Byte CII World Championship - Hungarians claim victory in Newport

by Byte CII Media on 30 Aug 2013
2013 Byte CII World Championship day 5 Rodrigo Fernández http://www.andesvisual.com/
At the Byte CII World Championship, races 12 and 13 shook up the 22 nation fleet again in Newport with the lower end of the fleet turning in some of their best results of the regatta. A fog and a postponement started off the final day but, when it lifted, PRO Anderson Reggio was able to get off the first race in a 6 - 7 knot south westerly.

The second race was sailed in a slightly lighter southerly that started to die at the end of the race as the fog rolled back in. However, even though the shake up was enough to change the top five overall, it was not enough to change the male standings.

Jonatan Vadnai of Hungry had conservative finishes of fourth and ninth which added to his overnight lead over Henry Marshall of the US who had finishes of 10th and 16th for a second place finish overall. Pavle Zivanovic had the best scores of the day with two seconds but there was too much ground to make up with Marshall and he finished third. Bernie Chin of Singapore maintained his fourth place overall with finishes of six and 13 and a well earned spot for his country.

Going into the last day the top five overall were all male sailors but Maria Erdi of Hungary ended that in a fifth place finish tied with Justin Vittecoq of Canada. Erdi's first place in the ninth race broke the tie but still left Vittecoq in sixth overall, claiming the fifth qualifier spot in the male division.

In the women's division, Odile Van Aarnholt of the Netherlands topped the regatta for the first 11 races but, on the last day, had her lowest scores of the week with a 26th and an 18th. This dropped her more than the six point lead she carried into the day to give the World's female title to Maria Erdi of Hungry but good for a solid second place finish and a place in Nanjing.

Erdi sailed exceptionally well and was the only female in the top five overall to have race results in the top five with 1, 3, 3, 4, 5 finishes.

Cecilia Wollmann of Bermuda maintained her third place amongst the women and Samantha Yom from Singapore held on to fourth. Florence Allan of Cayman started the day in the fifth qualifying spot but had a couple of poor finishes and Celeste Lugtmeijer from the Dominican Republic slipped into the spot.

Taming the beast-a conversation with Stuart Meurer of Parker Hannifin
While AC72 cats were fast, they difficult to control, so Oracle partnered with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way. If you watched videos of the AC72s racing in the 34th America’s Cup (2013), you’re familiar with the mind-boggling speeds that are possible when wingsail-powered catamarans switch from displacement sailing to foiling mode. While foiling is fast, there’s no disguising the platform’s inherent instability. Now, Oracle Team USA has teamed up with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way.
