Byte CII Worlds 2013 - Championship off to a perfect start

by Byte CII media on 25 Aug 2013
2013 Byte CII Pre Worlds Byte CII http://bytecii.com/
2013 Byte CII Worlds at Sail Newport, Rhode Island USA runs from August 24 to 28, 2013. 38 boats lined up for the Narragansett Bay area start with a record 22 countries represented in the three race Pre-World series.

PRO Anderson Reggio sent the fleet off in a 12-15 knot northerly on a double windward leeward course that, after three races, had really sorted out the pecking order.

The Byte Class likes to do a full series as a warm up and not just a single practice race. The latter usually results in the lead boats heading home at the weather mark or after the first round and little is learned by the competitors or, as importantly, by the Race Committee.

For several teams this was their first regatta in a Byte and the three race series was welcomed. Competitors dropped one race and their placing on the day is now entered as their first race in the Worlds.

Jonatan Vadnai from Hungary, fresh from the Laser 4.7 Youth Worlds, where he placed second overall sailed a perfect day with a 2, 1, 1 dropping the second. Not far behind was Singapore sailor Bernie Chin, who was sixth at the same event, counting a 1, 3 and tied in third were Peer Dill of Bermuda and the US 2013 Byte champion Henry Marshall.

Rounding out the top five was Pavle Zivanovic from Croatia with a 3, 5. These are currently the top five male qualifying countries for the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing China.

Top female was Cecilia Wollmann from Bermuda with a strong sixth. She was followed by Maria Erdi, Hungary in ninth place overall, Odile van Aanholt, Nederlands in 12th, Florence Allan, Cayman in 16th and Celeste Lugtmeijer, Dominican Republic in 17th. At present these are the five female country qualifiers.



The ranking after three races, with a drop, counts as the first race score in the main event beginning on Sunday morning on Narragansett Bay.'

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.

However, for now we’ll push on with the incredible semi-foiler Figaro 3, and the new Oceanis 51.1, along with what they represent for the brand as a whole. It is a very interesting tale, especially as Beneteau...

Pulling G’s with Beneteau – Pt I
In a car, just the one G will have you straining at your seatbelt. In a car, just the one G will have you straining at your seatbelt. Over nine (+ve) in an aircraft, and without a G-suit, you will be unconscious. So at three G’s, and pulling no punches with them either, we not only enjoyed our opportunity to sit with Gianguido Girotti (G3), we got to learn a lot as well!

JATO ignited as SuperFoiler prepares for take off (Pt I)
When small military transports have to take off from impossibly short runways with a belly full of cargo When small military transports have to take off from impossibly short runways with a belly full of cargo akin to Mr. Creosote, they reach for the JATO bottles. Aircraft like C-7 Caribous and LC130 Hercules strap rockets, yes rockets, to the underside of their wings to gain valuable extra thrust, which surely helps keep the pilots' heart rates below the red line.

I chatted with Clarke Smith, chairman for the 2017 Ted Hood Regatta, via email, to learn more about this exciting event. Given the late, great Ted Hood’s sterling reputation as both a sailor and innovator, it makes a lot of sense that the Storm Trysail Club’s Marblehead Station would create their inaugural Ted Hood Regatta (August 25-27), which will be held on the waters off of Marblehead, Massachusetts, in his honor. I corresponded with Clarke Smith, chairman for the 2017 Ted Hood Regatta, via email, to learn more.
