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.

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.

Smooth sim weather and and some fun racing featured in this weeks Trudeau Patch II Class races in the North Sea. We had a nice crowd gathered on the committee boat dock in Breadnut along with some revelers on the beach at Eden Alabtros to watch these fun boats race. The sims themselves behaved well as we had no crashes on the day.

Race 1, on the newly created NS-CCW course (courtesy of Julia), saw the fleet get off to a great start as everyone was across the start line before 22 seconds ticked off the race clock. Petra, with Peachie as crew, got things started as she crossed the start line first at 00:00:03. Peter was next to cross the start line at 00:00:10, followed by Red, at 00:00:12, and Joshua, at 00:00:16. Moon was next across the start line at 00:00:18, followed by myself, with Kaos as crew, at 00:00:21. Red unfortunately had a mis-configured race ID, and didn’t get recorded by the race line, noticing this she moored on the course side of the line and took a DNF. Petra took full advantage of her great start and lead the fleet for the entire course. As these boats do balance slightly better with crew, I was able to make up some lost ground on the rest of the fleet and pass both Peter and Moon, who were racing single handed. Joshua lay before me as we kept up a tight race, changing positions several times. Petra, with Peachie, crossed the finish line first, recording line honors. Joshua and I, with Kaos, would be next, recording a photo finish as I crossed the finish line one second ahead of Joshua. Peter was next to cross the finish line followed by Moon.

Race 2, on the North Sea Trapezoid course, saw another great fleet start as everyone was across the start line before 14 seconds ticked off the race clock. Peter got things started with a nearly perfect 00:00:01 across the start line. Red, now with Carlota as crew, crossed the start line next at 00:00:06. Joshua, now with Gabi as crew, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:10, followed by myself, with Kaos as crew, at 00:00:13. Joshua, with Gabi, and myself, with Kaos, both quickly jumped to the head of the fleet as we both took lines to the windward side of the fleet in clean air. Peter was next, sailing single handed, and Red, with Carlota, was close behind. This order would hold for the rest of the course, as Joshua, with Gabi, crossed the finish line first, recording line honors, as I crossed the line second, with Kaos. Peter was next to cross the finish line followed by Red, with Carlota.

Exciting racing and smooth sailing weather featured in this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. LL threw a curve ball at everyone with their login servers going down for almost four hours earlier in the day, however they righted the servers and we were able to get the North Sea regions all restarted in time before the Regatta. The regions responded well with no crashes or DNFs recorded for the fleet on the day. The smooth sailing weather led to exciting racing that got very competitive during the second race. This weeks fleet was also entirely a Bandit IF affair.

The first race, on the the North Sea Manta course, saw Carlota get things started as she crossed the start line first at 00:00:06. Rulette was next to cross the line at 00:00:17, followed by Rayz at 00:00:25, Neil at 00:00:28, and Jackson at 00:00:33. Carlota would use her start advantage and pace the fleet at the front. Rulette settled in behind Carlota, in second while Rayz fell back as both Neil and Jackson made moves to pass him. Carlota held her lead and crossed the finish line first, claiming line honors. Rulette crossed the finish line second followed by Neil, Jackson, and Rayz.

The second race, on the North Sea Trapezoid course, saw the fleet get off to a great start. Carlota once again crossed the start line first at 00:00:02 with Jackson right on her stern, crossing at 00:00:03. Rulette was hot on their tails as she crossed at 00:00:06, followed by Neil at 00:0:17, and Rayz at 00:00:40. Rulette wound up getting the clean wind line on the course side of the start line and pulled into first. Jackson tacked west early while Carlota followed a similar tack line as Rulette, this placed Jackson in third with Carlota in second. Neil was right behind them in fourth with Rayz, who had almost immediately tacked west after the start line, in fifth. Jackson’s early tack west would pay off as he was able to tack south and maintain a starboard tack and Right of Way across both Carlota and Rulette’s lines as they were on port tacks. Carlota opted to sail astern of Jackson while Rulette tacked south early. Rulette managed to settle into second at this point, behind Jackson, while Carlota was now in third with Neil and Ray trailing. Jackson would maintain his lead until the 4th leg were he tacked south too soon in the Bullace region, heading to the course mark in the Eldeberry region. Rulette and Carlota, in second and third respectively, held their patience and tacked south with better angles to the course mark. As Jackson got to the buoy in the Eldeberry region, the 4th mark on the course, he had very little speed to round the buoy with. Rulette and Carlota both had better speed and passed Jackson as they rounded the mark. Rulette now sat firmly in first with Carlota right on her stern as they both ran to the 5th course mark, the orange buoy in the Sapodilla region. Jackson was now in third with Neil and Rayz trailing just behind him. Rulette would hold her slim lead over Carlota, as she crossed the finish line first to take line honors. Carlota crossed the finish line second, a mere 7 seconds behind Rulette, making for an exciting finish. Jackson was next to cross the finish line in third, followed by Neil and Rayz.

On the dock: Lucy, Josh, Gabi, Helios, Yulia, Wendy, Petra, and Cryptic.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta saw some choppy sim weather along with some close racing. The sims behaved beautifully during the first race however, the Bullace region decided to dump the entire fleet and crash everyone during the second. We again saw a nice turn out of spectators along the coast of the Eden Alabatros region, the beaches along Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, at the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, and at the committee boat dock in the Breadnut region. The fleet this week was another all Bandit IF affair, with six skippers showing, two with crew.

The first race, on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), saw a nice start as the entire fleet crossed the line in less than a minute. Kurt, with Asami, started things off, crossing the start line at 00:00:07. Neil was next, crossing the start line at 00:00:14 with Carlota right on his stern at 00:00:15. Jackson was next to cross the start line at 00:00:34 followed by Ray, with Arwen, at 00:00:43 and Susi at 00:00:52. Kurt would not hold on to his lead for long as Carlota made her move passed Neil and then Kurt to pace the fleet for the remainder of the course. Neil continued to fall back as Ray, with Arwen, and Jackson both would capitalize and pass him. Susi would take up position in the rear of the fleet, but not far from the rest as the entire fleet stayed tightly packed for most of the course. Carlota held onto her lead and crossed the finish line first, taking line honors. Kurt, with Asami, crossed the line second with Ray, with Arwen, Jackson, Niel, and Susi all following.

The second race, on the North Sea Trapezoid course, saw a really quick start with the entire fleet on the course side of the line as 24 seconds ticked on the race timer. Jackson got things started as he crossed the start line first at 00:00:02 followed by Carlota, at 00:00:03, who was windward to Jackson but cleanly crossing the line without making contact with him or pushing him from his proper course. Neil also crossed the line at 00:00:03, but was farther leeward to both Jackson and Carlota. Kurt, with Asami, was next to cross the start line, at 00:00:15, followed by Susi, at 00:00:16, and Ray, with Arwen, at 00:00:24. The fleet stayed tightly packed as Carlota took the lead with Jackson staying right on her stern threatening to overtake and pass her for most of the course. However, the sims turned from smooth to stormy as the Bullace region tossed every sailor in the fleet off line as they entered it. Susi was the only one able to recover her boat, after logging back in, and finished the race in first. The rest of the fleet recorded DNFs.

On the dock: Cryptic, Micahela, and Nenrio.

Excellent sailing weather and some great racing featured in this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The sim weather was excellent as there were no DNFs due to crashes. The only DNF occurred when Cor’s Bandit 50 got stuck on a buoy and stopped responding forcing Cor to delete the boat and re-log. This weeks races were held an hour later to help compensate for the United States lagging one week behind Europe in falling back an hour from daylight savings time. This weeks races also fell on Halloween. Next weeks Bandit Regatta will return to it’s regular time of 1PM SL.

This weeks fleet was made up of a majority of seven Bandit IFs. Two Bandit 60s and a lone Bandit 50 made up the remainder of the fleet.

The first race, on North Sea Olympic Course (Long), got off to a great start as the majority of the fleet got underway in under 30 seconds. Stu, in his bandit IF with Kate, was first to cross the start line at 00:00:05. Neil, in his Bandit IF, was next across at 00:00:11. Crantson, in his Bandit 60, followed next at 00:00:13. Ultra, in his Bandit IF, was next to cross at 00:00:21 with Carlota, in her Bandit IF, right in tow at 00:00:22. Jackson, in his Bandit IF, followed next at 00:00:26 with Cor, in his Bandit 50, right on his stern at 00:00:27. Trey, in his Bandit 60, followed next at 00:00:47, with Rayz, in his Bandit IF, crossing at 00:00:52 and Susi, in her Bandit IF, crossing at 00:01:29. Cor, in his speedy Bandit 50, didn’t waste much time and made several moves through the fleet to take the lead. Stu, in his Bandit IF with Kate, held up strong right behind Cor. Ultra, Carlota, and Jackson, all in their Bandit IFs, wouldn’t stay back idly as they made moves to pass Cranston, in his Bandit 60, placing him in the middle of the fleet. Neil, in his Bandit if, fell off the great pace of his start to settle in behind Cranston. Trey, in his Bandit 60, settled into the rear of the fleet with Rayz, in his Bandit IF, and Susi, in her Bandit IF, just behind him. Cor’s lead held as he crossed the line first, gaining line honors. Stu, with Kate, finished second, not far off of Cor’s pace. Carlota finished next, followed by Ultra, Jackson, Cranston, Neil, Trey, Rayz, and Susi.

The second race, on the North Sea Trapezoid course, got off to just as quick a start as the first, with a majority of the fleet once again crossing about 30 seconds. Stu, in his Bandit IF with Kate, started things off, crossing the start line at 00:00:07. Cor, in his Bandit 50, was next to start at 00:00:20. Jackson, in his Bandit IF, was across next at 00:00:22. Neil, in his Bandit IF, followed next at 00:00:23. Crantson, in his Bandit 60, was across next at 00:00:27 followed by Trey, in his Bandit 60, at 00:00:34. Ultra, in his Bandit IF, followed next at 00:00:41, followed by Rayz, in his Bandit IF, at 00:00:85, and Susi, in her Bandit IF, at 00:03:16. Once again, Cor’s speedy bandit 50 got him out front quick, however he struck and got stuck on a buoy. Cor’s Bandit 50 stopped responding and he ultimately deleted it and re-logged, recording a DNF. This left Jackson at the head of the fleet, in his Bandit IF, until Ultra, in his Bandit IF, made several moves, and took the lead coming from the rear of the fleet. Neil, in his Bandit IF, settled in behind Jackson with Stu, in his Bandit IF with Kate, falling from his great start to stay in tow behind Neil. Cranston, in his Bandit 60, found himself comfortably in the middle of the fleet with Rayz, in his Bandit IF, settling in right behind. Susi, in her Bandit IF, was right behind Rayz, as Trey, in his Bandit 60, fell from the middle of the fleet to the rear. Ultra held on to his lead and crossed the finish first, taking line honors. Jackson was right behind, crossing second. Neil crossed third followed by Stu, with Kate, Cranston, Rayz, Susi, and Trey.
