This weeks Trudeau Classic Regatta, in The North Sea, featured some close 12 Metre racing along with a decent turn out. The fleet for the first race, on North Sea Olympic Long, was almost entirely 12 Metre’s, with five, except for one lone T12 making up the remainder. The second race, on the newly created North Sea Manta, substituted a New York 30, and added a Patchogue II, for a fleet of seven. Racing was close among the 12 Metre’s up front in both races.
This week we also recalculated the handicap for the 12 Metre, now at 0.76 up from 0.69. You can see our North Sea Handicap table here. Over the course of a year of racing the 12 Metre, people have discovered how to sail it faster. Petra will have a post tomorrow with more on this.

Today’s winner was Kristaly, with Sue second, and Jamie 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.
Jamie and Cole both finished tied with 6 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 Jamie’s favor with having a second place finish over Cole’s third place finish as his best.
Kyreena and Rulette tied with 13 points however neither A8.1 or A8.2 to of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing will break the tie so it remains.
