This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta saw some excellent sim weather with a nice turnout. The sims behaved marvelously as everyone in the fleet finished both races with no crashes or DNFs. We also had another great turnout of spectators to witness some exciting sailing at the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in Eden Puffin, along the shore in Eden Albatros, at the committee boat dock in Breadnut, and on the beaches of Lighthouse Isle in Ziziphus. This weeks fleet was also an all Bandit IF affair, with six boats turning up for the regatta.

The first race, on the NS-SOL-13A course, saw the entire fleet get off to a quick start as everyone was across the start line in 23 seconds. Jackson started things off, crossing the start line at 00:00:04 with Alexandre crossing just a second behind him at 00:00:05. Carlota was next to cross at 00:00:09 with Chris following her at 00:00:20. Stu was next to cross at 00:00:22 with Neil just on his stern at 00:00:23. Jackson’s short lead at the start would not hold as Alexandre and Carlota both overtook him on the first leg along the way to the southern tip of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. As Alexandre and Carlota both rounded the southern tip of Lighthouse Isle, the remainder of the fleet settled in for the rest of the course as Jackson, Chris, Stu, and Neil all followed one by one. Alexandre held his lead until the finish, crossing first and claiming line honors with Carlota crossing just behind him. Jackson was next to finish followed by Chis, Stu, and Neil.

The second race, on the NS-SOL-13B course, saw Jackson once again get off to a great start as he crossed the start line at 00:00:02. Carlota and Stu were next across the start line as they both crossed at 00:00:11. Alexandre followed, crossing the start line at 00:00:21 with Neil crossing just behind him at 00:00:28. Chris was next to cross the start line at 00:01:25. Jackson held his lead going into the first mark, the southern tip of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, while Alexandre overtook Carlota to take up second with Stu, Neil, and Chris not far behind. Jackson’s lead would not hold with Alexandre overtaking him on the third leg from the island in Sloe to Lighthouse Isle in Ziziphus. Alexandre would hold his lead until the finish and also claim line honors once again, with Jackson holding on to cross the finish line in second. Carlota was just on Jackson’s stern as she crossed the finish 4 seconds after him in third. Stu was next to finish followed by Neil and Chris.

Race Note:
Jackson (Jacquimo Resident) and Carlota (Carlota Dufaux) finished tied with 5 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.

Skipper Race 1 Race 2
Jacquimo Resident 3 2
Carlota Dufaux 2 3

In the last race, Jackson breaks the tie with Carlota with his second place finish over Carlota’s third place finish.
