This weeks Trudeau Classic Regatta, in The North Sea, saw a great turnout with a nicely mixed fleet. This weeks fleet consisted of four 12 Metre’s, two Patchogue II’s, a Hepcat, a Leetle Cat II, and a Francois Jacques, that was switched out for a T-12 by it’s owner, Elbag, for the second race.

The first race, on NS-SOL-13B, saw some spirited competition among the 12 Metre’s with everyone chasing Peter after he passed Cole on the first upwind beat. The rest of the 12 Metre’s remained tight all the up to the finish. The small Patchogue II pack also some some tight racing as Asami and Omar were close for the entire course.

The second race, on North Sea Butterfly, saw Elbag switch out his Francois Jacques for a T-12, however RL came knocking and he recorded a DNF as he had to leave. The rest of the fleet saw some exciting racing between Peter and I, right from the start. The sound of Peter’s sails were in my ears the entire course as he stuck tight with me, finishing a mere 20 seconds behind me.

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

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

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

Prize plaques will be awarded for the first, second, and third place finishers based on the final points tally.

Race Note:

Arya and Omar finished tied with 12 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 Worst
Arya89 Resident 5 7
OutToLunch Resident 6 6

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Arya’s favor with having a fifth place finish over Omar’s sixth place finish as his best.
