Smooth sim weather, a large spectator turn out, and exciting sailing featured in this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The sims behaved extremely well as no DNFs were recorded due to crashes in either race. Spectator turn out was also great as viewers flocked to the shore in the Eden Albatros region and along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. The sailing itself was exciting as things got bumpy in race two but everyone recovered well. This weeks fleet was again comprised of a majority of ten Bandit IFs with one lone Bandit 25. We would also like to welcome Soh, who was racing in his first set of races in the North Sea.

The first race, on the NS-SOL-13A course, saw the racers off to a speedy start as six of the nine boats in the fleet were over the start line as 28 seconds ticked off the race clock. Jackson got things started, crossing the start line at 00:00:03. Bianca, in the lone Bandit 25, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:07. Ultra followed along next across the start line at 00:00:18. Neil was next to cross the start line at 00:00:22 followed by Red at 00:00:24 and Daenerys at 00:00:28. Soh was next across the start line at 00:00:54 followed by Alexandre at 00:01:00 and Rugger at 00:01:07. Bianca, in her quicker Bandit 25, sped to the lead in the fleet with Red making moves through the fleet and settling in behind Bianca. Daenerys followed along on Red’s stern to also move up through the fleet. Alexandre made some of his own moves to pass through to fleet, settling in right behind Daenerys. Neil took up position in the middle of the fleet with Jackson, who fell off his great start, settling in behind Neil. Ultra took up position towards the rear of the fleet, falling back from his quick start, followed by Rugger and Soh. Bianca held her lead and crossed the finish line first, taking line honors as Red crossed the finish line second behind her. Daenerys was next to cross the finish line followed by Alexandre, Neil, Jackson, Ultra, Rugger, and Soh.

The second race, on the NS-SOL-13B course, saw the fleet off to another quick but albeit somewhat bumpy start as nine of the eleven boat fleet were across the start line as 30 seconds ticked off the race clock. Soh got things started crossing the start line at 00:00:01 followed by Ultra on his stern, crossing at 00:00:04. Bianca, once again in the lone Bandit 25, crossed the start line next at 00:00:6 followed by Red, right on her stern, at 00:00:07. Bianca immediately tacked to port after crossing the start line and started a chain reaction colliding with Red which subsequently delayed Daenerys, Jackson, and Alexandre as they crossed the start line and tried to avoid colliding with Red and Bianca. Bianca was charged with a rule 13* foul and completed a 360° penalty when she was clear of fleet traffic. Daenerys crossed the start line finally at 00:00:13 followed by Jackson at 00:00:15, and Alexandre at 00:00:17. Julia crossed the start line next at 00:00:27, followed by Moon at 00:00:30, Neil at 00:00:55, and Rugger at 00:00:57. Alexandre, Jackson, and Daenerys all recovered well from the bumpy start, as Alexandre made his way to the front of the fleet, passing Ultra who settled in behind Alxandre. Jackson moved up through the fleet, settling in behind Ultra, as Daenerys nipped at his stern. Neil made moves of his own through the fleet and took up position behind Daenerys. Julia settled in just aft of Neil as Moon took up position near the rear of the fleet followed by Soh, who fell off his great start, and then Rugger. Red, after battling to recover from the bumpy start, ultimately abandoned the race and recorded a DNF. Bianca, after completing her penalty turn, tried to continue the race but her connection dropped resulting in her recording a DNF. Alexandre held on to his lead and crossed the finish line first, taking line honors. Ultra crossed the finish line second followed by Jackson, Daenerys, Neil, Julia, Moon, Soh, and Rugger.

* Rule 13: WHILE TACKING
After a boat passes head to wind, she shall keep clear of other boats until she is on a close-hauled course. During that time rules 10, 11 and 12 do not apply. If two boats are subject to this rule at the same time, the one on the other’s port side or the one astern shall keep clear. Source: The Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-2020

Today’s winner was Alexandre (ramuf Resident), with Daenerys (blondij Resident) second, and Ultra (ultramantra Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate and the SLCG for helping with race duties.

Race Notes:
Ultra (ultramantra Resident), Jackson (Jacquimo Resident), and Neil (eager2discover Resident) all finished tied with 9 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
ultramantra Resident 2 7
Jacquimo Resident 3 6
eager2discover Resident 4 5

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


Moon (moonglownight Resident), Soh (sohaidan Resident), and Ruger (ruggeromare Resident) all finished tied with 17 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
moonglownight Resident 7 10
sohaidan Resident 8 9
ruggeromare Resident 8 9

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Moon’s favor with having a seventh place finish over Soh’s and Rugger’s eighth place finishes as there best. Soh and Rugger remain tied and as they both have duplicate finishes, 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
sohaidan Resident 9 8
ruggeromare Resident 8 9

In the last race, Soh breaks the tie with Rugger with his eighth place finish over Rugger’s ninth place finish.

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 North Sea Bandit Regatta saw smooth sim weather with high winds early that calmed down later. The sims behaved marvelously today as we had no crashes. The Bullace region has been given a clean bill of health after LL gave it some TLC on Friday. This was also our monthly There and Back Again series, featuring both race lines located in The North Sea. The wind was a bit high for the first race, at 21kts but died down for the second race, at 15kts. We had a nice turn out of spectators along the shores of Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region, the shores in the Eden Albatros region, and at the Robbins Reef Lighthouse in the Eden Auk region. This weeks fleet was made up of a majority of seven Bandit IFs with one Bandit 25.

The first race, the There portion on the North Sea Breadnut to Eden Auk course, saw the fleet off to a great start in high winds of 21kts out of the southwest (225°). Jackson, in his Bandit IF, got things started as he crossed the start line at 00:00:02. Carlota, in her Bandit IF, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:12, followed by Red, in her Bandit IF, at 00:00:23. Arwyn, in her Bandit 25, was across the start line next at 00:00:29, followed by Noel, in his Bandit IF, at 00:00:30 and Neil, in his Bandit IF, at 00:00:39. Moon, in his Bandit IF, was next to cross the start line at 00:00::45 with Bonni, in her Bandit IF, crossing at 00:01:04. Arwyn, in her much faster Bandit 25, jumped out ahead of the fleet before the first mark, the green buoy south of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. Jackson squeaked his way past Carlota, both in Bandit IFs, to settle into second in the fleet. Red, in her Bandit IF, settles in just aft of Carlota with Noel, in his Bandit IF, right on her stern. Neil, in his Bandit IF, was just to their rear as Moon, in his Bandit IF, was at the rear of the fleet. Bonni had to abandon the race, due to a RL commitment, and received a DNF. Arwyn increased her lead and crossed the finish line first, as Jackson crossed shortly after, in second. Carlota crossed the finish line next, followed by Red, Noel, Neil, and Moon.

The second race, the and Back Again portion on the North Sea Eden Auk to Breadnut course, saw the winds die down a bit to 15kts as they shifted direction out of the southeast (135°). Jackson, in his Bandit IF, once again got things started, crossing the start line at 00:00:04. Carlota, in her Bandit IF, was right on his stern, crossing the start line at 00:00:05. Neil, in his Bandit IF, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:13 followed by Red, in her Bandit IF, at 00:00:20. Arwyn, in her Bandit 25, was across the start line next at 00:00:30 followed by Noel, in his Bandit IF, at 00:00:41 and Moon, in his Bandit IF, at 00:01:11. Once again, Arwyn, in her much faster Bandit 25, dashed into the lead. Jackson, in his Bandit IF, was vying for position with Carlota, in her Bandit IF, when he took an ill timed tack to the south and got himself stuck in irons. Carlota took advantage and passed Jackson, as Neil, in his Bandit IF, and Red, in her Bandit IF, did as well. Noel, in his Bandit IF, and Moon, in his Bandit IF, brought up the rear of the fleet. Carlota, Neil and Red, all in their Bandit IFs, engaged in a mini-battle as they all were neck and neck heading to the second course mark, the pink buoy in the Eden Fulmar region. Red pulled off a slick inside turn around the buoy, passing Carlota and Neil, who had both come into the mark zone a bit high. Carlota slipped in just lee of Red, as Neil fell back just aft of them. Carlota and Red would continue to stay neck and neck until the third course mark, the blue buoy in the Sapote region, when Carlota finally got an edge and lead ahead of Red. Arwyn crossed the finish line first, however she missed rounding the blue buoy in the Sapote region correctly and was disqualified. Carlota crossed the finish line next followed by Red, Neil, Noel, Jackson, and Moon.

A stormy sea and some great racing featured in this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. A storm rolled in during the first race as the Bullace region took out three quarters of the fleet as it was on the final leg, however a restart fixed the issue and the second race saw some great sim weather. The racing itself was exciting as several sailors made nice moves to pass and we even saw something of a drag race along the reach between Soncoya and Eden Fulmer in the second race. Spectators also made a good showing today along the usual places in Eden Albatros, Eden Puffin, Ziziphus, and in Breadnut. This weeks fleet was almost entirely a Bandit IF affair again, with the exception of one lone Bandit 25.

The first race, on the North Sea Manta course, saw an exciting start as Alexandre, Jackson and Carlota, all in Bandit IFs, lined up almost three abreast at one point in the pre-start area while heading to the start line only to narrowly space out and cross at 00:00:04, 00:00:07, and 00:00:09. Kurt, with Asami as crew, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:14, in his Bandit IF, followed by Neil, in his own Bandit IF, at 00:00:18. Ray, with Arwen as crew, crossed the start line next, in his Bandit IF, at 00:00:33 followed by Margo, in her Bandit IF, at 00:00:43, and Susi, in her Bandit IF, at 00:00:45. Shadow, in her Bandit 25, was next to cross the start line at 00:01:25 followed by Riv, with Ran as crew, in his Bandit IF, at 00:01:29. Things progressed well for the fleet as Alexandre and Jackson stayed tightly together fighting for the lead with Kurt and Asami, Ray and Arwen, Neil, Margo, and Susi following behind. Carlota wound up having trouble in the first sim after the start line, the Carob region, and wound up taking a DNF. Riv, with Ran in his Bandit IF, wound up passing Shadow, in her Bandit 25, as she got stuck in irons at the first mark in the Sapote region. As the fleet progressed to the final leg of North Sea Manta, through the Bullace region, tragedy struck as the sim itself crashed most who entered. Only Alexandre, Neil, and Shadow survived to make it to the finish line, finishing in that order. The rest of the fleet recorded DNFs.

The second race, on the North Sea Copacabana course, got off to a great start after the Bullace region was restarted to make for smooth sailing for the fleet. Kurt, with Asami, got things started, in his Bandit IF, as he headed for the start line with Jackson, and Alexandre, in their Bandit IFs as well, all once again lining up three abreast to cross the line at 00:00:02, 00:00:04, and 00:00:06. Carlota, in her Bandit IF, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:09 followed by Neil, in his Bandit IF, who was right on her stern. Susi, in her Bandit IF, was across the start line next at 00:00:18 followed by Ray, with Arwen, in his Bandit IF, at 00:00:23. Margo, in her Bandit IF, was next to cross the start line at 00:0:31 followed by Shadow, in her Bandit 25, at 00:02:56. The fleet spread out once on the course side of the line as everyone picked their own lines to the first mark in the Soncoya region. Carlota, once again had trouble with her boat and wound up with another DNF as she did not make it past the first leg. Shadow had troubles as well on the first leg and wound up recording a DNF. The rest of the fleet met at the first mark, in the Soncoya region, and promptly made the reach to Eden Fulmer a drag race as Kurt, with Asami, and Alexandre, both in Bandit IFs, were side by side for most of that leg. Alexandre was leeward however and wound up sneaking through Kurt’s wind shadow to be first into the mark zone and the lead. The rest of the fleet, in Bandit IFs, fell in behind Alexandre and Kurt, with Jackson, Margo, Neil, Ray with Arwen, and Susi all following. Alexandre held his lead until the finish, crossing first and taking line honors as Kurt, with Asami, crossed the finish line second. Jackson was next to cross the finish line, followed by Margo, Neil, Ray with Arwen, and Susi.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta featured a stormy first race but relatively smooth second race along with a great turn out. We had a sim take out 3/4’s of the fleet during the first race, due to a faltering phsyics state in the sim. We restarted that sim and the sims were well behaved for the second race. We also had another larger spectator turnout at the the committee boat dock in Breadnut, The Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in Eden Puffin, along the shore in Eden Alabtros, and the beaches along Lighthouse Isle in Ziziphus. The fleet itself was impressive as we had 11 boats turn up to compete. Eight Bandit IFs made up the majority of the fleet with a Bandit 15, a Bandit 50, and a Bandit 60 filling out the remainder. We would also like to welcome Rayz, who raced in his first races today.

The first race, on the NS-SOL-13A course, got off to a wonderful start as the majority of the fleet was across the line within 30 seconds. Stu started things off, in his Bandit IF, crossing the line first at 00:00:07. Jackson, in his Bandit IF, was next across at 00:00:13. Carlota was next to cross, in her Bandit IF, at 00:00:17, followed by Gail, in her Bandit 25, at 00:00:20. Both Ultra and Alexandre, in their Bandit IFs, following along next at 00:00:28. Cranston, in his Bandit 60 with Shaylin, was next to cross at 00:00:32 followed by Cor, in his Bandit 50, at 00:00:38. Rayz, in his Bandit IF, was along next at 00:01:08 followed by Susi, in her Bandit IF, at 00:01:47 and Neil, in his Bandit IF, at 00:02:05. Things went well for the fleet on the first leg, all the way up to the turn around Petra’s isle in the Genip region. As the fleet rounder Petra’s island and proceeded on the return leg back through the Nance region, physics in the region came to a halt. 8 of 11 in the fleet wound up crashing and being disconnected there, subsequently recording DNFs. Three in the fleet made it through unscathed. Cor, in his Bandit 50 wound up taking line honors, crossing first. Stu, in his Bandit IF, crossed second with Cranston, in his Bandit 60 with Shaylin, crossed a mere 4 seconds later in third.

We recovered the fleet and restarted the Nance region to start the second race, on the NS-SOL-13B course. The fleet once again got off to a great clean and quick start. Alexandre and Jackson, both in their Bandit IFs, crossed first together at 00:00:04. Ultra, in his Bandit IF, was next across at 00:00:06 with Stu, in his Bandit IF, following at 00:00:09. Cranston, in his Bandit IF with Shaylin, was next to cross at 00:00:13. Neil, in his Bandit IF, and Cor, in his Bandit 50, crossed together next at 00:00:21. Gail, in her Bandit 25, followed next at 00:00:25 with new comer Rayz, in his Bandit IF, following at 00:00:44. Gail, in her speedy Bandit 25, did not waste time and moved ahead of 7 in the fleet to take the lead and pace the fleet for the entire course. Alexandre and Jackson, both in their Bandit IF’s, held onto their spots just to Gail’s stern. Ultra was just behind, in his Bandit IF, with Neil, in his Bandit IF, moving ahead of both Cranston, in his Bandit 60 with Shayling, and Stu, in his Bandit IF. Rayz, in his Bandit IF, fell in at the rear of the fleet. Cor, in his Bandit 50, wound up crashing and recording a DNF. Gail took line honos, as her leading pace never faltered and she crossed first. Alexandre crossed the finish line next, followed by Jackson, Ultra, Neil, Cranston with Shaylin, Stu, and Rayz.
