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.

Stormy seas and a great spectator turn out featured in this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The North Sea sims, although restarted 3 hours before racing started still were turbulent as they caused several crashes and DNFs in each race. Spectators turnout this week was great as we had crowds gathered at the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, the committee boat dock in the Breadnut Region, along the shore in the Eden Albatros region, and along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. This weeks races were also an all Bandit IF affair as the entire fleet was IFs.

The first race, on the North Sea Manta course, saw a nice clean start from the fleet. Carlota, with Gabi, got things underway as she crossed the start line at 00:00:03. Jackson was next across the start line at 00:00:06. Neil was across the start line next at 00:00:13 followed by Markz at 00:00:14. Rayz was next to cross the start line at 00:00:18, followed by Noel, at 00:00:31, Alexandre, at 00:01:33, and Arwyn, with Rurua, at 00:01:48. Carlota, with Gabi, took off, pacing the fleet for the entire course. Jackson was right on her stern up to the first mark in the Sapote region, when his boat stopped responding and he abandoned the race, taking a DNF. Neil was settled in just behind them while Markz and Rayz fought neck and neck until both crashed on crossings, also taking DNFs. Noel was just aft of Markz and Ray, as Alexandre was just on his stern but unfortunately also crashed and recorded a DNF. Arwyn, with Rurua, settled in at the rear of the fleet. Carlota, with Gabi, crossed the finish line first, taking line honors, followed by Neil, crossing second. Noel crossed next followed by Arwyn with Rurua.

The second race, a 3 lap jaunt on the North Sea Short Loop course, saw the majority of the fleet off to a quick start as three quarters of the sailors were across the start line before 28 seconds ticked off the race clock. Noel got things started as he crossed the start line at 00:00:02. Rayz and Alexandre were both next to cross the start line at 00:00:06. Carlota, with Gabi, was across the start line next at 00:00:10. Jackson was next to cross the start line at 00:00:22 followed by Neil at 00:00:27, and Arwyn with Rurua at 00:00:30. Elbag was across the start line next at 00:01:18 with Moon right on his stern at 00:01:19. Carlota, with Gabi, and Alexandre both had cleaner windward lines across the start line and passed Noel on the first leg of the course. Noel settled into third in the fleet as Neil, Jackson, and Rayz were neck and neck on his stern. Jackson unfortunately crashed on a crossing and recorded a DNF. Arwyn, with Rurua, Elbag, and Moon also wound up recording DNFs as Arwyn and Moon crashed, and Elbag’s boat stopped responding causing him to abandon the race. Gabi, crewing for Carlota, wound up crashing during the second lap, leaving Carlota single handed as Alexandre overtook her and gained the lead. Alexandre held onto that lead as he crossed the finish line first, taking line honors. Carlota crossed the finish line second, followed by Noel, Neil, and Rayz.

Today’s winner was Carlota (Carlota Dufaux), with Alexandre (ramuf Resident) second, and Neil (eager2discover Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Note:
As this weeks race was all one class for both races, the results are presented in single class format.


Alexandre (ramuf Resident), Neil (eager2discover Resident), and Noel (Noel Oh) all finished tied with 6 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 5
eager2discover Resident 2 4
Noel Oh 3 3

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 Neil’s second place, and Noel’s third place finishes as their best. Subsequently, Neil breaks the tie with Noel with his second place best finish over Noel’s third place best finish.


Arwyn (Arwyn Silverweb) and Rayz (Rayzza Rubble) 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
Arwyn Silverweb 4 6
Rayzza Rubble 5 5

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


Markz (Markz McMahon), Elbag (Elbag Gable), and Moon (moonglownight Resident) all finished tied with 12 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
Markz McMahon 5 7
Elbag Gable 6 6
moonglownight Resident 6 6

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Markz’s favor with having a fifth place finish over Elbag and Moon’s sixth point best finishes. As Elbag and Moon both have duplicate finishes in both races, a DNS and DNF, neither rule A8.1 or A8.2 will break their tie and they remain tied in ninth overall.

Early stormy seas and some fun racing featured in this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. This was the first day of four continuous planned days of maintenance by LL. Although we had restarted all the North Sea estate sims previous to the race, effects of the maintenance seemed to linger as the first race saw some stormy crossings. However, sim weather cleared up for the second race as there were no crashes in the fleet. Racing was still competitive on the day with some fun sailing being showcased in both races. This weeks fleet was also an all Bandit IF affair until the second race, when a Bandit 60 got into the fray.

The first race, on the NS-CCW course, saw the fleet off to a clean nice start. Dess was across the start line first, running nearly perfectly along the green lay line, at 00:00:03. Jackson followed Dess across the start line at 00:00:10. Red was next to cross the start line at 00:00:17. Carlota, with Gabi, was across the start line next, at 00:00:34, followed by Neil, at 00:00:54. Moon was next to cross the start line at 00:01:14. Shadow, with Bob, was next across the start line at 00:05:16 followed by Anna at 00:05:45. Carlota, with Gabi, quickly made headway and passed Dess, Jackson, and Red to lead the fleet. Red was close on their stern, followed by Dess, Jackson, and Neil. Moon passed the first course marker, the blue buoy in the Sapote region, incorrectly and was disqualified for sailing the incorrect course. Shadow, with Bob, had some trouble immediately on the course side of the race line and wound up taking a DNF. Anna, sailing in her first race, trailed along at the rear of the fleet. Stormy seas struck as the fleet approached the fourth course mark, the green buoy south of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, with several crashing as they traversed the Nance region. Carlota, with Gabi, who had a sizeable lead on the rest of the fleet was the first to crash. Dess, Jackson, and Anna would succumb to crashes there, all resulting in DNFs. Red and Neil made it through unscathed as they both raced to the finish on the final two legs of the course. Red picked up a lead at this point and crossed the finish line first, taking line honors with Neil crossing the finish line second.

The second race, on the NS-SOL-13C course, saw smoother sim weather and a Bandit 60 enter the fleet. Dess, in her Bandit IF, once again got things going as she crossed the start line at 00:00:04. Jackson, in his Bandit IF, was following right along, just as in the first race, crossing the start line at 00:00:11. Moon, in his Bandit IF, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:15, followed by Red, at 00:00:20, and Neil, at 00:00:35, both in Bandit IFs. Louise, with Njeri in her Bandit 60, was next to cross the start line at 00:01:29 followed by Anna, in her Bandit IF, at 00:01:33. Jackson, in his Bandit IF, did not let Dess’s lead, in her Bandit IF, last long as he made a move to pass her on the first leg with Red, in her Bandit IF, following in tow right behind him. Neil, in his Bandit IF, also made a move to pass Dess on the first leg, placing Dess in the middle of the pack. Moon, in his Bandit IF, also fell back as he settled in behind Dess. Louise, with Njeri in her Bandit 60, followed up in the rear of the fleet. Anna ran into some trouble with her boat immediately on the course side of the start line, circled back into the pre-start area, and abandoned the race, taking a DNF. Jackson’s lead held as he crossed the finish line first, taking line honors. Red crossed the finish line second followed by Niel, Dess, Moon, and Lousie with Njeri.

This weeks Bandit Regatta, in the North Sea, saw some great sim weather that turned stormy with another great spectator turnout. The sims behaved for the first race, the entire North Sea estate having been restarted three hours previous to race time as is our new procedure. However, the second race saw storms roll in as the Ziziphus region went pear shaped as the entire fleet entered it on it’s second to last leg of the race, forcing several DNFs. We did see a great spectator turnout though, as the usual places saw spectators gather to watch, in the Eden Albatros, Eden Puffin, Breadnut and Ziziphus regions. The weeks fleet was almost entirely a Bandit IF affair until Riv used his Bandit 60 in the second race.

The first race, on the NS-SOL-13A course, saw nice start from the fleet, all racing in Bandit IFs, as every racer was on the course side of the line by the time 30 seconds ticked off the race clock. Macz had an interesting pre-start line as it looked like he was almost going to try a port start across the fleet, heading west. However, Macs tacked to starboard, heading south, as it appeared he did not have enough speed to clear in front of the fleet, all heading south on a starboard tack, without committing a starboard/port Right Of Way foul. As Macz tacked south, before the start line, Jackson crossed the start line first, into the course side of the line, at 00:00:04. Carlota was next to cross the start line, 00:00:09. Macz, having completed his tack and now moving south, crossed the start line at 00:00:10. Neil was next to cross the start line at 00:00:19 followed by Red and Rayz both at 00:00:29. Macz wasted little time after his mid-fleet start, taking a tight line on the first upwind before tacking as he put himself in first ahead of Carlota and Jackson. Red wasted little time as she passed Rayz on the second beat upwind. Neil unfortunately crashed and record a DNF. This order held as Carlota nipped at Macz stern for the rest of the course before Macs crossed the finish line first, taking line honors followed, by Carlota crossing second. Jackson crossed the finish line third followed by Red and Rayz.

The second race, on the NS-SOL-13B, started of well with a majority of the fleet enter the course side of the start line as 45 seconds ticked off the race clock. Macz, in his Bandit IF, got things started as he crossed the start line first at 00:00:5. Carlota, in her bandit IF, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:09, followed by Red, in her Bandit IF, at 00:00:14. Neil, in his Bandit IF, was next across the start line at 00:00:20. Jackson and Rayz, both in their Bandit IFs, were next across the start line at 00:00:26 and 00:00:27 respectively. Riv, in his Bandit 60, was across the start line next, at 00:00:45. Gryfin, sailing his Bandit IF, was a late show to the races, as he had just come from a race in the Blake Sea and wound up getting into the course at 00:09:57. The fleet quickly made their way around Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region, the first mark of the course, as it is a island mark course. Macz was in the lead with Carlota once again nipping at his stern, followed by Jackson, Red, Rayz, Neil, and Riv. The fleet traveled east and circled clockwise around Hay Ah’s island in the Sloe region, the second mark of the course. As the fleet traveled back west to Lighthouse Isle again, the third mark of the course, trouble struck as everything went pear shaped in the Ziziphus region the moment the fleet entered it. Jackson made it through unscathed, as Macs, Carlota, Red, Neil, Rayz, and Riv all crashed upon crossing into Zizphus. Macz was able to make it back to his boat when he logged back in, and continue racing. Carlota, Red, Rayz, Riv, and Neil would record DNFs. Gryfin, having started so late sailed through Ziziphus unscathed on both legs through. Jackson took advantage of his fortune and crossed the finish line first, taking line honors. Macz crossed the finish line second with Gryfin crossing third.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta, featuring our monthly There and Back Again set of courses, saw a nice turnout with another large spectator turnout. The sims behaved for the first race, however turned a bit choppy during the second as they claimed three in the fleet with crashes causing DNFs. The spectators continue to turnout out in large numbers along the beach in the Eden Albatros region. Plus more were on Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, gathered atop the lighthouse that is the name sake of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, and also at the committee boat in the Breadnut region. This week’s fleet was another all Bandit IF affair with seven sailors racing.

The first race, on the North Sea Breadnut to Eden Auk course which is the There portion of the series, saw a great fleet start with a wind out of the southwest (225°) at 18 kts. Dess got things going, crossing the start line at 00:00:03 with Kurt was right on her stern, crossing the start line at 00:00:04, with Jackson following right behind at 00:00:08. Carlota was next to cross the start line, at 00:00:19, followed by Neil, at 00:00:25, Margo, at 00:00:34, and Moon, at 00:00:53. Dess’s short lead at the front of the pack, from a great start did not last long, however as Jackson, Carlota, Neil, Kurt, and Margo all tacked to a better line west to the first mark, the green buoy south of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, placing Dess behind them. Jackson would charge ahead and maintain his lead to the finish line in Eden Auk, claiming line honors. Carlota would cross the finish line second, followed by Neil, Kurt, Margo, Dess, and Moon.

The second race, on the North Sea Eden Auk course which is the Back Again leg of the series, saw the wind flip to 135° (SE) still blowing at 18kts. Carlota got things started this time, as she crossed the start line first at 00:00:16. Dess, still showing some a great pre-start routine, crossed next at 00:00:33. Moon was right behind her, crossing at 00:00:39, followed by Neil, at 00:00:41, Margo, at 00:00:59, Jackson, at 00:01:00, and finally Kurt, at 00:01:22. Jackson, although next to last across the start line, took the port tack line alone down to the Nance region then tacking east to the first mark, the green buoy south of Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region. The rest of the fleet took the starboard tack line out of the race line to the Eden Albatros region where they tacked south to the Ziziphus region. The southern tack to the Ziziphus region by the rest of the fleet is where the trouble started as several crashed crossing the region border from the Mammea region into the Ziziphus region. Dess, Moon, and Kurt would all not recover here, subsequently recording DNFs. Carlota and Margo were able to get back to their boats and continue on. Neil went through unscathed and slipped into second behind Jackson, who’s alternate line placed him in the lead. Jackson’s lead would hold as he crossed the finish line first, taking line honors. Neil crossed the finish line second, followed by Carlota, and Margo.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta, the last for 2016, saw a nice turnout with some smooth sim weather. The sims behaved well for everyone as we now restart the entire North Sea estate regions three hours before race time, helping settle any hiccups incurred from the weekends. Spectators also made another good showing today along the usual places in Eden Albatros, Eden Puffin, Ziziphus, and in Breadnut, cheering our racers on as they sailed past. This weeks fleet was an entirely IF affair, which made for some exciting racing as the fleet kept relatively tight packed throughout both courses.
