This weeks Trudeau Patchogue II Class races, in The North Sea, saw a nice turnout with some decent sailing sim weather. We had six sailors turn up for a competitive fleet of Patchogue II’s. Carlota got her first taste of racing the Patch, as Petra lent her Naked Lady III to race and try the Patch out in. The sims also played nicely for us as we only saw one DNF in each race, not to crashes.

Today’s winner was Cryptic (Cryptic Resident), with Kurt (Kurt Calamity) second, and Luna (LunaAzulejo Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Note:
Kurt (Kurt Calamity), Luna (LunaAzulejo Resident), and Susi (Susicat Oh) all finished tied with 7 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
Kurt Calamity 1 6
LunaAzulejo Resident 3 4
Susicat Oh 3 4

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Kurt’s favor with having a first place finish over Luna’s and Susi’s third place finish as both of their best.
Luna and Susi still remain tied with duplicate finishes. Therefore 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
LunaAzulejo Resident 4 3
Susicat Oh 3 4

In the last race, Luna breaks the tie with Susi with her third place finish over Susi’s fourth place finish.
