This weeks Bandit Regatta, in The North Sea, had some choppy sim weather at the start but some great racing throughout. Unfortunately the sim waves caused 2 DNF’s in the first race and one in the second race. This weeks fleet was made up of six Bandit IF’s, two Bandit 55’s and one Bandit 25 initially, until the second race when Rosie changed to her Bandit 25 from her Bandit IF.

The first race, NS Short Loop, which is becoming a favorite for the IF sailors, featured 3 laps. Close racing was on hand between Angelic, Alexandre, Simya, Carlota, ViV, and Rosie until Angelic started to gain towards the second lap. Then, by the third lap, the IF pack was starting to spread fairly far, with Rosie succumbing to a DNF with a crash.

The second race, NS-WC Reach, saw a smaller fleet as some had to partake to RL endeavors, but featured a great battle between Carlota and Angelic through the whole course. Angelic ultimately pulled it out at the end, coming across before Carlota.

Race Director: Cryptic
Wind: SW (225°) 18kts

Did Not Finish (DNF) = number of finish +1)

Today’s winner was August, with Angelic second, and Carlota in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.
