The second day of the World Byte Championships enjoyed classic conditions on Upper Garda. Sunshine and a southerly wind of 12-14 knots allowed four races to be completed today bringing to a total of five overall.

The competitors had started to prepare themselves in front of the club during the morning even though the first race was scheduled for 12.30. This was delayed to 13.30 to wait for the wind from the south which was turning quickly. Hungarian Jonatan Vadnai leads in the men's category. He is the defending world champion having won it last year at Newport, USA. Vadnai took three firsts and a third today, but the most impressive part was the lead he took in some races over his opponents.

In second place but 21 points behind is Houtman of The Netherlands and third is Zivanovic of Croatia. The Italians are in good positions with Umberto Varbaro (LNI Follonica) fifth and Vittorio Gallinaro of Fraglia Vela Riva who climbed into seventh place after two fine fourths. The objective,however, is to be one of the six nations to qualify for the Youth Olympics. Croatia and Hungary have already qualified.

In the women's category Van Aanholt and Akkerman of The Netherlands hold the top two positions while Italian Carolina Albano (CV Muggia) is third after a good second partial in the penultimate race.

Races start at 13.00 Friday, 25th April.
