This weeks Bandit Regatta, in The North Sea, saw some choppy sim weather but still produced an exciting race. We even got to see Elbag join in the second race before other responsibilities called his attention away. This weeks fleet was made up of 3 bandit IF’s, 2 Bandit F’s, a Bandit 25, and a Bandit 60. This was also our monthly “There and Back Again” series, using both start lines in Breadnut and Eden Auk.

The first race, North Sea Breadnut to Eden Auk, saw stiff competition between the Bandit F’s of Red and Alexandre with Rulette’s Bandit IF following close behind. Rosie took line honors in her Bandit 25 with Cranston in his Bandit 60 following in the rear of the fleet.

The second race, North Sea Eden Auk to Breadnut, showcased a tight battle between Rulette and Carlota. Rulette got off to a great start with Carlota nipping at her stern the whole course. Rulette ultimately finished ahead. Carlota actually had the faster lap time but Rulette nailed her start giving her clear air and just enough of a lead to finish ahead.

Race Note:
Rulette and Alexandre 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
Rulette Resident 1 4
RedHeadJO Resident 2 3

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 Alexanre’s second place finish as his best.

Red and Cranston both finished tied with 7 points. Rule A8.1 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the 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 first place finish over Cranston’s third place finish as his best.
