Smooth seas with light winds building to heavier winds featured in this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. This was our monthly ‘There and Back Again’ series of races between both race lines in the North Sea, in the Breadnut and Eden Auk regions. The sims behaved themselves excellently as no DNFs to crashes were recorded. The wind started out fairly light for the first race but picked up for the second race. This weeks fleet featured a majority of eleven Bandit IFs with one lone Bandit 25. We also had a nice turnout of spectators in the usual spots in the Eden Albatros, Eden Puffin, Ziziphus, and Breadnut regions. We would also like to congratulate Shriurra, who raced in her first two races in her new Bandit IF.

The first race, on the Breadnut to Eden Auk course, saw the fleet entirely made up of Bandit IFs. The wind was light at 11 knots and out of the southwest. The fleet got off to a paced start as half of the racers were over the start line as 35 seconds ticked off the race clock. Jackson got things started as he crossed the start line first at 00:00:06. Alice followed suit, crossing the start line at 00:00:09 followed by Alexandre at 00:00:19. Ultra was next to cross the start line at 00:00:23. Red was across the start line next at 00:00:34 with Neil right on her stern, crossing at 00:00:35. Rugger was next to cross the start line at 00:00:59, followed by Daenerys at 00:01:03, Elbag at 00:01:08, Moon at 00:01:15, and Shriurra, racing in her first race, at 00:02:16. Jackson took advantage of his great start and held onto the pack lead for the duration of the course. Alice was right behind Jackson, on his stern the entire course. Alexandre and Ultra had a great battle as they raced neck and neck with Ultra ultimately coming out ahead. Red was just behind with Neil just aft of her the whole course. Daenerys settled in next with Moon behind her. Rugger fell back in the fleet, settling behind Moon. Shriurra took up the rear of the fleet. Elbag was right on the stern Deanerys and Rugger on the first leg, but RL grabbed him, causing him to abandon the race and record a DNF. Jackson crossed the finish line first, taking line honors. Alice crossed the finish line second followed by Ultra, Alexandre, Red, Neil, Daenerys, Moon, Rugger, and Shriurra.

The second race, on the Eden Auk to Breadnut course, saw the inclusion of the lone Bandit 25 in the fleet. The wind picked up at 18 knots and changed direction, coming from the southeast. The fleet got off to a slightly slower start with half the fleet across the line as 52 seconds ticked off the race clock. Ultra got things started, as he crossed the start line at 00:00:!2. Moon was next to cross the start line at 00:00:21 followed by Daenerys at 00:00:30. Alexandre was across the start line next 00:00:35 followed by Bianca, in the lone Bandit 25, crossing at 00:00:49. Gryfin was next to cross the start line at 00:00:52 followed by Jackson at 00:00:55, Neil at 00:00:57, Alice at 00:01:00, Red at 00:01:16, Rugger at 00:01:19, and Shriurra at 00:01:22. Ultra held onto his great for a majority of the course but could not hold off Alexandre who made several moves through the fleet to overtake the lead. Moon fell back settling into the middle of the fleet from his great start. Daenerys also fell back in the fleet, settling in just aft of Alice and Moon. Bianca, in the lone Bandit 25, saw her WiFi connection drop and ultimately recorded a DNF. Gryfin slid back into the fleet, settling in behind Daenerys. Jackson and Neil were in a nice position battle as they both made moves to gain in the fleet. Neil came out slightly ahead as both settled in right behind Red, towards the front of the fleet. Alice picked up two spots from her starting position as she battled Moon throughout the race. Rugger and Shriurra both took up positions at the rear of the fleet. Alexandre was across the finish line in first, taking line honors. Ultra crossed the finish line second, followed by Red, Neil, Jackson, Moon, Alice, Daenerys, Gryfin, Rugger, and Shriurra.

Trudeau Patch II Class Racing – July 6th 2017

This weeks Trudeau Patchogue II class races saw some nice sim weather with great racing. The sims behaved themselves and we saw no crashes on the day. We also saw a nice turnout of spectators, continuing a trend for all our races in the North Sea, as people gathered along the shore in the Eden Albatros region and also along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region, to watch the fleet on both courses.

Petra was to direct this race but a thunderstorm in her area decided otherwise as her connection would not hold for her. I directed the race in her place. In the rush, I neglected to take a photo for our results post.

This was also Rugger’s first day owning a Trudeau Patchogue II and first race in one. He’s recently been infected with the sailing and racing bug and we are really happy to see him enjoying different boats.

On the dock: sohaiden, Penny, Daenerys, Petra, and Cryptic.

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta saw some really nice sailing weather and a nice turn out for both fleets. The sims behaved as we only had one DNF registered in each race. Sailor turn out was nice as well, as the small boat fleet saw thirteen racers and the big boat fleet saw eight. Spectators flocked to the usual spots along the shore of the Eden Albatros region, on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, along the shores of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, and on the committee boat dock itself in the Breadnut region.

The small boat fleet, racing on the NS-CCW course, was comprised of a majority of seven Bandit IFs. The remainder of the small boat fleet was made up of two TMS Flying Shadows, two TMS Nacra 17s, a Quest Melges-24, and a Trudeau Leetle Cat II. The race set off to a fast start as eleven of the thirteen in the fleet crossed the start line as 29 seconds ticked off the race clock. Lucy, in her Quest Melges-24, was the first across the start line at 00:00:01. Alice and Jackson, both in Bandit IFs, were both right on her stern, crossing together at 00:00:02. Beane, in her TMS Flying Shadow, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:08. Red, in her Bandit IF, was across the start line next at 00:00:18 followed by Bianca, in her TMS Nacra 17, crossing at 00:00:20. Moon, in his TMS Nacra 17, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:23, with Viv, in her TMS Flying Shadow, and Ultra, in his Bandit IF, both on her stern, crossing at 00:00:24. Neil, in his Bandit IF, was next across the start line at 00:00:27, followed by Lampoon, in his Trudeau Leetle Cat II, at 00:00:29. Mixorroxim, in her Bandit IF, was across the start line next at 00:01:01 followed by Rugger, in his Bandit IF, crossing at 00:01:49. Lucy, in her Quest Melges-24, took advantage of her great start and paced the fleet for the entirety of the race. Alice and Jackson, both in slower Bandit IFs, fell back slightly as the ViV and Beane, in their faster TMS Flying Shadows, passed them to settle in behind Lucy. Red, in her Bandit IF, passed Jackson to settle in behind Alice. Bianca, in her TMS Nacra 17, unfortunately had connection issues, crashed recorded a DNF. Moon, in his Nacra 17, fell back behind both Ultra and Neil, in their Bandit IFs. Lampoon, in his Trudeau Leetle Cat II, settled in at the rear of the fleet with Mixorroxim and Rugger, both in Bandit IFs, just behind him. Lucy held her lead and crossed the finish line first, recording line honors. Beane crossed the finish line second, followed by ViV, Alice, Red, Jackson, Neil, Ultra, Moon, Lampoon, Mixorroxim, and Rugger.

The big boat fleet, racing on the recently created North Sea Triple Pink course, was comprised of a majority of four Wildwind RC-44s. The remainder of the big boat fleet was made up of a Wildwind AC-45, a Wildwind Open 60, a TMS One Design 65, and a TMS Ushuaia. The big boat fleet got off to a great start as every sailor was across the start line as 32 seconds ticked off the race clock. Phil and Moon, both in Wildwind RC-44s, and Rugger, in a Wildwind Open 60, crossed the start line first together at 00:00:04. Lucy, in her Wildwid RC-44, was next to cross the line at 00:00:07. Cor, in his Wildwind RC-44, was across the start line next at 00:00:09. John, in his TMS One Design 65, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:14. Laured, in her Wildwind AC-45, was across the start line next at 00:00:16 followed by Neil, in his TMS Ushuaia, crossing at 00:00:32. The quick start by Phil, Moon, and Rugger did not dampen the competition they faced on the course, as several lead changes happened in the front pack of Phil (RC-44), Moon (RC-44), Rugger (OP-60), Lucy (RC-44), Cor (Rc-44) and Laured (AC-45). Laured, in her Wildwind AC-45, wound up taking the lead on the final leg of the course only to crash as she neared the finish line, resulting in a DNF. Phil, in his Wildwind RC-44, held onto his position and wound up settling in just to Laured’s stern. Lucy, in her Wildwind RC-44, was right on Phil’s stern, battling the whole way. Rugger, in his Wildwind Open 60, fell back several positions, as Cor, in his Wildwind RC-44, took advantage and passed Rugger to settle in just behind Lucy. John, in his TMS One Design 65, also took advantage and made a move to pass Rugger, in his Wildwind RC-44, on the final leg. Neil, in his slower TMS Ushuaia, settled in at the rear of the fleet. Phil crossed the finish line first, taking line honors, with Lucy crossing the finish line second, right on his stern. Moon crossed the finish line third, followed by Cor, John, Rugger and Niel.

On the dock: Nenrio, Penny, Petra, and Cryptic.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta saw a great turnout of racers and spectators with smooth sims that turned a little choppy late. The sims behaved well for the first race, as only one DNF due to a crash was recorded. However, the sims turned a little choppy during the second race as two of the three DNFs recorded were due to crashes. This weeks fleet was made up of a majority of 13 Bandit IFs with one lone Bandit 25. Spectators lined the usual spots in the Eden Albatros, Eden Puffin, Breadnut, and Ziziphus regions.

The first race, on the recently created North Sea Bowline course, saw the fleet off to an excellent start as 11 of the 14 racers were across the start line by the time 33 seconds ticked off the race clock. Daenerys was off to a perfect start as she crossed the start line at 00:00:00. Jackson was right behind Daenerys, crossing the line at 00:00:02, with Alice right on his stern at 00:00:03. Alexandre was next across the start line at 00:00:04 followed by Neil at 00:00:07. Ultra was across the start line next at 00:00:10 followed by Bianca, in the lone Bandit 25, at 00:00:16. Kayo, with Laured as crew, was next across the start line at 00:00:18 followed by Red at 00:00:24. Macz was next to cross the start line at 00:00:28, followed by Rugger at 00:00:33. Mixorroxim was across the start line next at 00:01:47, followed by Baz, at 00:02:09, and Moon, at 00:03:42. Daenerys’s start was not enough to hold off Alexandre as he slipped up through the fleet, passing Alice and Jackson as they both slipped back in the fleet. Bianca, in her faster Bandit 25, made moves through the fleet, after an initial barging call that saw her do a 360° penalty turn, to pace the fleet from the front. Macz and Red would also both make moves up through the fleet as Red settled in right behind Daenerys, and Macz took up behind Jackson. Ultra and Kayo, with Laured as crew, settled in at the middle of the fleet. Moon, a late arrival and starter, took up ahead of the rear pack of Rugger, mixorroxim, and Baz. Neil unfortunately crashed and recorded a DNF. Bianca held her lead and crossed the finish line first, followed by Alexandre, as the first Bandit IF to cross the finish line. Daenerys was next to cross the finish line followed by Red, Jackson, Macz, Alice, Ultra, Kayo with Laured, Moon, Rugger, mixorroxim, and Baz.

The second race, on the North Sea Trapezoid course, saw the fleet on a more paced start as half the fleet was across the start line by the time 30 seconds ticked off the race clock. Daenerys was once got things started as she crossed the start line at 00:00:05. Alice was next to cross the start line at 00:00:11 followed by Bianca, on the lone Bandit 25, at 00:00:12. Kayo, with Laured as crew, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:14 followed by Moon at 00:00:20. Jackson was across the start line next at 00:00:24 with Macs right behind at 00:00:30. Ultra was next to cross the start line at 00:00:36 followed by Neil at 00:00:43. Rugger was across the start line next at 00:00:52, followed by mixorroxim, at 00:01:29, Alexandre, at 00:01:30, and Red, at 00:01:55. Daenerys seized her great start to maintain her pace of the Bandit IFs as Bianca, in her faster Bandit 25, lept to the front of the fleet with a sizeable lead. Alice fell back to settle into the middle of the fleet as Kayo, with Laured as crew, took up position right behind Daenerys. Macz made moves to pass Jackson and Moon, settling in behind Kayo. Alexandre also made moves, coming from the rear of the starting pack to take up position behind Macz. Red settled in just behind Alice, with Neil and Moon right behind her. Ultra, Rugger, and mixorroxim all unfortunately recorded DNFs. Bianca held her sizable lead and crossed the finish line first, followed by Daenerys. Kayo, with Laured as crew, was next to cross the finish line followed by Macz, Alexandre, Jackson, Alice, Red, Neil, and Moon.

This weeks Trudeau Patchogue II class races saw some stable sim weather with great racing. The sims behaved themselves and we only saw one DNF on the day, from Josh’s connection misbehaving during the first race. We also saw a nice turnout of spectators, for what is usually our smaller more intimate races in the North Sea, as people gathered along the shore in the Eden Albatros region and also along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region, to watch the fleet on both courses.

On the dock: J.C. and Petra.

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta saw a nice fleet turn out with decent sim weather. The sims held up well as we only saw two DNFs as a result of crashes. This was also another week continuing the trend of large groups of spectators along the shores of the Eden Albatros region, the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, the committee boat in the Breadnut region, the shores of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, and Robbins Reef Light in the Eden Godwit and Dragonfruit regions.

The small boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Counter Clock Wise (NS-CCW) course, featured a split majority of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows and three Shields Class. Two Bandit IFs, a TMS Laser One, a Dolphin Moth, a Quest Melges-24, a Trudeau Patchogue II, and a Trudeau T-12 made up the remainder of the small boat fleet. The fleet got off to an excellent start as nearly everyone, 12 of 13 sailors in all, was on the course side of the start line by the time 28 seconds ticked off the race clock. Luna, in her Shields Class, got things started as she crossed the start line at 00:00:01. I followed right behind Luna, in my Dolphin Moth, at 00:00:02. Lucy, in her Quest Melges-24, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:04. Peter in his TMS Laser One, was across the start line at 00:00:06. Traeumer and Moon, both in Shields CLass, were across the line next, both at 00:00:10. Carlota, in her Trudeau Patchogue II, was across the start line next at 00:00:11 followed by Dess, in her TMS Flying Shadow, at 00:00:12. Sue, in her Trudeau T-12, crossed the start line next at 00:00:20 followed by ViV, in her TMS Flying Shadow, at 00:00:23, and Rayz, in his TMS Flying Shadow, at 00:00:24. Neil, in his Bandit IF, was across the start line next, at 00:00:28. Shadow, in her Bandit IF with Michael, was across the start line next at 00:04:21. I leapt out ahead of the fleet, in my faster Dolphin Moth, immediately after the start line. Luna, in her slightly slower Shields Class, proceeded to fall back into roughly the middle of the fleet to lead the three strong Shields Class pack as Trauemer and Moon, both in Shields Class, fell in right behind her. Lucy, in her Quest Melges-24, crashed as her connection was just not fairing well for her and recorded a DNF. ViV, in her faster TMS Flying Shadow took up position aft of me, while Dess, in her TMS Flying Shadow was just behind her. Peter, in his slightly slower TMS Laser One, settled in bit behind Dess and ViV, as Rayz, in his TMS Flying Shadow, overcame some early troubles to settle in behind Peter. Carlota, in her Trudeau Patchogue II, found herself behind the Shields Class pack of Luna, Traeumer and Moon with Neil, in his Bandit IF, settling in just aft of her. Sue, in her much slower Trudeau T-12, followed along at the rear of the fleet. Shadow, in her Bandit if with Michael, ran into navigation trouble and abandoned the race on the first leg, recording a DNF. I crossed the finish line first, taking line honors, as ViV crossed the finish line second. Dess was next to cross the finish line, third, followed by Peter, Rayz, Luna, Traeumer, Moon, Carlota, Neil, and Sue.

The big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Outer Inner Loop (NS-OIL Rev1) course, was made up of a majority of three Trudeau 12 Metres. Two Wildwind RC-44s, two TMS Ushuaias, and two TMS One Design 65s made up the remainder of the big boat fleet. The fleet got off the a great start with 7 of the 9 strong fleet on the course side of the start line by the time 30 seconds ticked off the race clock. Dess, in her Wildwind RC-44, and myself, in my TMS Ushuaia, got things started as we both crossed the start line at 00:00:005. ViV, in her TMS One Design 65, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:15 followed by Luna, in her Trudeau 12 Metre, at 00:00:18. Moon, in his Wildwind RC-44, was next across the start line at 00:00:26 followed by Rayz, in his TMS One Design 65, at 00:00:29. Traeumer, in his Wildwind RC-44, crossed the start line next at 00:00:30, followed by Sue, in her Trudeau 12 Metre, at 00:00:38 and Peter, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, at 00:00:43. I fell back, in my slower TMS Ushuaia, as Dess, in her faster Wildwind RC-44, leapt ahead to pace the fleet. ViV, in her TMS One Design 65, had RL grab her and had to abandon the race, recording a DNF. Luna, in her slower Trudeau 12 Metre, also fell back as the faster Wildwind RC-44 of Moon, and the TMS One Design 65 of Rayz passed her. Rayz would continue his moves as he passed Moon to settle in behind Dess. Sue, in her Trudeau 12 Metre, would also pass Luna as I settled in right on Sue’s stern, initially. Peter, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, was stripped from his boat on the crossing from Soncoya into Nance, and crashed, recording a DNF. Traeumer, in his slower TMS Ushuais, settled in at the rear of the fleet. As Sue, in her Trudeau 12 Metre, and I, in my TMS Ushuaia, rounded the course mark in the Dragonfruit region, the pink buoy, Sue pointed to run downwind but I pointed to a broad reach to the next course mark in the Eden Auk region. I had better course speed as I passed Sue and held with Sue on my stern until the finish line. Dess, holding her lead over the pack, crossed the finish line first, recording line honors. Rayz crossed the finish line second, followed by Moon, myself, Sue, Luna, and Traeumer.

Today’s winner was Cryptic (Cryptic Resident), with Traeumer (traeumer66 Resident) second, and Peter (PeterSailor Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Notes:
Peter (PeterSailor Resident), Dess (desspaa Resident), and Luna (LunaAzulejo Resident) 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
PeterSailor Resident 2 8
desspaa Resident 3 7
LunaAzulejo Resident 3 7

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Peter’s favor with having a second place finish over Dess’s third place finish and Luna’s third place finish as their best.
Dess and Luna still remain tied with their duplicate finishes and 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
desspaa Resident 7 3
LunaAzulejo Resident 3 7

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


Lucy (LucyInTheSky Afarensis) and Shadow (Shadow McConach) both finished tied with 22 points. As they each finished with exact duplicate results for each race, a DNF in the small boats portion and DNS in the big boats portion, neither A8.1 or A8.2 will satisfy breaking their tie and they remain tied with 22 points in twelfth place overall.
