2013 Byte CII World Championship - Catch me if you can!!


'Competitors lining up for the start of race 3 - Byte CII Worlds 2013'    Byte Class

The first three races of the 2013 Byte CII World Championship sailed in perfect conditions as Jonatan Vadnai of Hungary excels in the 38 boat fleet.

The wind came in late but, when it did come, it gave the sailors from 22 countries perfect 15 knot conditions.

Three races were sailed on Narragansett Bay and, by the end of the day, it was clear that Hungarian Jonatan Vadnai, who won the Pre-Worlds series yesterday was going to be the competitor you would have to beat to win this championship.

The four times Hungarian Optimist champion sailed into second place at the Laser 4.7 Youth Worlds last month and its easy to see why.

He had two first place finishes and a second when he was yellow flagged on the beat for a Rule 42 violation and lost out to US sailor Henry Marshall.

Henry, the 2013 Byte CII US. Champion sailed extremely fast today but was saddled with an OCS in the first race and a percentage penalty in the last race for a 'Z' flag start violation.

When the first drops kick in tomorrow he will definitely move up the ladder.

There were some big moves in the fleet today, the most notable being Odile Van Aarnholt, Netherlands, who moved from her 12th place overall yesterday to fifth overall and is atop of the female ladder. Other big movers were Justin Vittecoq, Canada, from 15th to eighth and the biggest jump of all Paul DeSouza, Bahamas from 25th to 12th.

The top five male countries in the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing China rankings .are now Hungary, Singapore, Croatia, Bermuda and Thailand. On the female side they are Netherlands, Bermuda, Hungary, the Dominican Republic and Cayman.

The 2013 Byte CII Worlds at Sail Newport, Rhode Island USA runs from August 24 to 28, 2013.

A maximum of thirteen World Championship races are scheduled with Race One being the competitors placing in the Pre- Worlds. There will be a maximum of four races per day on each of Race Days Two, Three, Four, and Five, Sunday August 25th thru Wednesday 28th August.

Once five races are completed from race day two onwards a single worst result drop will come in, after nine races, two worst race results will be dropped.

The following is the start sequence and early beat of Race 2:
At the gun Cecilia Wollman BER squeezes out Jonatan Vadnai HUN with Henry Marshall USA to weather - Byte CII Worlds 2013 -  Byte Class  

Jonatan HUN bears away under Cecilia BER - Note excellent start of Odile Van Aarnolt NED to weather - Byte CII Worlds 2013 -  Byte Class  

Jonatan sails low and fast in clear air - Henry USA has started to roll Cecilia BER - Byte CII Worlds 2013 -  Byte Class  

Jonatan eases up under Cecilia squeezing her into Henry - Odile NED continues to hold her lane - Byte CII Worlds 2013 -  Byte Class  

Cecilia is squeezed out and Jonatan bears way for speed - Odile is in the process of tacking away - Byte CII Worlds 2013 -  Byte Class  

Jonatan starts to move out on Henry - Byte CII Worlds 2013 -  Byte Class  

Jonatan has Henry at the weather mark but not by much - They were noticeably the fastest in Race 2 - Byte CII Worlds 2013 -  Byte Class
