Byte CII World Championship day 1 - GBR Emmett dominates

'2008 Byte CII World Championship day 1'    Byte Class

On the first day of competition at the 2008 Byte CII World Championship, Jon Emmett (GBR) continued where he left off in the Pre-Worlds yesterday, sailing to four first place finishes. Race one of the Series is the finishing position in the Pre-Race Series so he now has only five points -4 with the first drop -8 points and 11 points clear of Fengyi Lei of Singapore and Michael Mouzada of Brazil in second and third place respectively.

Racing was close behind him as the next five boats crossed in 8 seconds with Hanna Bloor (GBR) 2nd, Fengyi Lei (SIN) 3rd and Herman Nurfendi (SIN) 4th.

Race three was again dominated by Jon Emmett (GBR)but the fleet behind were getting closer. Surprise of the race was the very strong showing of Brazilian Michael Lousada. He sails in Sao Sebastiao in the State of Sao Paulo where the winds are usually very strong and his races to date, sailing the CII for the first time, have all been top five with the exception of the breakdown yesterday. He is seen below before the race trying to get warm in the 'inhuman' conditions completely foreign to a Brazilian!

Top six in the race were: Emmett (GBR), Lousada (BRA), Blore (GBR), Nurfendi (SIN), Lei (SIN) and Fengyi (SIN).

Race four and again it was Emmett but his margin was a little less on the three Singapore and one Brazilian behind him. Before the start Eugene Woo was seen below sporting his new toque in the un-Singapore like conditions.

Below, Herman Nurfendi takes the cover-up a bit further with full face mask and reports he never did get warm. And all this on a nice English summer day!

When all the boats got away clean, it was Emmett out in front of the bulge in the centre of the line and this could be the closest in the race that anyone got to him!

Meanwhile Nurfendi (SIN), below, was right up at the committee boat. He would end up 3rd in the race behind Emmett (GBR) and Fendyi (SIN).
