This weeks Bandit Regatta in The North Sea saw some smooth sim weather with fun racing. This weeks fleet was made up entirely of Bandit IF’s, with 6 in the first and 5 in the second race.

In the first race, racing was tight between Julia and Red, with Julia finally pulling away on the final leg. At the rear of the fleet, Rosie and Anabelle were battling neck and neck for position with Rosie just getting ahead at the end.

In the second race, racing again was tight between Julia and Red with Julia once again finishing ahead towards the end. Rosie was closely racing Ian until the very end when Ian succumbed to a crash and a DNF.

This week we also see the introduction of new prizes for the Bandit Regatta. Prize plaques will now be awarded in place of the previously used t-shirts. The prize plaques will be sent out by Petra, after the results are posted for the regatta on race day.

Due to the field being composed entirely of IF’s this week, handicaps will not be included nor are needed in the results.

Race Note:
Rosie and Ian both finished tied with 9 points. Rule A8.2 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the 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
Arwyn Silverweb 5 4
ollyian1 Resident 4 5

In the last race, Rosie breaks the tie with Ian with her fourth place finish over Ian’s fifth place finish.

We have a superb paint supplied by Ali Vultee, see her paint here: Ali’s Boat Paint Shop, and prize plaques for the top three places.
