Good racing in the North Sea. Conditions were accommodating and other boat traffic was minimal, so we had fun racing. Well done to Josh for winning both races.

Josh DSQ in the 1st race, for ROW infringement on Alex just before the finish (no penalty taken). Josh was on a Port tack and Alex on a Starboard tack with a line to the finish line (image below taken one second after the colission). Josh had no line and should have gybed before crossing in front of Alex and forcing a collision.

Well done to all. A pity Gail crashed out in both races. Nice to see Joy come sail. A pity she crashed too in the second race. Not sure what happened to her as she left. See you all soon.

Well done to all sailors. Fun racing and good sim conditions. This boat is very low lag, so it doesn’t cause any problems itself. We just need to to wind-shadow to be a little more exciting. We’re asking Cory to add that. Feel free to add your vote for that feature.

 

Wild Wind RC-44 Match Racing

803c09d556d544768a181b87d0bcc0f8

We decided to experiment a little with some Match Racing. I mentions this to Hawk in passing a,d he got all excited as he does, so we pulled out the buoys, rings and rule-book and had a go.

We were using the new Wild Wind RC-44R boat that works quite well under these conditions.

We set up the start line thus:

8f491a11bdd70e37f5b5637e0c30396e

With 2 red circles from which the 2 boats started. We used a short 3 min countdown to save time, so from -00:03:00 to -00:02:00 the boats circled and moved up tp the On Course Side (OCS), but not into the OCS H. Then at -00:02:00 the boats went into the OCS H and down into the Pre-Start Side (PSS) part of the H, this before -00:01:00.

The idea of the Match racing is to force a foul our of your opponent. Do this by making break on of the rules or going over the line early.

Then a race around a small and simple course, up to a windward buoy and down to two leeward buoys that the skippers could choose.

The wind was SW (225°) 15 kts; with 10° variation and up to 3 kt gusts.

We ran two sets of 3 heats because we had 6 skippers.

In the future, we’ll work out a points system and means to sail against all other boats.
