Byte CII World Championship action Byte Class http://bytechamps.org/
The Byte CII is a fast and fun singlehanded one-design dinghy, it’s an ISAF International class picked for the Youth Olympic Games 2014.

The typical crew weight for the Byte CII is between 40 and 65kg, so it’s the perfect boat between the Optimist and Laser classes, because it allows lightweight sailors to master the dynamic sailing style needed for success in the Laser class and beyond. The CII’s Carbon, II (two) piece mast and fully battened Mylar sail are self-depowering.

Great value, with a cost per boat of just $7000 with attractive fleet discounts. Tom Rosaman from Performance Sailcraft Australia (PSA) commented this week, 'We are very excited to now be able to offer the Byte CII. The boat fits perfectly into our product range and we can see great potential for the boat and class in Australia. It is still early days for use with the Byte but if early interest is a guide we have a real winner on our hands!'


Boats are already being sailed in South Australia, Victoria, NSW and Queensland and our demonstration program will give interested sailors the chance to take a Byte and get a taste for what the boat is really about.
