Race Day 12 with Bandit 25R at TrYC

Yesterday we were unfortunately only 3 boats. Maybe the upcoming summer and the nice weather keeps people a bit away. But nevertheless we will continue with our races.

Yvonne and Dahlia joined me in this race and we did the course TrYC Bandit 25r with wind North West and 18knots.

2 hours before the race i let LL restart a broken sim on the Course. So the weather was actually pretty fine.
Yvonne and Dahlia started pretty well, only me was overearly and had to go around startline buoy again and follow the two with some social distance. I could catch Dahlia, who was struggling with some script errors at the first buoy and continued my chase for Yvonne. A Little later Dahlia gave up with the “broken” boat and started with nearly 11min delay again in a new boat.
In the meantime i shortened the distance to Yvonne Inch by Inch and when we reached the Roman boat i was just behind her. My turn around the front of the Roman boat was unfortunately too optimistic and i got stopped by the ramming bar under the water. Yvonne did her turn a lot better and while i tried to get free i could only watch her becoming smaller and smaller again.
So i started chapter 2 of my chase and after the following long upwind leg i was right behind her again at the next buoy.
Both raising the spin and starting the long high speed leg. During this leg i could pass Yvonne and add a couple of meters between her and me. My lead stayed quite constant until we reached the finish line.
In the meantime Dahlia follwed us and arrived the finish without any more issues.

It was an exciting duell with Yvonne and even Dahlia following us with the delay caused by her technical issues enjoyed the sail.

And here are the results from yesterday:

  1. Ya, I remember summer in the northern hemisphere was always low on resident logins and action in SL. But this year, with all the lockdowns, it shouldn’t be so bad. Or are you all out of lockdown already … and much too early?

    Sorry for missing the race. I planned my comeback but was sound asleep at the time. 😮 So tuesday is my next chance, for the inaugural B22 race. 😉

    • Yes i think People working really hard on second Corona wave. They think they will die if they cant travel and make holidays, but they dont realise how stupid and egoistic that is. But July and August were in all years silent months and with the nice weather and BBQs in the garden the B25 race on Saturday stays naturally behind.
      I think Tuesday will be more crowded and it will be really exciting fun.

      • Let’s hope so. Even “never on” Orca will try to make an entrée and not fall asleep before it starts.
        She got the fancy design she must show off!
