Byte CII World Championship 2013 set to start with 22 nations sailing


'Byte CII mark rounding'    Byte Class

Registration was completed yesterday at the 2013 Byte CII Worlds at Sail Newport, Rhode Island USA and an amazing roster of 22 countries are represented at this event, which runs from August 24 to 28, 2013.

54 boats are expected to line up for the Narragansett Bay area start and the number of countries represented at this event is a huge vote in favor of the single handed Byte CII, which was specifically designed for light weight sailors, which has been growing in popularity because it is provides an excellent transition between the Optimist and the Laser.

Today a short sharp Pre-World´s racing day with a maximum of three races to be sailed. But this event has a twist, as the combined rankings after those Pre-World races will be carried into the Worlds as a single race score, after the fashion of the ISAF World Sailing Cup events.

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.

Anderson Reggio, the Principal Race Officer was upbeat on the eve of the event.

'As far as we can tell, the quantity of countries represented here tops any world championship ever hosted in Newport.

'The Byte CII is a quite dynamic boat which has attracted some of the world's best youth talent for this event.

'With tomorrow's pre-worlds forecast to take place in a strong northerly breeze, we will soon know who takes the early lead into the Worlds. Tomorrow's ranking after three races counts as the first race score in the main event beginning on Sunday morning on Narragansett Bay.'

Bob Adam from Zim Sailing, the US Byte CII distributor commented ‘Apart from Optis, this is probably one of the largest international regattas outside of Europe in a long time.

'We are absolutely thrilled that sailors from 22 countries are here for this World Championship, its an awesome introduction for the Byte CII for youth sailors in the United States.

'We were very pleased to hear from Leandro Spina, who is one of the coaches of the US Olympics team that he believes the Byte CII is the boat that kids should be sailing after Optis.'

The 2013 Byte CII World Championship is also an Open Qualifier for the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing China.

The top ranked male and female competitor from the first five different nations in the final scoring, will qualify that nation for a respective male and female position in the singlehanded sailing discipline of the Youth Olympic Games as per the ISAF Qualification System.

This Championship only qualifies the nation and does NOT automatically qualify the sailor. The sailor finally selected for the Games will be chosen by the ISAF Member National Authority (MNA) of the qualified nation.
