This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta was an entirely Bandit IF and F affair. The sim weather was decent, and the only crashed to note were from corners. The fleet itself was made up of three IF’s and two F’s.
The first race, on North Sea Short Loop run in 3 laps, saw a great effort from Red. Red thought the line didn’t record her start, and circled around to start again. Yet, the line did indeed record her start at 00:00:01, but she was now behind. She hung in there, and was rewarded for her effort, catching up to the fleet and taking first place.
The second race was just as exciting as the first, run on North Sea World Cup Reach (NS-WC Rch), with the fleet staying tight through the first upwind leg. The fleet did start to spread out with Red and Alexandre in the front, closely staying neck and neck with Rosie right on their stern. Red wound up extending a lead, however, and ultimately took first place again.

Today’s winner was Red, with Alexandre second, and Katana 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 and Katana finished tied with 6 points. As they both have duplicate finishes, 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.“

In the last race, Alexandre breaks the tie with Katana with his second place finish over Katana’s fourth place finish.
