Race Day 11 with Bandit 22LTE at Saint Aubrey

The weater conditions were nice yesterday. Reni, Laured, Erin, Erika, Ella, Nicci, Moon, Rugger, and Juicy came out for our normal B22 course and wind from South West with 21knots. Only i got disconnected again watching the fleet at a buoy in first quarter of the race.
Niccy had a great start and started a great duel with Reni for the lead, but unfortunately watched Reni too much short before buoy OE, missed the sim cross there and crashed. She came back and started in a new boat far behind the fleet. So i took her finish picture to change her result manually

the fleet nicely lined up for the start

The start was pretty clear. All… well nearly all took the chance to start with full speed direction first buoy CS, but all on porttack. Only Rugger sailed slowly parallel along the startline with ROW because he was the only one on starbaord. That is all legal and the others have to watch him and sail around him, but do you think it is clever?
When you watch the start video you will see that at least 4 others with a good timing and maximum speed at the line passed Rugger while he needed to tack into direction buoy CS. And in my opinion his start isnt very clever, because a lot slower than the other ones. Our line is wide enough for all others to pass him on his way parallel to the line. He sailed after wards very well and maybe he will realise one day that he could have won a lot of time with a faster start… Lets see.

At buoy OE you will see Niccis boat shortly after her simcross crash just sailing straight into the nowhere. Shame because it really looked like an exciting duel between her and Reni.

After this i had to come back after my disconnect crash and lost the upwind leg to buoy CN and a lot of the downwind leg to buoy ON, but fortunately Hakiria had her camera still on and watch the fleet on the upwind leg to buoy CN

The fleet was sorted now and no one made another mistake until the finish line.

Finish: Reni 1st, Moon 2nd, Rugger 3rd and Laured 4th (video by Hakiria)

Erin finished 5th and Erika 6th, but unfortunately not caught by the camera. Sorry you two we promise to do better next time.

The race saw some exciting duells and passings until all was nicely sorted with Reni sailing nearly the whole time in front and not doing any mistakes. Congrats Reni for the win.
