From the left (in boats): Ultra (Bandit IF), Cor (Bandit IF), Jackson (Bandit IF), and Daphne with Maddy (Bandit 60).
On the dock: Penny, Cryptic, Arwen, Ellem, Gryfin, Daenerys, Rugger, and Breobol.

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 were 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.

*Rule 10 – Right of Way – On Opposite Tacks:
When boats are on opposite tacks, a port-tack boat shall keep clear of a starboard-tack boat.

Slightly stormy sims that cleared up late featured in this weeks North Sea Open Regatta. The sims were a bit choppy for the small boats race, claiming four to DNFs in the small boat race, but the weather cleared for big boats with no DNFs as a result. Crowds of spectators continued the trend of great turn outs in the North Sea for races, as the Eden Puffin, Eden Albatros, and Ziziphus sims were packed with people watching. We also saw a great turnout of racers with 15 boats in the small boat fleet and 12 boats in the big boat fleet.

The small boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Triple Pink course, was made up of a majority of six Bandit IFs. Five TMS Flying Shadows, with one crewed, a Dolphin Moth, a Bandit 25, a TMS Nacra 17, and a Shields Class rounded out the remainder of the small boat fleet. The fleet saw a fast start as 13 of the 15 racers were across the start line as 28 seconds ticked off the race clock. Daenerys, in her TMS Flying Shadow with Minna as crew, got things started as she crossed the start line at 00:00:01 followed right behind by myself, on my Dolphin Moth, at 00:00:02. Alexandre was right on my stern, in his Bandit IF, crossing the start line at 00:00:03, followed by Ultra, in his Bandit IF, crossing the start line at 00:00:04. Lucy, in her Shields Class, was across the start line next at 00:00:06. Red, in her Bandit IF, and Beane, in her TMS Flying Shadow, both crossed the start line next at 00:00:08. Alice, in her Bandit IF, was across the start line next at 00:00:14, followed by Moon, in his TMS Nacra 17, crossing at 00:00:15. Viv, in her TMS Flying Shadow, crossed the start line next at 00:00:22, followed by Neil, in his Bandit IF, crossing at 00:00:25. Shau, in her Bandit 25, and Rugger, in his Bandit IF, were both across the start line next at 00:00:28. Palani, in his TMS Flying Shadow, was across the start line next at 00:00:39, followed by Laured, in her TMS Flying Shadow, crossing at 00:00:53. I quickly leapt out to the lead of the fleet, in my quicker Dolphin Moth, as Daenerys, in her TMS Flying Shadow with Minna, settled in behind me. Viv, in her TMS Flying Shadow, made moves up through the fleet to nip at Daenerys’s stern. Moon, in his TMS Nacra 17, also made moves through the fleet to settle in just behind Viv as Laured, in her TMS Flying Shadow, worked her way into position behind Moon. Shau, in her Bandit 25, settled in at the center of the fleet as Palani, in his TMS Flying Shadow, followed closely behind her. Alexandre, in his Bandit IF, lead the IF pack in the fleet, with Neil, Red, and Ultra, all in Bandit IFs, following closely behind. Lucy, in her Shields Class, Beane, in her TMS Flying Shadow, Alice and Rugger, both in Bandit IFs, all succumbed to crashes and unfortunately recorded DNFs. I held on to the pack lead and crossed the finish line first, followed by Daenerys, with Minna, crossing the finish line in second. Viv crossed the finish line next followed by Moon, Laured, Shau, Palani, Alexandre, Neil, Red, and Ultra.

The big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Copacabana course, was made up of a majority of six TMS One Design 65s. Two Wildwind Open 60s, two TMS Ushuaias, and two Quest IACCs made up the remainder of the big boat fleet. The big boat fleet saw just as fast a start as the small boat fleet, with 9 of the 12 racers crossing the start line as 28 seconds ticked off the race clock. Beane, in her TMS One Design 65, got things started as she crossed the start line at 00:00:03. Lucy, in her Quest IACC, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:05, followed by Kayo, in her One Design 65, crossing at 00:00:06. Rugger, in his Wildwind Open 60, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:07. I along with Laured, both in TMS One Design 65s, crossed the line together next at 00:00:11, followed by Viv, in her TMS One Design 65, at 00:00:20. Gryfin, in his Wildwind Open 60, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:22, followed by Moon, in his Quest IACC, crossing at 00:00:28. Palani, in his TMS One Design 65, crossed the start line next 00:00:36, followed by Ultra, in his TMS Ushuaia, crossing at 00:00:37, and Neil, in his TMS Ushuaia, crossing at 00:00:39. Beane, in her TMS One Design 65, took advantage of her great start, leading the fleet for the duration of the course. Viv, in her TMS One Design 65, made moves through the fleet to settle in behind Beane, as I, in my own TMS One Design 65, followed behind Viv. Kayo, in her TMS One Design 65, settled in next in the fleet, followed by Gryfin, in his Wildwind Open 60. Laured, in her TMS One Design 65, took up position in the middle of the fleet. Lucy, in her Quest IACC, fell slightly from her quick start to settle in behind Laured. Palani, in his TMS One Design 65, took up position behind Lucy, followed by Moon, in his Quest IACC, and Rugger, in his Wildwind Open 60. Neil, in his slowed TMS Ushuaia, took up position towards the rear of the fleet followed by Ultra, in his TMS Ushuaia. Beane, holding onto her lead, crossed the finish line first, followed by Viv, crossing second. I crossed the finish line next followed by Kayo, Gryfin, Laured, Lucy, Palani, Moon, Rugger, Neil, and Ultra.

Race Notes:
Shau (ShauIa Resident) and Laured (laured Cabassoun) both finished tied with 16 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
ShauIa Resident 4 12
laured Cabassoun 7 9

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Shau’s favor with having a fourth place finish over Laured’s seventh place finish as her best.


Lucy (LucyInTheSky Afarensis) and Alice (alice8200 Resident) both tied with 24 points. As they both have identical finishes in both races, neither Rule A8.1 or Rule A8.2 will satisfy breaking their tie, therefore they remain tied in fifteenth place.

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta saw some really nice sailing weather and a nice turn out for both fleets. The sims behaved as we only had one DNF registered in each race. Sailor turn out was nice as well, as the small boat fleet saw thirteen racers and the big boat fleet saw eight. Spectators flocked to the usual spots along the shore of the Eden Albatros region, on the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, along the shores of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, and on the committee boat dock itself in the Breadnut region.

The small boat fleet, racing on the NS-CCW course, was comprised of a majority of seven Bandit IFs. The remainder of the small boat fleet was made up of two TMS Flying Shadows, two TMS Nacra 17s, a Quest Melges-24, and a Trudeau Leetle Cat II. The race set off to a fast start as eleven of the thirteen in the fleet crossed the start line as 29 seconds ticked off the race clock. Lucy, in her Quest Melges-24, was the first across the start line at 00:00:01. Alice and Jackson, both in Bandit IFs, were both right on her stern, crossing together at 00:00:02. Beane, in her TMS Flying Shadow, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:08. Red, in her Bandit IF, was across the start line next at 00:00:18 followed by Bianca, in her TMS Nacra 17, crossing at 00:00:20. Moon, in his TMS Nacra 17, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:23, with Viv, in her TMS Flying Shadow, and Ultra, in his Bandit IF, both on her stern, crossing at 00:00:24. Neil, in his Bandit IF, was next across the start line at 00:00:27, followed by Lampoon, in his Trudeau Leetle Cat II, at 00:00:29. Mixorroxim, in her Bandit IF, was across the start line next at 00:01:01 followed by Rugger, in his Bandit IF, crossing at 00:01:49. Lucy, in her Quest Melges-24, took advantage of her great start and paced the fleet for the entirety of the race. Alice and Jackson, both in slower Bandit IFs, fell back slightly as the ViV and Beane, in their faster TMS Flying Shadows, passed them to settle in behind Lucy. Red, in her Bandit IF, passed Jackson to settle in behind Alice. Bianca, in her TMS Nacra 17, unfortunately had connection issues, crashed recorded a DNF. Moon, in his Nacra 17, fell back behind both Ultra and Neil, in their Bandit IFs. Lampoon, in his Trudeau Leetle Cat II, settled in at the rear of the fleet with Mixorroxim and Rugger, both in Bandit IFs, just behind him. Lucy held her lead and crossed the finish line first, recording line honors. Beane crossed the finish line second, followed by ViV, Alice, Red, Jackson, Neil, Ultra, Moon, Lampoon, Mixorroxim, and Rugger.

The big boat fleet, racing on the recently created North Sea Triple Pink course, was comprised of a majority of four Wildwind RC-44s. The remainder of the big boat fleet was made up of a Wildwind AC-45, a Wildwind Open 60, a TMS One Design 65, and a TMS Ushuaia. The big boat fleet got off to a great start as every sailor was across the start line as 32 seconds ticked off the race clock. Phil and Moon, both in Wildwind RC-44s, and Rugger, in a Wildwind Open 60, crossed the start line first together at 00:00:04. Lucy, in her Wildwid RC-44, was next to cross the line at 00:00:07. Cor, in his Wildwind RC-44, was across the start line next at 00:00:09. John, in his TMS One Design 65, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:14. Laured, in her Wildwind AC-45, was across the start line next at 00:00:16 followed by Neil, in his TMS Ushuaia, crossing at 00:00:32. The quick start by Phil, Moon, and Rugger did not dampen the competition they faced on the course, as several lead changes happened in the front pack of Phil (RC-44), Moon (RC-44), Rugger (OP-60), Lucy (RC-44), Cor (Rc-44) and Laured (AC-45). Laured, in her Wildwind AC-45, wound up taking the lead on the final leg of the course only to crash as she neared the finish line, resulting in a DNF. Phil, in his Wildwind RC-44, held onto his position and wound up settling in just to Laured’s stern. Lucy, in her Wildwind RC-44, was right on Phil’s stern, battling the whole way. Rugger, in his Wildwind Open 60, fell back several positions, as Cor, in his Wildwind RC-44, took advantage and passed Rugger to settle in just behind Lucy. John, in his TMS One Design 65, also took advantage and made a move to pass Rugger, in his Wildwind RC-44, on the final leg. Neil, in his slower TMS Ushuaia, settled in at the rear of the fleet. Phil crossed the finish line first, taking line honors, with Lucy crossing the finish line second, right on his stern. Moon crossed the finish line third, followed by Cor, John, Rugger and Niel.
