This weeks Trudeau Patchogue II class races saw smooth sim weather with some really fun racing. The sims behaved well as there were no crashes due to region crossings or lag. We had a nice turnout of spectators to watch this small fun boats surf past with their centerboards up along the shore in the Eden Albatros region and also along the shores of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region.

The first race, on the NS-SOL-13A course, saw a quick start as the entire fleet was across the start line as 33 seconds ticked off the race clock. Arwyn got things started as she crossed the start line first at 00:00:02 followed by myself, at 00:00:06. Red was next to cross the start line at 00:00:14 followed by Carlota, at 00:00:22, and Joshua at 00:00:33. Arwyn’s short lead evaporated along the first leg, to the southern tip of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, as the fleet bunched up and kept things tight. I overtook and passed Arwyn with Joshua right on my stern as Arwyn settled in for a neck and neck battle with Red. Carlota just aft of them as the fleet rounded the island in Genip for the return legs back to the finish. I was able to extend a small lead ahead of Joshua and cross the finish line first, taking line honors as Joshua crossed the finish line second. Red, holding off a strong challenge from Arwyn, crossed the finish line third with Arwyn crossing just 2 seconds after her followed by Carlota.

The second race, on the NS-SOL-13B course, saw an even quicker start as the entire fleet was on the course side of the start line by the time 16 seconds ticked off the race clock. Red got things started this time, crossing the start line at 00:00:02 followed by Arwyn, at 00:00:03, myself at 00:00:09, and Joshua at 00:00:16. Red took advantage of her quick start and held her lead for the entire course. I was just aft of Arwyn until overtaking her on the leg south to the southern tip of Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region. Joshua’s connection did not hold and he crashed, sending his boat and a small cruise south into Fruit Islands and also resulting in a DNF. Red crossed the finish line first, taking line honors as I crossed second followed by Arwyn.

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, 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.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta saw some excellent sim weather with a nice turnout. The sims behaved marvelously as everyone in the fleet finished both races with no crashes or DNFs. We also had another great turnout of spectators to witness some exciting sailing at the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in Eden Puffin, along the shore in Eden Albatros, at the committee boat dock in Breadnut, and on the beaches of Lighthouse Isle in Ziziphus. This weeks fleet was also an all Bandit IF affair, with six boats turning up for the regatta.

The first race, on the NS-SOL-13A course, saw the entire fleet get off to a quick start as everyone was across the start line in 23 seconds. Jackson started things off, crossing the start line at 00:00:04 with Alexandre crossing just a second behind him at 00:00:05. Carlota was next to cross at 00:00:09 with Chris following her at 00:00:20. Stu was next to cross at 00:00:22 with Neil just on his stern at 00:00:23. Jackson’s short lead at the start would not hold as Alexandre and Carlota both overtook him on the first leg along the way to the southern tip of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. As Alexandre and Carlota both rounded the southern tip of Lighthouse Isle, the remainder of the fleet settled in for the rest of the course as Jackson, Chris, Stu, and Neil all followed one by one. Alexandre held his lead until the finish, crossing first and claiming line honors with Carlota crossing just behind him. Jackson was next to finish followed by Chis, Stu, and Neil.

The second race, on the NS-SOL-13B course, saw Jackson once again get off to a great start as he crossed the start line at 00:00:02. Carlota and Stu were next across the start line as they both crossed at 00:00:11. Alexandre followed, crossing the start line at 00:00:21 with Neil crossing just behind him at 00:00:28. Chris was next to cross the start line at 00:01:25. Jackson held his lead going into the first mark, the southern tip of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, while Alexandre overtook Carlota to take up second with Stu, Neil, and Chris not far behind. Jackson’s lead would not hold with Alexandre overtaking him on the third leg from the island in Sloe to Lighthouse Isle in Ziziphus. Alexandre would hold his lead until the finish and also claim line honors once again, with Jackson holding on to cross the finish line in second. Carlota was just on Jackson’s stern as she crossed the finish 4 seconds after him in third. Stu was next to finish followed by Neil and Chris.

This weeks North Sea Thursday Regatta, raced as a Trudeau Patchogue II class race, saw a great turnout. Nine sailors turned out to make an impressive cat boat fleet. The sims were a bit choppy during the first race but smoothed out for the second, as no DNF’s were recorded in that one.

The first race, on the NS-1b course, saw the fleet get off to a great start as half the fleet was across the start line in under 30 seconds. We did have some choppyness in this race as Joshua’s boat stopped responding to input forcing him to record a DNF and Trey and Dess both crashed, causing DNF’s as well.

The second race, on the NS-SOL-13B course, saw much smoother sim weather and another great fleet start. The entire fleet was across the start line in under 40 seconds, considering the Patchogue II’s slower speeds this was quite amazing.

From the laft (in boats): Ray (Bandit IF), Susi (Bandit IF), Cor (Bandit 50), Carlota (Bandit IF), Jackson (Bandit IF), Stu and Kate (Bandit IF).
On the dock: Nenrio, Joshua, Kadja, Tessa, and Cryptic.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta featured a stormy first race but relatively smooth second race along with a great turn out. We had a sim take out 3/4’s of the fleet during the first race, due to a faltering phsyics state in the sim. We restarted that sim and the sims were well behaved for the second race. We also had another larger spectator turnout at the the committee boat dock in Breadnut, The Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in Eden Puffin, along the shore in Eden Alabtros, and the beaches along Lighthouse Isle in Ziziphus. The fleet itself was impressive as we had 11 boats turn up to compete. Eight Bandit IFs made up the majority of the fleet with a Bandit 15, a Bandit 50, and a Bandit 60 filling out the remainder. We would also like to welcome Rayz, who raced in his first races today.

The first race, on the NS-SOL-13A course, got off to a wonderful start as the majority of the fleet was across the line within 30 seconds. Stu started things off, in his Bandit IF, crossing the line first at 00:00:07. Jackson, in his Bandit IF, was next across at 00:00:13. Carlota was next to cross, in her Bandit IF, at 00:00:17, followed by Gail, in her Bandit 25, at 00:00:20. Both Ultra and Alexandre, in their Bandit IFs, following along next at 00:00:28. Cranston, in his Bandit 60 with Shaylin, was next to cross at 00:00:32 followed by Cor, in his Bandit 50, at 00:00:38. Rayz, in his Bandit IF, was along next at 00:01:08 followed by Susi, in her Bandit IF, at 00:01:47 and Neil, in his Bandit IF, at 00:02:05. Things went well for the fleet on the first leg, all the way up to the turn around Petra’s isle in the Genip region. As the fleet rounder Petra’s island and proceeded on the return leg back through the Nance region, physics in the region came to a halt. 8 of 11 in the fleet wound up crashing and being disconnected there, subsequently recording DNFs. Three in the fleet made it through unscathed. Cor, in his Bandit 50 wound up taking line honors, crossing first. Stu, in his Bandit IF, crossed second with Cranston, in his Bandit 60 with Shaylin, crossed a mere 4 seconds later in third.

We recovered the fleet and restarted the Nance region to start the second race, on the NS-SOL-13B course. The fleet once again got off to a great clean and quick start. Alexandre and Jackson, both in their Bandit IFs, crossed first together at 00:00:04. Ultra, in his Bandit IF, was next across at 00:00:06 with Stu, in his Bandit IF, following at 00:00:09. Cranston, in his Bandit IF with Shaylin, was next to cross at 00:00:13. Neil, in his Bandit IF, and Cor, in his Bandit 50, crossed together next at 00:00:21. Gail, in her Bandit 25, followed next at 00:00:25 with new comer Rayz, in his Bandit IF, following at 00:00:44. Gail, in her speedy Bandit 25, did not waste time and moved ahead of 7 in the fleet to take the lead and pace the fleet for the entire course. Alexandre and Jackson, both in their Bandit IF’s, held onto their spots just to Gail’s stern. Ultra was just behind, in his Bandit IF, with Neil, in his Bandit IF, moving ahead of both Cranston, in his Bandit 60 with Shayling, and Stu, in his Bandit IF. Rayz, in his Bandit IF, fell in at the rear of the fleet. Cor, in his Bandit 50, wound up crashing and recording a DNF. Gail took line honos, as her leading pace never faltered and she crossed first. Alexandre crossed the finish line next, followed by Jackson, Ultra, Neil, Cranston with Shaylin, Stu, and Rayz.

Today’s winner was Jackson (Jacquimo Resident), with Alexandre (ramuf Resident) second, and Stu (stuart1524 Resident) in third place. Congratulations to all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to sail and spectate.

Race Note:
Stu (stuart1524 Resident) and Ultra (ultramantra Resident) both finished tied with 7 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
stuart1524 Resident 1 6
ultramantra Resident 3 4

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


Cor (CorSakov Sosa) and Rayz (Rayzza Rubble) both 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
CorSakov Sosa 3 9
Rayzza Rubble 4 8

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


Carlota (Carlota Dufaux) and Susi (Susicat Oh) both finished tied with 14 points. However, as neither A8.1 or A8.2 will break their tie as they both have identical finishes in the same races, a DNF and DNS, they remain tied in 10th place.

This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta was another all Bandit IF affair during some great sim weather. The fleet this week was entirely comprised of Bandit IF’s with 7 strong. The sims held up wonderfully for both races, as well. We would also like to welcome Carlota and Anne both back to racing in The North Sea after a summer break absence.

The first race, on the NS-SOL-13A course, saw Ultra setting up for a great start and crossing at 00:00:06 with Anne showing hardly any rust at all, from her absence, crossing at 00:00:09. Unfortunately, Anne’s connection wouldn’t hold as all the sims around the Breadnut starting region showed red to her and she disconnected on the region crossing, ultimately taking a DNF. Alexandre was next across at 00:00:17 with Carlota right in tow at 00:00:24. Jackson followed at 00:00:44 with Stu, with Becca, crossing at 00:00:56, and Neil, crossing at 00:00:58, in hot pursuit. Ultra’s lead wouldn’t hold however, as he slipped back towards the rear of the fleet with, Alexandre, Carlota, Jackson, and Neil all making moves past him. Alexandre would hold his eventual lead until the end, finishing first with line honors. Carlota was next to finish, with Jackson, Neil, Ultra, and Stu, with Becca, all following.

The second race, on the NS-SOL-13B course, saw another great start with Anne, with even less rust, crossing the line first, at 00:00:04, with her connection holding on for her as she stayed connected. Stu, with Becca, was next across at 00:00:08, with Ultra right in tow, at 00:00:11. Alexandre was next across, at 00:00:015, followed by Carlota at 00:00:23. Jackson followed at 00:00:36, with Neil making it across at 00:00:40. Anne wouldn’t hold her lead, falling back to the rear of the fleet as the rest made moves to pass her. Alexandre once again took the lead and paces the fleet with Carlota right behind him. Ultra would fall in right behind Carlota while Stu, with Becca, was in tow on her stern. Jackson was next with Neil in pursuit. Alexandre’s lead held as she finished first, taking line honors for both races. Carlota was next to finish with, Ultra, Stu with Becca, Jackson, Neil and Anne all following.

From the laft (in Bandit IFs): Stu and Becca, Carlota, Anne, Alexandre, Ultra, Jackson, Susi, and Neil. On the dock: Cryptic, Petra, Tessan, Max, Gabi, Joshua, Katooke, Cat, and Sophie.
