, one Bandit IF, and one Bandit 25 R rounded out this weeks small boat fleet. Meanwhile, the big boat fleet, sailing on the North Sea Double Loop course, was made up of a split majority of two TMS I-Mocca 60s, and two WildWind RC-44Rs. One TMS One Design 65, Trudeau Runa IV, and one Bandit 55 rounded out this weeks big boat fleet.

Note: As of the publishing of these results, the handicap value for the TMS Es Paradis has been adjusted to 0.94, from its preliminary release value of 1.00. Please see North Sea Handicap Table for more of our handicap values, and the link to the Google Sheet used to calculate them.

A beautiful Saturday afternoon was the scene for the last North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for April, 2022. This time we had a fleet of eight Bandit IFs at the start. Two of the eight Bandit IFs had crews. One of the skippers had to give up due to technical problems. So we left with seven bandit IFs. The Eden and North Zee regions behaved well.

Today we had a short route through Eden. Between the islands of Eden, the skippers should keep looking for the ideal lines. Before the start, the skippers were given the task of compiling the route by means of a map and a list. The route would be the same for everyone, but everyone had their own way of composing the route. One of the skippers had very quickly found the ideal lines between the islands, quickly extending her lead, making her impossible to overtake.

The second race was more of a familiar battle scene for the skippers, as we stayed in the North Sea. The skippers stayed together until the first mark. After the second mark, a skipper took the lead so as not to release it. The other skippers continued to battle for second 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.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. The North Sea regions were well behaved with no DNFs (Did Not Finish) recorded on the day. The crowds that gathered on 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, cheered on the frantic fleet-foiled feline frenzy on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta Reverse and North Sea Snipe courses, was made up of a majority of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, two sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively. Two WildWind AC-62s, two TMS Nacra 17s , and one WildWind AC-45 rounded out this weeks catamaran fleet for the first race. The second race saw one Flying Shadow skipper pick up crew, and one AC-62 skipper opt for his WildWind AC-45 instead.

Today’s winner was Julie (JulieRoyale Resident), with Isa (isab DeCuir) second, and Jenna (jnx1e Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Jenna (jnx1e Resident) and Moon (moonglownight Resident) both finished tied with 8 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
jnx1e Resident 3 5
moonglownight Resident 4 4

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Jenna’s favor with having a third place finish over Moon’s fourth place finish as his best.

The first North Sea Triple Threat for April took place on a beautiful Thursday afternoon with good sailing weather coming from the southwest. Today we had five Bandit 22 LTEs, two Bandit IFs and two The Mesh Shop (TMS) Star Class at the starting line. A Star Class had crew on board.

Today we let the Bandit IFs and Star Class start again first. Since there were only two boats of those two classes, the focus was on the Bandit 22. None the less, everyone sailed neatly and correctly. In the Bandit 22 class it would be a fight between two skippers, but it was going to be an exciting race in the end.

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.

Race Director: Daenerys
Assistant Race Directors: Tamarushka, and Cryptic

Wind: 225° (SW) 18kts

Wind: 220° (SW) 18kts

Note:
Did Not Finish (DNF) = number of finish +1
Disqualified (DSQ) = number of finish + number of DNFs + 1
Did Not Start (DNS) = number of start +1

Today’s winners on the Bandit 22 LTE were Sea (filax Carter), with Nicole (Nicole Myhre) 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:
Sea (filax Carter) and Nicole (Nicole Myhre) finished tied with 3 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
filax Carter 2 1
Nicole Myhre 1 2

In the last race, Sea breaks the tie with Nicole with her first place finish over Nicole’s second place finish.
