This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta featured some great racing with reasonably calm sim weather. The racing was exciting as there were several position changes at the front of the fleet in both races. The sims behaved well as there was only one DNF recorded in each race to crashes. Plus. this weeks fleets were made up entirely of Bandit IFs.

The first race, on the North Sea Triple Pink course, was the fleet get off to a speedy start as half the racers were across the start line with 8 seconds on the race clock. Daenerys and Alexandre were both first across the start line, crossing together at 00:00:04. Jackson was right on their sterns, crossing the start line next at 00:00:05. Ultra was next across the start line at 00:00:08, followed by Cor at 00:00:28, Rugger at 00:00:29, Soh at 00:00:37, and Gryfin at 00:00:38. Daenerys put up a good fight as she held the lead in the front of the fleet over the first leg of the course to the pink buoy in the Sloe region. Alexandre and Jackson were both right on her stern though and soon both made moves to pass her as they raced along the second leg to the white buoy in the Eden Puffin region. Ultra settled in just aft of the front three in the fleet. Cor unfortunately crashed and recorded a DNF. Rugger took up position aft of Ultra but wound up missing the fifth course mark and was disqualified(DSQ) for racing an incorrect course. Soh settled into position towards the rear of the fleet, with Gryfin taking up the rear. Alexandre crossed the finish line first, taking line honors, with Jackson crossing the second. Daenerys was next across the finish line followed by Ultra, Soh, and Gryfin.

The second race, on the North Sea Trapezoid course, saw the entire fleet across the start line as 28 seconds ticked off the race clock. Gryfin took a gamble and started on a port-tack, with the rest of the fleet all on starboard-tacks, crossing the start line at 00:00:01. Gryfin’s port-tack gamble did not pay off, however, as he fouled four boats on the course side of the race line, all on starboard-tacks as his boat either forced them off course or collided with their bows (Rule 10*). Alexandre was next to cross the start line, at 00:00:02, followed by Daenerys at 00:00:03, Ultra at 00:00:08, Jackson at 00:00:12, Red at 00:00:13, Moon at 00:00:16, Rugger at 00:00:21, and Soh at 00:00:28. Gryfin continued on his port-tack course, heading west from the Breadnut region, however he was subsequently disqualified for finishing the race and failing to complete a 360° penalty turn for his Rule 10 foul after the start. Alexandre took advantage of his quick start and gained the lead by the time he rounded the first course mark, the green buoy south of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. Jackson and Daenerys were both right on Alexandre’s stern, as they both battle neck and neck for position. Ultra settled in just aft of Jackson and Daenerys. Red unfortunately crashed and recorded a DNF. Moon took up position just aft of Ultra followed by Rugger and Soh. Alexandre held his lead and crossed the finish line first, taking line honors as Jackson crossed the finish line second, with Deanerys a very close third. Ultra crossed the finish line next, followed by Moon, Rugger, and Soh.

*Rule 10 – Right of Way – On Opposite Tacks:
When boats are on opposite tacks, a port-tack boat shall keep clear of a starboard-tack boat.

Gryfin (Gryfin Goldshark) was disqaulified (DSQ) in race two for failing to complete a 360° penalty turn as instructed for failing to keep clear of a starboard-tack boat while on a port-tack (Rule 10).


Moon (moonglownight Resident) and Gryfin (Gryfin Goldshark) both finished tied with 14 points. Rule A8.1 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing is used to break this tie:
