A beautiful Saturday afternoon saw the last North Sea Bandit IF Regatta for September, 2022. We started with six Bandit IFs.

During the first race, the fleet remained together until the first buoy. Siri got into an argument with Mark, which left him behind. At the turning point, Moon seemed to be in the lead, but Julie cleverly sailed past them, but disaster struck soon after, forcing her to give up. Moon followed by Jack, Red, and Rugger sailed for the next landmark, the Island of Ziziphus. En route to the finish line there would be fights between Red and Jack, and between Siri, Jack and Rugger.

During the second race, the fleet remained together again. However, this time disaster struck for Red. Julie took the lead and Moon followed in her wake. Both were followed by Jack. Rugger and Siri would compete for last place. And this would be a fierce battle! At the head, nothing would change until the finish.

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

Race Notes:
Red (RedHeadJO Resident), Jack (Jacquimo Resident), Siri (Sirius Rosca), and Rugger (ruggeromare Resident) all 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:

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Red’s favor with having a second place finish over Jack’s and Siri’s third place, and Rugger’s fourth place finishes as their best.

As Jack and Siri both have duplicate finishes, Rule A8.2 of Appendix A, Scoring, 2021 – 2024 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing is used to further 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.

Calm to choppy seas, with a light fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, rising to 21 knots during the second race, The North Sea regions were behaved for most as two DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. Both DNFs were attributed to the same skipper, as she crashed on a region border in the first race, and crashed in the middle of a region in the second race. The crowds that gathered on the shores 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 the energetic fleet-foiled feline fury on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Triple Pink and North Sea Extreme Reverse courses, was made up of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, two sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, during the first race. One single-handed skipper opted to take on crew, on her Flying Shadow, for the second race.

The remaining two DNFs, occurring in both portions, were from skippers crashing while crossing over region corners.

Another beautiful Saturday afternoon in September was the backdrop for this weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta. We started with four Bandit IFs.

In the first race, Julie already took a lead on the other skippers at the start. Moon and Rugger followed close behind. On the way to mark 4, Julie took the wrong line, causing Moon to take the lead. Julie didn’t give up yet and would battle Moon until the very end. Darb had bad luck at mark 4 and had to give up.

At the start of the second race we were with three boats. The skippers crossed the starting line almost simultaneously. Julie and Moon had better speed and immediately took the lead. Rugger had to watch as his fellow fighters sailed away from him. At the second mark, Moon took the lead, but Julie continued to follow closely. Each looking for the best line, they continue the fight for first 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.

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

Race Notes:
Julie (JulieRoyale Resident) and Moon (moonglownight Resident) both finished the first race tied at the finishing line with a time of 18:47. 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 Julie and Moon receive 1.5 points, as the product for the place for which they have tied and for the place immediately below, 1 and 2, added together and divided equally.

This weeks North Sea Bandit IF Regatta took place on another beautiful Saturday afternoon in September. We started with five Bandit IFs. One of the Bandit IFs had crew on board.

In the first race, Julie already took a lead on the other skippers at the start. On the way to the first mark, a skipper, Zero, had to give up with technical problems. Arriving at the first mark we had two leaders, Julie and Siri, with Angela. Rugger and Darb had lagged behind. At the turning point, Darb also had to give up.

At the start of the second race, Rugger took the lead, followed immediately by Siri and Julie. Jack, who had joined the group, followed fourth. On the way to the second mark, Rugger hit the rocks and had to let Siri and Julie go. He found a connection with Jack. However, in the course of the race, problems also caused him to retire. This would leave Julie and Siri battling it out for first place and Rugger was in third place. Darb followed at a distance from Rugger.

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.

Calm seas, with a nice fleet turnout, highlighted this weeks Cat Fight in The North Sea. With a fresh breeze of 18 knots out of the southwest, The North Sea regions were well behaved as no DNFs (Did Not Finish) were recorded on the day. 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, cheered on the frantic fleet-foiled feline furor on display from this weeks skippers. This weeks fleet, sailing on the North Sea Manta Reverse and North Sea Torpedo courses, was made up of seven The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows, six sailing single-handed and one crewed respectively, during the first race. For the second race, one skipper opted to switch to their WildWind AC-62 instead.
