From left (in Bandit IF’s): Alexandre, Anne, Red, Carlota and Alina, Gabi, Petra, Anabella, and Rosie and Connie.

This weeks Bandit Regatta, in The North Sea, saw some choppy sim weather in the first race, NS Short Loop, but cleared up for the second race, NS Trapezoid. This weeks fleet was all Bandit IF’s. The pack was tight out of the start with Carlota, Gabi and Petra neck and neck, during the first race, with Gabi grabbing first. In the second race, the fleet was a little more spread out but there were numerous position changes up front with Anne ultimately grabbing first. The final points and standings are below, after the full race results.

One thought on “Bandit Regatta – April 4 2016

  1. Excellent racing. Sorry a few crashed out. SL has been acting up recently and even I had a few glitches today.

    Well done to Gabi, excellent first ever race win 🙂 Well done to Anne in the 2nd race.

    Thanks to Cryptic for directing the races.
