Race Day 8 with Bandit 25R at TrYC

Yesterday was what i call a normal day, somewhere between the Thursday desaster and a perfect race. Candy, Lucy, Nicole, Dahlia and Yvonne joined me for this race.

The start went for all very well (as you can see further down in the results) and we left all very close together Triumphal.
The poor Candy is now racing with me for nearly 2 years. She does mostly a test lap before and it goes 90% well. But when it comes to the race, she crashes in 3 out of 4 races at one of the first 3-4 crossings. Yesterday she crashed again at the second Crossing.
We have tried together all kind of settings already and have no idea anymore why this happens always to her. She loves this race and so she was always highly motivated to come back and chase us all. But i can understand very well that this motivation is slowly disappearing and changing into frustration. I can understand as well when she will take some breaks and enjoy her new sailboat in rl with the upcoming summer, but i hope she will come back in autumn with more luck.

Poor Yvonne must have had some issues with her internet connection. The world didnt rez for her and she crashed and lost her boat somewhere after the second buoy.
Lucy, Nicole and Dahlia had a close race for quite a long time until Dahlia got stuck somewhere and saw the two others only at the horizon. But the 3 finished.

  1. “This really is an exciting boat and race.”
    Because it is very basic. The essence of sailing. I love small uncomplicated boats, so the B25R and Qyv’s M24 are my absolute favs. Easy to sail, but not easy to win races in. Because we race to fight with the others, not to fight our boats. 😐
