This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta saw a nice dedicated turnout with smooth sim weather. The sims continued their almost month long streak of great performance with no crashes or lag. This weeks fleet consisted entirely of Bandit IF’s until the second race, when Cor switched things up and raced his Bandit 50 instead.

The first race, on the North Sea Olympic Course (Long) course, saw a nice clean start, or ‘vanilla ice cream’ start as Joshua put it, with everyone on a starboard tack across the line and no barging or ROW violations. Alexandre was first across with Stu and then Jackson next. Rulette followed them across with Cor crossing last. Alexandre kept the pace and the lead for the entire course, crossing the finish first. Stu was next across with Jackson following. Rulette pulled into the dock at the committee boat, half way through the course to record a DNF as she bowed out early. Cor, bringing up the rear of the fleet, crossed last.

The second race, on the North Sea Trapezoid course, saw a more exciting start. Stu was first across the line on a starboard tack but Alexandre and Cor, changing tactics and now racing his Bandit 50, were next choosing a risky port start. Alexandre and Cor had just cleared the course side area of the start line in the nick of time, as Jackson crossed next on a starboard tack. Alexandre and Cor’s risky choice paid off as they both rounded the first course mark in Ziziphus ahead of Stu. Alexandre wound up taking line honors with Cor crossing second. Stu followed next with Jackson finishing after. As Cor raced his Bandit 50 in this race, handicaps will be applied so the line results will not be reflective of the final results.

On the dock: Schwebewahn, Gryfin, Lilith, and Petra.

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta saw some fast racing and a bumpy rough start. The seas played nice again, continuing their streak of calm performance, allowing for some fast racing in both the small boats and big boats races. Not all was smooth, however, as there was a barging incident in the start of the big boats race that ultimately resulted in DNF’s for four boats.

This weeks small boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Trapezoid course, was made up of a majority of three Nacra 17’s. Two Dolphin Moth’s, two Melges-24’s, two Bandit IF”s, a Trudeau One, a Leetle Cat II, and a Bandit 25 made up the remainder of the fleet. Racing got off to a quick start as my Dolphin Moth paced the fleet. Joshua, with Gabi as crew, racing on his newly acquired Dolphin Moth, was right behind me. The Nacra 17’s of Lalia, Arya, and Jamie followed next with the Melges-24’s of Beane and Lucy right in the middle of that pack. Alexandre, in his Bandit IF, was next with Cor, in his Trudeau One, Ultramantra, in his Bandit IF, Lampoon, in his Leetle Cat II, and Burton, in his Bandit 25, taking up the rear. I crossed the line first with Joshua and Gabi finishing next. Lalia, in her Nacra 17, managed to squeak ahead of Beane, in her Melges-24, and cross the line just 4 seconds ahead of her for an exciting finish. Lucy was next, in her Melges-24, followed by Jamie, Alexandre, Cor, Ultramantra and finally Lampoon.

This weeks big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Copacabana course, was made up of a large majority of 5 Wildwind RC-44’s. Two Trudeau 12 Metre’s, a Bandit 50, a One Design 65, and a Ushuaia made up the remainder of the big boat fleet. The fleet got off to a rough start, as Lampoon got to the start line early, sailed up the line to avoid going over early, and barged several of the RC-44’s as they were approaching the line on their start. The contact with the RC-44’s seemed to spell doom for them as three crashed out in the Carob region immediately south of the start line, recording DNF’s. Ultramantra’s 12 Metre also succumbed to a crash and a DNF as he crashed in Carob as well, after making contact at the line just to the rear of Lampoon. The rest of the fleet raced on, however, with Beane, in her One Design 65, Arya, unscathed in her RC-44R, and Alexandre, also unscathed in his RC-44, lead the fleet. Lampoon was next, holding on with his Trudeau 12 Metre, with my Ushuaia, and Cor’s bandit 50 not far behind. I would up passing Lampoon, along the windward side, on the long reaching leg of the course between Eden Fulmer and Sloe. Cor subsequently passed Lampoon on the second to the lest leg, in Sapote.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta featured some exciting racing and smooth sim weather. We saw continued smooth sailing weather among the North Sea sims with no DNF’s recorded from crashes in the fleet. Great racing was also on display as some of our newer sailors are really showing great improvement from week to week. This weeks fleet was made up of a majority of six Bandit IF’s with one lone bandit 60 making up the remainder.

Racing got off to a great start on NS-SOL-13A for the first race. Bettie, with Ansa as crew, crossed the line first in her Bandit IF. Joshua, in his Bandit IF, was next with Jackson, in his Bandit IF, Cor, in his Bandit IF, Burton, in his Bandit 60, and Ultramantra, in his Bandit IF, all following. Alexandre came across the line before Burton but crashed going into Carob and came back to re-start and finished the race in good shape. Bettie, with Ansa, showing great improvement as she’s only recently just started sailing, took line honors, her first! Joshua was next to finish, with Jackson, Cor, Alexandre, and Ultramantra all following. Burton was disqualified for using the Autopilot sail auto trimming feature on his Bandit 60 during the race. This takes any sailmanship out of racing the boat and is an automatic disqualification if used during any races in The North Sea.

The second race, on NS-SOL-13B, saw an exciting start. Joshua and Bettie, with Ansa, both pulled off a risky port start in front of Alexandre, who was on a starboard start, with just enough room to spare. Ultramantra was across next, with Jackson, Cor, and Burton, in his lone Bandit 60, across next. Alexandre showed some great sailing skill as he passed both Bettie and Joshua to lead the fleet as it rounded the southern edge of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. Alexandre ultimately took line honors. Bettie was next across followed by Joshua, Ultramantra, Jackson, Cor and finally Burton.

Well done to all sailors. Fun racing and good sim conditions. This boat is very low lag, so it doesn’t cause any problems itself. We just need to to wind-shadow to be a little more exciting. We’re asking Cory to add that. Feel free to add your vote for that feature.

 

North Sea Open Regatta – August 17th 2016

From the left at the front: Beane (Melges-24), Lampoon (in the distance, Leetle Cat II), Cryptic (Dolphin Moth), Jamie (Nacra 17), Cor (Trudeau One), and Jackson (Bandit IF).
On the dock: Joshua, Arya, and Petra.

From the left at the front: Beane (Melges-24), Lampoon (in the distance, Leetle Cat II), Cryptic (Dolphin Moth), Jamie (Nacra 17), Cor (Trudeau One), and Jackson (Bandit IF).
On the dock: Joshua, Arya, and Petra.

Great sim weather, a nice turnout, and some swift racing were on display in this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The sims continued their recent string of smooth performance. We had a nice turnout for both small boat and big boat races as well with a fleet of 10 across both.

The small boat fleet, racing on the NS-SOL-13A course, was made up of a majority of five Bandit IF’s. Two Nacra 17’s, a Dolphin Moth, a Melges-24, a Leetle Cat II, and a Trudeau One made up the remainder of the fleet. The start was foul free and quick as my Dolphin Moth paced ahead of the fleet with Arya, in her Nacra 17, close behind. Beane followed, in her Melges-24, along with Cor, in his Trudeau One. The IF pack came next, with Alexandre, and Red, Lampoon, sneaking through in his Leetle Cat II, Cranston, and Jackson in the rear. Jamie, who started out pretty strong on his Nacra 17, tickled a corner and wound up recording a DNF.

The big boat fleet, racing on the newly created North Sea Copacabana course, was made up of a majority of three Wildwind RC-44’s. Two bandit 60’s, a Quest IACC, a Ushuaia, a One Design 65, and a Trudeau 12 Metre made up the remainder of the fleet. The start was quick and clean with Arya crossing the line first, followed by myself with Dess as crew in my Ushuaia. Beane was right behind me, in her One Design 65, and Cranston with Shaylin as his crew, in his Bandit 60, next across the line. Alexandre, in his RC-44, Cor, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, Jamie, in his RC-44R, Lampoon, in his Quest IACC, and newcomer Alec, in his Bandit 60, were all next across the line. The Wildwind RC-44’s of Arya, and Alexandre, along with Beane’s One Design 65 paced the fleet. Jamie continued his string of bad luck, by recording another DNF after another corner tickling incident in his RC-44. Lampoon stayed comfortably in the middle of the pack through the course, with Cor and I exchanging positions several times just to his stern. The Bandit 60 pack brought up the rear, with Cranston, with Shaylin crewing, and Alec.

Another week of great sailing sim weather and really nice turn out featured in this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The sims were well behaved, continuing their string of smooth performance, four our monthly set of courses we call ‘There and Back Again’. We also had a really nice turn out with a fleet of 9 boats. We also saw a lot of spectators gathering on the island in the Ziziphus region as well as at the lighthouse in the Eden Auk region.

This weeks fleet was made up of a majority of seven Bandit IF’s. A Bandit 55 and Bandit 60 made up the remainder of the fleet.

The first race, on the North Sea Breadnut to Eden Auk course, saw the fleet get off to a great start. All 9 boats went across the line in a relatively short time with no fouls. Alexandre, in his Bandit IF, took the lead and didn’t look back with Ultramantra, in his Bandit IF, following up close behind in second. Stu, in his bandit IF, was next, with Joshua, in his Bandit IF, Cranston, in his Bandit 60, Conner, in his Bandit 55, Bettie with Jo, in her Bandit IF, Cor, in his Bandit IF, and finally Jackson, in his Bandit IF, all following. Joshua was experiencing network issues and wound up recording a DNF.

The second race, on the North Sea Eden Auk to Breadnut course, the return portion of ‘There and Back again’, saw a risky port start from Conner that did not pay off. Conner committed a Rule 11 (port/starboard ROW) violation when he made contact with Ultramantra’s Bandit IF just after the start line. Conner did his penalty turn and raced on. Alexandre once again paced the fleet out front with Ultramantra maintaining his composure and following up next. Cranston, Jackson, Bettie with Jo, Cor and Stu all followed behind. Conner had some more trouble when the Tasmanian devil got out of it’s cage again and gnawed on his net cable, causing him to disconnect from SL. He got back in, however, and was able to finish the race.
