Trudeau Classic Regatta – Aug 24th 2017

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.

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.

On the dock: Cryptic.

This weeks Trudeau Patchogue II class races featured great sim weather with some really spirited racing. The sims behaved themselves well with no DNFs or crashes on the day. We also saw a nice turnout of spectators, as people gathered along the shore in the Eden Albatros region and also along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region, to watch the fleet on both courses. Petra was to direct this race but circumstances out of her control tied her up and I directed the race in her place. We would also like to welcome Ellem to racing in SL as these were her first races as a skipper.

The first race, on the North Sea Breadnut to Eden Auk course, saw the fleet get off to a great start as all 5 boats were across the start line as 26 seconds ticked off the race clock. Ellem started her race career off well, getting the fleet started as she crossed the start line at 00:00:03. Burton was next to cross the start line at 00:00:15, followed by Red, crossing at 00:00:24. Cor and Neil were next across the start line, crossing together at 00:00:26. The fleet stayed tightly packed along the first leg to the first course mark, the green buoy south of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region. Red made her move, after rounding the course mark, and passed Cor, as Neil, Ellem, and Burton followed. Red held onto her small lead as she crossed the finish line, in the Eden Auk region, first, followed by Cor, crossing second. Neil crossed the finish line next, in third, followed by Ellem, crossing in fourth, and Burton, crossing in fifth.

The second race, on the North Sea Eden Auk to Breadnut course, saw the wind change for the fleet, from the 225°(SW) 18 knots of the first race to 135°(SE) 18 knots. This time Cor got things started for the fleet, as he crossed the start line at 00:00:12. Burton was next to cross the start line at 00:00:17, followed by Neil, crossing at 00:00:20, Red, crossing at 00:00:22, and Ellem, crossing at 00:00:53. Cor kept on a starboard tack, heading east and then finally tacking south, in the Eden Albatros sim, while the rest of the fleet tacked to port in the Eden Fulmar region, heading south early. Red lead the fleet that tacked south early, followed by Neil, Ellem, and Burton, who fell back after getting stuck in irons as he tacked. As everyone converged ont he first course mark, the green buoy south of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, Cor and Red met up at the mark, both side by side as the cleared the mark, with Neil right on their stern. Red, Cor, and Neil remained tightly packed as they all approached the second course mark, the pink buoy in the Eden Fulmar region, with Cor coming out slightly ahead after all three rounded the mark. Ellem followed just to the rear with Burton closing in behind her. Ellem’s lead over Burton slipped as Burton passed her on the final leg to the finish line. Cor would hold his slight lead as he crossed the finish line first, followed by Red in second, Neil crossing third, Burton in fourth, and Ellem in fifth.

Trudeau Patch II Class Racing – July 6th 2017

This weeks Trudeau Patchogue II class races saw some nice sim weather with great racing. The sims behaved themselves and we saw no crashes on the day. We also saw a nice turnout of spectators, continuing a trend for all our races in the North Sea, as people gathered along the shore in the Eden Albatros region and also along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region, to watch the fleet on both courses.

Petra was to direct this race but a thunderstorm in her area decided otherwise as her connection would not hold for her. I directed the race in her place. In the rush, I neglected to take a photo for our results post.

This was also Rugger’s first day owning a Trudeau Patchogue II and first race in one. He’s recently been infected with the sailing and racing bug and we are really happy to see him enjoying different boats.

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.

Phil (RC-44), Lucy (RC-44), Moon (RC-44), Laured (AC-45), Cor (RC-44), Rugger (OP-60), and John (OD-65) round the course mark for North Sea Triple Pink course, in the Eden Puffin region, during the North Sea Open Regatta on Wednesday, July 5th, 2017.

This weeks Trudeau Patchogue II class races saw some stable sim weather with great racing. The sims behaved themselves and we only saw one DNF on the day, from Josh’s connection misbehaving during the first race. We also saw a nice turnout of spectators, for what is usually our smaller more intimate races in the North Sea, as people gathered along the shore in the Eden Albatros region and also along the beaches of Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region, to watch the fleet on both courses.

On the dock: J.C. and Petra.

This weeks North Sea Open Regatta saw a nice fleet turn out with decent sim weather. The sims held up well as we only saw two DNFs as a result of crashes. This was also another week continuing the trend of large groups of spectators along the shores of the Eden Albatros region, the Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, the committee boat in the Breadnut region, the shores of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, and Robbins Reef Light in the Eden Godwit and Dragonfruit regions.

The small boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Counter Clock Wise (NS-CCW) course, featured a split majority of three The Mesh Shop (TMS) Flying Shadows and three Shields Class. Two Bandit IFs, a TMS Laser One, a Dolphin Moth, a Quest Melges-24, a Trudeau Patchogue II, and a Trudeau T-12 made up the remainder of the small boat fleet. The fleet got off to an excellent start as nearly everyone, 12 of 13 sailors in all, was on the course side of the start line by the time 28 seconds ticked off the race clock. Luna, in her Shields Class, got things started as she crossed the start line at 00:00:01. I followed right behind Luna, in my Dolphin Moth, at 00:00:02. Lucy, in her Quest Melges-24, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:04. Peter in his TMS Laser One, was across the start line at 00:00:06. Traeumer and Moon, both in Shields CLass, were across the line next, both at 00:00:10. Carlota, in her Trudeau Patchogue II, was across the start line next at 00:00:11 followed by Dess, in her TMS Flying Shadow, at 00:00:12. Sue, in her Trudeau T-12, crossed the start line next at 00:00:20 followed by ViV, in her TMS Flying Shadow, at 00:00:23, and Rayz, in his TMS Flying Shadow, at 00:00:24. Neil, in his Bandit IF, was across the start line next, at 00:00:28. Shadow, in her Bandit IF with Michael, was across the start line next at 00:04:21. I leapt out ahead of the fleet, in my faster Dolphin Moth, immediately after the start line. Luna, in her slightly slower Shields Class, proceeded to fall back into roughly the middle of the fleet to lead the three strong Shields Class pack as Trauemer and Moon, both in Shields Class, fell in right behind her. Lucy, in her Quest Melges-24, crashed as her connection was just not fairing well for her and recorded a DNF. ViV, in her faster TMS Flying Shadow took up position aft of me, while Dess, in her TMS Flying Shadow was just behind her. Peter, in his slightly slower TMS Laser One, settled in bit behind Dess and ViV, as Rayz, in his TMS Flying Shadow, overcame some early troubles to settle in behind Peter. Carlota, in her Trudeau Patchogue II, found herself behind the Shields Class pack of Luna, Traeumer and Moon with Neil, in his Bandit IF, settling in just aft of her. Sue, in her much slower Trudeau T-12, followed along at the rear of the fleet. Shadow, in her Bandit if with Michael, ran into navigation trouble and abandoned the race on the first leg, recording a DNF. I crossed the finish line first, taking line honors, as ViV crossed the finish line second. Dess was next to cross the finish line, third, followed by Peter, Rayz, Luna, Traeumer, Moon, Carlota, Neil, and Sue.

The big boat fleet, racing on the North Sea Outer Inner Loop (NS-OIL Rev1) course, was made up of a majority of three Trudeau 12 Metres. Two Wildwind RC-44s, two TMS Ushuaias, and two TMS One Design 65s made up the remainder of the big boat fleet. The fleet got off the a great start with 7 of the 9 strong fleet on the course side of the start line by the time 30 seconds ticked off the race clock. Dess, in her Wildwind RC-44, and myself, in my TMS Ushuaia, got things started as we both crossed the start line at 00:00:005. ViV, in her TMS One Design 65, was next to cross the start line at 00:00:15 followed by Luna, in her Trudeau 12 Metre, at 00:00:18. Moon, in his Wildwind RC-44, was next across the start line at 00:00:26 followed by Rayz, in his TMS One Design 65, at 00:00:29. Traeumer, in his Wildwind RC-44, crossed the start line next at 00:00:30, followed by Sue, in her Trudeau 12 Metre, at 00:00:38 and Peter, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, at 00:00:43. I fell back, in my slower TMS Ushuaia, as Dess, in her faster Wildwind RC-44, leapt ahead to pace the fleet. ViV, in her TMS One Design 65, had RL grab her and had to abandon the race, recording a DNF. Luna, in her slower Trudeau 12 Metre, also fell back as the faster Wildwind RC-44 of Moon, and the TMS One Design 65 of Rayz passed her. Rayz would continue his moves as he passed Moon to settle in behind Dess. Sue, in her Trudeau 12 Metre, would also pass Luna as I settled in right on Sue’s stern, initially. Peter, in his Trudeau 12 Metre, was stripped from his boat on the crossing from Soncoya into Nance, and crashed, recording a DNF. Traeumer, in his slower TMS Ushuais, settled in at the rear of the fleet. As Sue, in her Trudeau 12 Metre, and I, in my TMS Ushuaia, rounded the course mark in the Dragonfruit region, the pink buoy, Sue pointed to run downwind but I pointed to a broad reach to the next course mark in the Eden Auk region. I had better course speed as I passed Sue and held with Sue on my stern until the finish line. Dess, holding her lead over the pack, crossed the finish line first, recording line honors. Rayz crossed the finish line second, followed by Moon, myself, Sue, Luna, and Traeumer.

Race Notes:
Peter (PeterSailor Resident), Dess (desspaa Resident), and Luna (LunaAzulejo Resident) 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
PeterSailor Resident 2 8
desspaa Resident 3 7
LunaAzulejo Resident 3 7

With the race results rearranged in best to worst finish order, per A8.1, the tie breaks in Peter’s favor with having a second place finish over Dess’s third place finish and Luna’s third place finish as their best.
Dess and Luna still remain tied with their duplicate finishes and 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
desspaa Resident 7 3
LunaAzulejo Resident 3 7

In the last race, Dess breaks the tie with Luna with her third place finish over Luna’s seventh place finish.


Lucy (LucyInTheSky Afarensis) and Shadow (Shadow McConach) both finished tied with 22 points. As they each finished with exact duplicate results for each race, a DNF in the small boats portion and DNS in the big boats portion, neither A8.1 or A8.2 will satisfy breaking their tie and they remain tied with 22 points in twelfth place overall.
