This weeks Bandit Regatta was an all IF affair with an appearance of two F’s. We also had some great sailing weather to start that turned a little choppy towards the end causing 2 DNF’s in the last race.
The first race, on North Sea Olympic Course Long, saw the entire fleet impressively take off like rockets in the pre-start and perform a clean start across the line. Rulette took off from there with Red and the rest of the pack following after. Rulette increased her lead to almost 2 and half sims at the end, with Red putting up a gallant effort to stay within’ reach. The rest of the fleet saw some spirited position changes, with Alexandre, sailing his F, staying neck and neck with Arya for most of the course.
The second race saw the same wildfire start, with 6 IF’s and 2 F’s darting around in the pre-start for another clean start across the line. This time, Carlota was the first across and led most of the way. Arya, Alex and Rulete weren’t far behind, with the rest of the fleet stretching out behind them. Unfortunately, the sims got pesky and claimed 2 of the fleet to crashes, with them unfortunately recording DNF’s.

Today’s winner was Carlota, with Rulette second, and Red in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate and to the SLCG for helping with race duties.
Alexandre was unfortunately disqaulified form the second race due to sailing the incorrect course.
Rulette and Red both finished tied with 5 points. Rule A8.1 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing is used to break this tie:
“If there is a series score tie between two or more boats, each boat’s race scores shall be listed in order of best to worst, and at the first point(s) where there is a difference the tie shall be broken in favour of the boat(s) with the best score(s). No excluded scores shall be used.“
|Skipper||Best Finish||Next Best Finish|
With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Rulette’s favor with having a first place finish over Red’s second place finish as her best.
