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 was 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.

When boats are on opposite tacks, a port-tack boat shall keep clear of a starboard-tack boat.

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

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.

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.

Bandit Regatta – February 20th 2017

From the left (in Bandit IFs): Jackson. On the dock: Finn, Arwen, Rayz, Cryptic, Red, Carlota, Daenerys, and Petra.

From the left (in Bandit IFs): Jackson.
On the dock: Finn, Arwen, Rayz, Cryptic, Red, Carlota, Daenerys, and Petra.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta saw light winds, a great turnout and some fun racing. The traditionally high North Sea winds died down to a light 11 knots out of the southwest for today’s regatta making for some close fun racing. This weeks fleet was an all IF affair and 11 strong with one lone Bandit 60 appearing in the fleet for the second race. Spectators showed up in large numbers, continuing the trend of packing the Eden Albatros, Eden Puffin, Breadnut, and Ziziphus regions.

The first race, on North Sea Olympic Course (Short), saw the fleet off to a great start as half the fleet was across the start line before 34 seconds ticked off the race clock. Kurt, with Asami, got things started, crossing the start line at 00:00:07. Red was next to cross the start line, at 00:00:14, followed by Jackson, at 00:00:17, Carlota, at 00:00:21, Rayz, at 00:00:27, and Alexandre, at 00:00:34. Noel was next across the start line at 00:00:40, followed by Neil, at 00:00:42, Arwyn, at 00:00:57, Cranston with Blue, at 00:01:25, and Daenerys at 00:01:54. Kurt’s short lead would not last as he crashed crossing into the Carob region, just south of the start line and recorded a DNF. Red took advantage and took the lead, holding on until the Alexandre, who made several moves through the fleet from the middle of the pack started to challenge. Jackson crashed as he neared the first course mark, the blue buoy in the Sapote region, and recorded a DNF. Carlota, who had been just aft of Jackson moved up and neared the front of the pack. Rayz settled in just aft of Carlota, followed by Neil, Noel, Arwyn, Cranston with Blue, and Daenerys. Alexandre overtook Red as they both rounded the third course mark, the white buoy in the Eden Puffin region, taking the lead. Alexandre would hold his lead as he crossed the finish line first, taking line honors. Red crossed the finish line second, a mere 4 seconds after Alexandre. Carlota crossed the finish line in third, 8 seconds after Red, followed by Rayz, Neil, Neol, Arwyn, Cranston with Blue, and Daenerys.

The second race, on the NS-SOL-13C course, saw another great fleet start with the majority crossing the start line before 40 seconds ticked off the race clock. Alexandre got things started, crossing the start line at 00:00:05, followed by Jackson right on his stern, at 00:00:06. Kurt, with Asami, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:12 followed by Rayz, at 00:00:19. Red was next to cross the start line at 00:00:23, followed by Noel, at 00:00:39, Dess, at 00:0:44, Daenerys, at 00:00:53, Neil, at 00:00:54, and Arwyn, at 00:01:37. Cranston, who had switched to his bigger Bandit 60 from his Bandit IF, and who had Blue, Winter and Shaylin along as crew, was next across the start line at 00:02:24. Alexandre took advantage of his nice start and lead the pack through the first leg of the course down to the Ocean Cast Radio island in the Soncoya region. Jackson fell back slightly from his great start behind Alexandre, falling back several positions, as Red, Rayz, and Neil would overtake and pass him. Kurt, with Asami, crashed yet again as he sailed through the Carob region and recorded his second DNF. Noel settled into the middle of the pack as Awryn, who got off to slow start made progress and passed Daenerys. Dess had her own troubles as she crashed going through the Mammea region and recorded a DNF. Cranston, with Blue, Winter, and Shaylin, also crashed as he went through the Mammea region, in his Bandit 60, recording a DNF. As Jackson crossed from from the Muskmelon region into the Nance region, north of the island mark in Soncoya, he hit a lag spike and veered above close hauled almost putting him in irons. Rayz and Red both took advantage and passed Alexandre before rounding Ocean Cast Radio island, in the Soncoya region, for the last leg of the course. Alexandre recovered just as Neil was nipping on his stern. Rayz was now in the lead of the fleet and crossed the finish line first, taking line honors and also his first victory in a North Sea race, well done. Red crossed the finish line second, followed by Alexandre, Neil, Jackson, Noel, Arwyn, and Daenerys.

Today’s winner was Alexandre (ramuf Resident), with Red (RedHeadJO Resident) second, and Rayz (Rayzza Rubble) 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:
The first race was an all IF race so the results for that race are presented in class format.
The second race saw the only off class boat record a DNF, so for simplicity the results for that race are presented in class format as well.


Alexandre (ramuf Resident) and Red (RedHeadJO Resident) both finished tied with 4 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
ramuf Resident 1 3
RedHeadJO Resident 2 2

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Alexandre’s favor with having a first place finish over Red’s second place finish as her best.


Carlota (Carlota Dufaux) and Jackson (Jacquimo Resident) both finished tied with 15 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
Carlota Dufaux 3 12
Jacquimo Resident 5 10

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Carlota’s favor with having a third place finish over Jackson’s fifth place finish as his best.


Daenerys (blondij Resident) and Cranston (Cranston Yordstorm) finished tied with 17 points. 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
blondij Resident 9 8
Cranston Yordstorm 8 9

In the last race, Daenerys breaks the tie with Cranston with her eighth place finish over Cranston’s ninth place finish.

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.
