On the dock: Arwen.
On the committee boat: Cryptic.

A smaller fleet with some close racing featured in this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. We had a fleet of seven boats in both races, made up of six Bandit IFs and one Bandit 25. Spectators still packed along the beaches in the Eden Albatros region, Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, and on the race dock in the Eden Puffin region. Jackson, Moon, and Daenerys made things exciting among the Bandit IF pack as they changed positions among each other numerous times in both races. The sims behaved well as there was only DNF (Did Not Finish) in each race due to crashing. Danie wound up getting grabbed by RL during the first race and recording the other DNF.

Race Director: Cryptic
Wind: SW (225°) 18kts

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta started off with some smooth seas but turned bumpy at the end. The sims played nice for the first race with only just 2 DNFs (Did Not Finish) recorded, however they turned bumpy during the second race as the Sapote region devoured most of the fleet with 9 DNFs recorded. Spectators continued the great trend of large turnouts as the dock in Eden Puffin was once again crowded for both races. This weeks fleet was made up of a split majority of six Bandit 25s and six Bandit IFs.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta was met with extremely stormy sim weather. Both of the regatta races were abandoned due to a sustained DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service attack) on LL’s servers. The first race started off well enough, on North Sea Olympic Course (Long). As the fleet leaders, Blair and Rayz in their Bandit 25s, rounded the green buoy in the Ziziphus region on the last leg of the race, Linden labs login servers crashed resulting in the entire fleet, and most of the logged in users to the SL grid, to get disconnected. Users could not log back in to SL again for another 40 minutes. Once we were able to log back in, we made the decision to abandon both races as time had run out.

The outages would reoccur three more times through the rest of the day on the 26th and once again on the 27th. Linden Labs posted on their forums with more information about the attack Unscheduled DDoS.

Race Notes:
Both races were abandoned do to Linden Labs servers crashing from a sustained DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service attack).

This weeks Trudeau Patchogue II Class Races turned into the Trudeau Classic Regatta as we raced the new Trudeau Runa IV along side the Patchogue II. Spectators turned out in large numbers to watch the new gaff rigged yawl put through her paces along the shores of Eden, gathering at Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus Region, the beaches in the Eden Albatros region, and the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region. The sims themselves started out slightly choppy, as three DNFs were attributed to crashes during the first race. The sim weather settled down, however, as smooth seas were prevalent during the second race. The fleet today was comprised of six Patchgoue IIs and six Runa IVs for the first race, with Kayo switching from her Runa IV to her Patchogue II in the second race.

From the left (in Trudeau boats): Cryptic (Runa IV), Rosie (Patchogue II), Laured (Patchogue II), Sophie (Patchogue II), Kristaly (Runa IV), Cor (Runa IV), Kayo (Runa IV), and Ultra (Runa IV). On the dock: Josh, Roama, Penny, Analyse, and Petra.

From the left (in Trudeau boats): Cryptic (Runa IV), Rosie (Patchogue II), Laured (Patchogue II), Sophie (Patchogue II), Kristaly (Runa IV), Cor (Runa IV), Kayo (Runa IV), and Ultra (Runa IV).
On the dock: Josh, Roama, Penny, Analyse, and Petra.

The first race, on the North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was used as the handicapping race for the Runa IV. The data gleaned from today resulted in the Runa IV receiving a handicap of 0.57 (All North Sea handicaps can be seen here North Sea Handicap Table). The fleet got off to a moderate start as some sailors were still getting used to their new Runa IVs and the Patchogue pack navigated among the larger yachts not usually present during this race. I got things started as I got my Runa IV across the start line at 00:00:13. Rosie, in her Patchogue II, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:22, followed by Ultra, in his Runa IV, at 00:00:34. Rugger, in his Patchogue II, was across the start line next at 00:00:34, followed by Neil, in his Patchogue II, at 00:00:42. Kayo, in her Runa IV, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:42, followed by Cor, in his Runa IV, at 00:00:54. Laured, in her Patchogue II, was across the start line next at 00:00:54, followed by Moon, in his Patchogue II, at 00:01:06, and Sophie, in her Patchogue II, at 00:01:09. Looralie and Kristaly, both in Runa IVs, were next to cross the start line at 00:01:16 and 00:01:39. I was in clean air as I got across the start line first and closest to the committee boat, in my Runa IV, and sprinted on, leading the fleet for the entire course. Rosie, in her Patchogue II, benefited from crossing right after me as she was in clean air herself and settled in behind me before the swifter upwind Runa IVs of Cor and Kristaly caught up and passed her. Ultra, in his Runa IV, fell back slightly in the fleet as Neil, in his Patchogue II, and Looralie, in her Runa IV, both made moves to pass him. Laured, in her Patchogue II, settled in just aft of Ultra with Rugger, in his Patchogue II, taken up the rear of the fleet. Kayo, in her Runa IV, Moon, in his Patchogue II, and Sophie, in her Patchogue II, all succumbed to crashes and recorded DNFs. I was first across the finish line, taking line honors, with Cor crossing the finish second. Kristaly crossed the finish line third, followed by Rosie, Neil, Looralie, Ultra, Laured, and Rugger.

The second race, on the North Sea Circle course, saw the fleet getting more comfortable with the Runa IVs. The fleet got off to a quicker start than they did in the first race with 9 of the 12 racers across the start line as 26 seconds ticked off the race clock. Kayo, now in her Patchogue II after using her Runa IV in the first race, got things started as she crossed the start line at 00:00:02. Laured, in her Patchogue II, and myself, in my Runa IV, were both next to cross the start line at 00:00:03. Kristaly, in her Runa IV, was across the start line next at 00:00:08 followed by Neil, in his Patchogue II, at 00:00:11. Rugger, in his Patchogue II, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:15, with Sophie, in her Patchogue II, right on his stern at 00:00:16. Moon, in his Patchogue II, was across the start line next at 00:00:23, followed by Cor, in his Runa IV, at 00:00:26. Rosie, in her Patchogue II, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:40, followed by Ultra, in his Runa IV, at 00:00:58, and Looralie in her Runa IV, at 00:01:10. Kayo, in her Patchogue II, and I, in my Runa IV, both crossed the start line closest to the committee boat on the windward side of the line putting us in clean air. However, Kayo wound up in my wind shadow as I was windward of her causing her to fall back as I took the lead. Kristaly, in her Runa IV, crossed the start line on the far leeward side, and was in clean air herself, taking up second as we both sprinted upwind towards the first tack to head west to the radio station island in the Soncoya region. Laured, in her Patchogue II, and Neil, in his Patchogue II, both fought closely as they settled in behind Kayo. Rugger, in his Patchogue II, got stuck in the wind shadow of several Runa IVs and fell back to the rear of the fleet. Sophie and Moon, both in Patchogue IIs, suffered the same fate as they settled in just ahead of Rugger, after having fallen back, with Moon leading Sophie. Cor, in his Runa IV, made moves to pass several as he ultimately settled in just aft of Kayo. Rosie, in her Patchogue II, was locked in a position battle with Ultra, in his Runa IV, for most of the course, with Ultra ultimately passing her. Kristaly, in her Runa IV, and myself, in my Runa IV, were locked in a battle for the entire course as Kristaly was right on my stern with her bowsprit nearly touching my boomkin on several occasions as we rounded the island marks on the course. I held on to squeak out a small lead and crossed the finish line first, taking line honors, as Kristaly crossed the finish line second. Kayo crossed the finish line third followed by Cor, Neil, Laured, Looralie, Ultra, Rosie, Moon, Sohpie, and Rugger.

Photo courtesy of Win.

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta featured a new course from Julia (juliasalzano Resident) and another great spectator turnout. The sims themselves behaved well with only one DNF recorded in each race. Spectators were abundant at the committee boat dock, in the Breadnut region, as well as along the beach in the Eden Albatros region, on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, and along the shores of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region.

The small boat fleet, racing on the newly created NS-CCW course courtesy of Julia (juliasalzano Resident) and with a USB card created by Win (win.enfield), was comprised of a split majority of four Shields Class and four Bandit IFs. A Dolphin Moth, a Quest Melges-24, a TMS Flying Shadow, and a TMS Laser One made up the remainder of the small boat fleet. The fleet got off to a great start as a majority were across the start line as 31 seconds ticked on the race clock. Lucy, in her Melges-24, was across first at 00:00:02. Carlota, in her Bandit IF, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:07. Peter, in his Laser One, was across the start line next, at 00:00:12, followed by myself, in my Dolphin Moth, at 00:00:13. Macz, in his Bandit IF, was next to cross the start line 00:00:15 followed by Dess, in her Flying Shadow, at 00:00:19. Moon, in his Shields Class, and Gryfin, in his Bandit IF, were both across the start line next at 00:00:31. Neil, in his Bandit IF, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:33 followed by Lampoon, in his Shields Class, at 00:00:39. Traeumer, in his Shields Class was next across the start line, at 00:00:47, followed by Ellion, in her Shields Class, at 00:01:44. I quickly sped to the front of the fleet, in my much quicker Moth, as Lucy, in her Melges-24, settled into second. Dess, in her Flying Shadow, was right on her Lucy’s stern for most of the course. Peter, in his Laser One, fell in right behind them. Traeumer and Moon, both in Shields Class, made some moves to pass the slightly slower Bandit IFs in the fleet to fall in behind Peter. Carlota, in her Bandit IF, fell back from her great start time as Macsz, also in a Bandit IF, made a move to pass her. Lampoon and Ellion, both in Shields Class, were towards the rear of the fleet with Neil, in his Bandit IF, following up in the rear. Unfortunately Gryfin, in his Bandit IF, crashed and recorded a DNF. I held the lead at the front of the pack, however I rounded the 5th course mark counterclockwise instead of clockwise and followed the string back to the mark to round it correctly (commonly referred to as “the string rule” or Rule 28.2*), losing valuable time in the process yet still crossing the finish line first. Lucy was the next to cross the finish line, in second. Dess was next to cross the finish line followed by Peter, Traeumer, Moon, Macz, Carlota, Lampoon, Ellion, and Neil.

The big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Olympic Course (Long), was comprised of a majority of four Wildwind RC-44s. A Trudeau 12 Metre, a TMS Ushuaia, and a Wildwind Open 60 made up the remainder of the big boat fleet. The entire fleet got off to a great start as everyone was across the start line as 13 seconds ticked off the race clock. Peter, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, was across the line first at a perfect 00:00:00. I was across the line next, in my TMS Ushuaia, at 00:00:02 with Lucy, in her Wildwind RC-44r, right on my stern crossing the line at 00:00:03. Moon, in his Wildwind RC-44r, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:08 followed by Traeumer, also in a Wildwind RC-44r, at 00:00:09. Dess, in her Wildwind RC-44r, was across the start line next, at 00:00:12, followed by Gryfin, in his Wildwind Open 60, at 00:00:13. Dess, in her RC-44, jumped to the head of the fleet, followed by Gryfin, in his Open 60, Traeumer and Moon, both also in RC-44s. Lucy was racing with the incorrect USB course loaded and abandoned the race on the first leg, recording a DNF. Peter, in his 12 Metre, fell in just behind the quicker Wildwind boats, with myself, in my slower Ushuaia, just behind Peter. Dess held her lead till the finish, crossing the finish line with line honors. Gryfin was across the finish line second followed by Traeumer, Moon, Peter, and then myself.

*Rule 28.2 quoted from 2017-2020 World Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing

A string representing a boat’s track from the time she begins to approach the starting line from its pre-start side to start until she finishes shall, when drawn taut,
(a) pass each mark on the required side and in the correct order,
(b) touch each rounding mark, and
(c) pass between the marks of a gate from the direction of the
previous mark.
She may correct any errors to comply with this rule, provided she has not finished.

You will find this rule pretty much word for word in almost every yacht clubs rule set.

This week, the North Sea Open Regatta became the Trudeau Handicap Regatta as we held our third event for the Eden Trudeau Regatta Week. We had a fantastic turnout of Trudeau Classic Yachts in the fleet along with spectators gathering around the usual spots in the North Sea and Eden. We once again restarted all the North Sea estate sims 3 hours before the race to great results, as sailing was smooth with no crashes due to sim performance or crossings. We had large of spectators show up in Eden Albatros, Eden Puffin, Breadnut, and Ziziphus to view the classic yacht composed fleet.

This weeks special fleet, racing three races on North Sea Olympic Course (long), was comprised of a majority of four Patchouge IIs. Two Francois Jacques, two Trudeau Ones, two 12 Metres, and one Leetle Cat II made up the remainder of the fleet. The fleet along with the Trudeau collection, rezzed by Eden and North Sea estate owner Elbag Gable in the Eden Puffin region, created a truly elegant classic flair for the day.
