Stormy seas and a great spectator turn out featured in this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The North Sea sims, although restarted 3 hours before racing started still were turbulent as they caused several crashes and DNFs in each race. Spectators turnout this week was great as we had crowds gathered at the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, the committee boat dock in the Breadnut Region, along the shore in the Eden Albatros region, and along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. This weeks races were also an all Bandit IF affair as the entire fleet was IFs.

The first race, on the North Sea Manta course, saw a nice clean start from the fleet. Carlota, with Gabi, got things underway as she crossed the start line at 00:00:03. Jackson was next across the start line at 00:00:06. Neil was across the start line next at 00:00:13 followed by Markz at 00:00:14. Rayz was next to cross the start line at 00:00:18, followed by Noel, at 00:00:31, Alexandre, at 00:01:33, and Arwyn, with Rurua, at 00:01:48. Carlota, with Gabi, took off, pacing the fleet for the entire course. Jackson was right on her stern up to the first mark in the Sapote region, when his boat stopped responding and he abandoned the race, taking a DNF. Neil was settled in just behind them while Markz and Rayz fought neck and neck until both crashed on crossings, also taking DNFs. Noel was just aft of Markz and Ray, as Alexandre was just on his stern but unfortunately also crashed and recorded a DNF. Arwyn, with Rurua, settled in at the rear of the fleet. Carlota, with Gabi, crossed the finish line first, taking line honors, followed by Neil, crossing second. Noel crossed next followed by Arwyn with Rurua.

The second race, a 3 lap jaunt on the North Sea Short Loop course, saw the majority of the fleet off to a quick start as three quarters of the sailors were across the start line before 28 seconds ticked off the race clock. Noel got things started as he crossed the start line at 00:00:02. Rayz and Alexandre were both next to cross the start line at 00:00:06. Carlota, with Gabi, was across the start line next at 00:00:10. Jackson was next to cross the start line at 00:00:22 followed by Neil at 00:00:27, and Arwyn with Rurua at 00:00:30. Elbag was across the start line next at 00:01:18 with Moon right on his stern at 00:01:19. Carlota, with Gabi, and Alexandre both had cleaner windward lines across the start line and passed Noel on the first leg of the course. Noel settled into third in the fleet as Neil, Jackson, and Rayz were neck and neck on his stern. Jackson unfortunately crashed on a crossing and recorded a DNF. Arwyn, with Rurua, Elbag, and Moon also wound up recording DNFs as Arwyn and Moon crashed, and Elbag’s boat stopped responding causing him to abandon the race. Gabi, crewing for Carlota, wound up crashing during the second lap, leaving Carlota single handed as Alexandre overtook her and gained the lead. Alexandre held onto that lead as he crossed the finish line first, taking line honors. Carlota crossed the finish line second, followed by Noel, Neil, and Rayz.

Today’s winner was Carlota (Carlota Dufaux), with Alexandre (ramuf Resident) second, and Neil (eager2discover Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Note:
As this weeks race was all one class for both races, the results are presented in single class format.


Alexandre (ramuf Resident), Neil (eager2discover Resident), and Noel (Noel Oh) all finished tied with 6 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
ramuf Resident 1 5
eager2discover Resident 2 4
Noel Oh 3 3

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Alexandre’s favor with having a first place finish over Neil’s second place, and Noel’s third place finishes as their best. Subsequently, Neil breaks the tie with Noel with his second place best finish over Noel’s third place best finish.


Arwyn (Arwyn Silverweb) and Rayz (Rayzza Rubble) both finished tied with 10 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
Arwyn Silverweb 4 6
Rayzza Rubble 5 5

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Arwyn’s favor with having a fourth place finish over Rayz’s fifth place finish as his best.


Markz (Markz McMahon), Elbag (Elbag Gable), and Moon (moonglownight Resident) all finished tied with 12 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
Markz McMahon 5 7
Elbag Gable 6 6
moonglownight Resident 6 6

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Markz’s favor with having a fifth place finish over Elbag and Moon’s sixth point best finishes. As Elbag and Moon both have duplicate finishes in both races, a DNS and DNF, neither rule A8.1 or A8.2 will break their tie and they remain tied in ninth overall.
