Pleasant seas and another great spectator turn out greeted this weeks fleet during the North Sea Bandit Regatta. The regions behaved well as no DNFs or crashes were recorded to region issues. Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region, saw a nice turnout of spectators along with the committee boat docks in the Breadnut and Eden Auk regions. This week was our monthly There and Back Again as the fleet raced from the race line in the Breadnut region to the race line in the Eden Auk region and back again. This weeks fleet was comprised of a majority of six Bandit IFs with two bandit 25s making up the remainder.

Today’s winner was Alexandre (ramuf Resident), with Blair (Blair Karas) second, and Moon (moonglownight Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.
Daenerys (blondij Resident) and Riz (RIZLER Rodex) both finished with 14 points. As they finished with the exact same placement in both races, a DNF (Did Not Finish) and DNS (Did Not Start) respectively a piece, neither Rule A8.1 and Rule A8.2 of Guidance on Scoring under Appendix A to the Rules of Sailing is able to break this tie. Daenerys and Riz remain tied in 7th place overall.
