Byte CII Worlds day 3

'2009 Byte CII Worlds'    Byte Class

On day three of the 2009 Byte CII Worlds, the Kingston thermal arrived but it did not wait for its usual 1:00 pm appearance. By the start of Race 7, winds were in the 14 -16 knot range and the RC set a double sausage for the race. The fleet got away on the first start with Ian Barrows ISV again down at the pin. This time he got it as seen in the sequence below but note the start of Ling Ying Koh SIN18 in the centre of the line, taking full advantage of the sag.

Below. GUN!!

With the wind came a dramatic change in the leader board. At the end of the first sausage, defending champ Jon Emmett GBR had a huge lead over all but Brazilian sailor Michael Louzada and it looked like a replay of some of their races in Weymouth in 2008. Below, they approach the bottom mark with no other sailors in sight. In fact, Jon had turned over at the start of the run! While swimming, Michael passed him but, seen here, Jon had regained the lead by the bottom mark.

A full round later, again at the bottom mark before coming across to the finish line, the positions are the same but Michael has whittled down Jon's lead a little - but not enough!

Brazilian Denise Chagas comes in 13th. At day's end she was third behind Germaine Teo SIN12 and Najwa Jumali SIN2 in the women's overall standings and, at age 45, she is leading the Master's Tropy (for sailors over 40).

Race 8 - won by Jon Emmett GBR

An apology! Shortly after the following pictures of the start sequence of Race 8 were taken, the camera man went for an unscheduled swim! As a result there is, unfortunately, no further commentary after this sequence.

Races 9 and 10 were also won by Jon Emmett giving him four for four on the day. Right behind him was Michael Louzada BRA who had a 2,2,2,8 (after a capsize while in second). These two sit in fifth and sixth overall.

Starting sequence for the second start of Race 8 under the Black flag.

It is not immediately apparent from the photo above but, observed from the committee boat, it was noticeably obvious that Jon Emmett, amongst the heaviest in the regatta, was sailing with more twist in his sail than even the lightest sailors in the fleet. Perhaps there is a message here for the lightweights! Flat is fast, (and a lot more comfortable!)
