This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta saw some really great sim weather and a great turnout. The sims behaved well as the fleet raced back and forth across the North Sea in our monthly ‘There and Back Again’ series between the Breadnut race line and the Eden Auk race line. The turn out for today’s regatta was excellent as we had nine Bandit IFs and one Bandit 25 in the fleet mix.

Today’s winner was Kurt (Kurt Calamity), with Margo (gsgraaf Resident) second, and Red (RedHeadJO Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate and the SLCG for helping with race duties.
Carlota (Carlota Dufaux) and Jackson (Jacquimo Resident) both finished tied with 9 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 Carlota’s favor with having a third place finish over Jackson’s fourth place finish as his best.
