This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta was another all Bandit IF affair during some great sim weather. The fleet this week was entirely comprised of Bandit IF’s with 7 strong. The sims held up wonderfully for both races, as well. We would also like to welcome Carlota and Anne both back to racing in The North Sea after a summer break absence.

The first race, on the NS-SOL-13A course, saw Ultra setting up for a great start and crossing at 00:00:06 with Anne showing hardly any rust at all, from her absence, crossing at 00:00:09. Unfortunately, Anne’s connection wouldn’t hold as all the sims around the Breadnut starting region showed red to her and she disconnected on the region crossing, ultimately taking a DNF. Alexandre was next across at 00:00:17 with Carlota right in tow at 00:00:24. Jackson followed at 00:00:44 with Stu, with Becca, crossing at 00:00:56, and Neil, crossing at 00:00:58, in hot pursuit. Ultra’s lead wouldn’t hold however, as he slipped back towards the rear of the fleet with, Alexandre, Carlota, Jackson, and Neil all making moves past him. Alexandre would hold his eventual lead until the end, finishing first with line honors. Carlota was next to finish, with Jackson, Neil, Ultra, and Stu, with Becca, all following.

The second race, on the NS-SOL-13B course, saw another great start with Anne, with even less rust, crossing the line first, at 00:00:04, with her connection holding on for her as she stayed connected. Stu, with Becca, was next across at 00:00:08, with Ultra right in tow, at 00:00:11. Alexandre was next across, at 00:00:015, followed by Carlota at 00:00:23. Jackson followed at 00:00:36, with Neil making it across at 00:00:40. Anne wouldn’t hold her lead, falling back to the rear of the fleet as the rest made moves to pass her. Alexandre once again took the lead and paces the fleet with Carlota right behind him. Ultra would fall in right behind Carlota while Stu, with Becca, was in tow on her stern. Jackson was next with Neil in pursuit. Alexandre’s lead held as she finished first, taking line honors for both races. Carlota was next to finish with, Ultra, Stu with Becca, Jackson, Neil and Anne all following.

From the laft (in Bandit IFs): Stu and Becca, Carlota, Anne, Alexandre, Ultra, Jackson, Susi, and Neil. On the dock: Cryptic, Petra, Tessan, Max, Gabi, Joshua, Katooke, Cat, and Sophie.

Race Note:
As this weeks fleet was all one boat class the results are presented in single class format.


Ultra (ultramantra Resident) and Jackson (Jacquimo Resident) finished tied with 8 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.
