Nantucket YC Bandit 22 regatta 22 March

Tonight’s Bandit 22 LTE regatta went well. There were few tourists about so no incidents there. Erika crashed on the start of the third race and Bianca had unseating issues that race also but did manage to get back to her boat. However it did cost her the lead.

In the second race Moon and Erika battled along the whole course, side by side for most of it. Moon took a better line to the finish near the end and barely beat Erika. It was exciting to watch. Congratulations to Bianca for her two wins and Viv for her one.

I was lucky to win the 3rd: I am not sure I would have caught up with Bianca without her issues. She’s too fast on that toy boat!
One remark about the boat: she’s exciting to sail upwind, with some capacity to luff up quite high, so opening opportunities for tight close-hauled matches. I think we had one such match with Moon at the beginning of race 2. We lost much distance on the other 2 boats ahead with our poor VMG so close to the wind, but it was an interesting wrestling contest.

Yes i had these battles with him as well and tried to explain him that those are exciting in a match race but with many other boats it means to slow down both too much and let the others pass or sail away…
