Calm seas, with a great fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta.

The lone DNF, recorded during the first lap of the second race, was due to a skipper crashing while crossing over region corners. The crowds that gathered on the lighthouse observation deck 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, delighted in a dynamic display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Short) and a two lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop course, was made up of a majority of nine Bandit 22 LTEs. Four Bandit IFs, one Bandit 25 R, and one Bandit 60 rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Another week of calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted the last North Sea Bandit Regatta for August, 2022. With a gentle breeze of 8 knots out of the southwest, building to a moderate breeze of 11 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were generally well behaved as three DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. The first DNF was due to a skipper pulling her boat during the first race, after an incident were another boat fouled her into a course mark. The remaining two DNFs happened during the second race, as two skippers crashed as they crossed over region corners. The crowds that gathered on the lighthouse observation deck 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, were thrilled by a great display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Short) and a two lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop course, was made up of a majority of seven Bandit 22 LTEs. Three Bandit IFs, two sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet in the first race.

The last North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for June, 2022, took place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. We started with seven Bandit IFs. The start of the first race went smoothly. Six boats in a row sailed across the starting line. Alex stayed a little behind. Fanny and Julie took a small lead and arrived first at the first mark. The four other skippers, Siri, Zero, Rugger and Jack, were already slightly behind. They would be competing for third place. Julie and Fanny would compete for first place.

After a short delay, the second race started. Six boats together competed for first place. During the first leg, the fleet would spread out across the North Sea. By the time of the first and only mark, Fanny was already ahead of the fleet with Zero and Julie. Fanny would increase her lead in the final leg.

The third and final race was again led by the same six boats. A skipper gave up in the first leg. Fanny took the lead with Jack in second. Julie, Zero and Siri had to follow at a distance. Another battle for third place ensued between Julie and Siri, but the match already seemed over.

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

Great sim sailing weather, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this years US Memorial Day edition of the North Sea Bandit Regatta. With a gentle breeze of 8 knots out of the southwest, rising to a moderate breeze of 11 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 a new skipper pulling his boat in the second race after misunderstanding how to setup their navigation HUD for a multi-lap race. The crowds that gathered on the lighthouse observation deck on the island in the Ziziphus region, as well as on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Jakana region, delighted in an electric display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Short) and a two lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop course, was made up of a majority of seven Bandit 22 LTEs. Two Bandit IFs, one sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, and one Bandit 25r rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet in the first race. A Bandit IF skipper opted to switch to his Bandit 22 for the second race.

Race Notes:
Zimtzicke (Nicole Myhre) and Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) both finished the second race tied at the finishing line with a time of 13:49. As their final time also remains tied, as they both sailed the same boat, Rule A7 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to score this tie:

If boats are tied at the finishing line or if a handicap or rating system is used and boats have equal corrected times, the points for the place for which the boats have tied and for the place(s) immediately below shall be added together and divided equally. Boats tied for a race prize shall share it or be given equal prizes.

Therefore, both Zimtzicke and Rugger receive 5.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 5 and 6, added together and divided equally.

Calm seas, with another nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The North Sea regions were well behaved for most with two DNFs (Did Not Finish) recorded on the day. The first DNF was attributed to a skipper crashing while crossing over region corners. The remaining DNF occurred during the second race as a skipper got stripped from their boat mere meters from the finish. The crowds that gathered on the beach 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, cheered on an exciting display of fleet racing from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on North Sea Olympic Course (Short) and a two lap affair on the North Sea Short Loop course, was made up of a majority of seven Bandit IFs, five sailing single-handed and two sailing with crew respectively. Four Bandit 22 LTEs rounded out this weeks Bandit fleet.

Today also saw the completion of the North Sea Standard Yearly Adjustment. All handicaps in today’s regatta are from the new adjustment. The North Sea Standard is now at 0:10:30, down from last years 0:10:33. This is in part due to a full year of SL™ being hosted on Amazon servers, with most of that showing in improved successful region crossings helping shave off lap times across every boat. With the publication of this adjustment, we now have handicap times for the The Mesh Shop (TMS) Amnesia (0.74), TMS Captains Launch (0.52), WildWind SC-40 (0.96), and the TMS Star Vintage has a crewed handicap (0.55) separated from it’s single-handed handicap (0.49). Another highlight from this years adjustment include the Trudeau Patchogue II being adjusted down to 0.50 from 0.56 after stale lap times from 2014 were retired from it’s table. North Sea Olympic Course (Long), the course the North Sea Standard is based on, was used 31 times in 2021, with the winning time of each race added to the data the standard is based on. From those 31 races, 300 finishing times were used to help update the handicap values of more than 36 boats in our table. For more info, as well as a link to the Google Sheet used to calculate everything, please see North Sea Handicap Table.

Race Notes:
Juicy (juice651 Resident) and Moon (moonglownight Resident) both finished the first race tied at the finishing line with a time of 10:14. As their final time also remains tied, as they both sailed the same boat, Rule A7 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to score this tie:

If boats are tied at the finishing line or if a handicap or rating system is used and boats have equal corrected times, the points for the place for which the boats have tied and for the place(s) immediately below shall be added together and divided equally. Boats tied for a race prize shall share it or be given equal prizes.

Therefore, both Juicy and Moon receive 5.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 5 and 6, added together and divided equally.


Sea (filax Carter) and Zimtzicke (Nicole Myhre) both finished tied with 5 points. Rule A8.1 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to break this tie:

As Faye and Cate both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to break this 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.
