Byte CII World Championship days 3 and 4

'2008 Byte CII World Championship'    Byte Class

On the third day of competition at the 2008 Byte CII World Championship, winds continued to drop and, on Thursday, they were just below planing for all but the very lightest who did manage some spurts. Again, Jon Emmett (GBR) demonstrated his huge talent in all conditions by winning all four races.

The course was two triangles for Race 10 and the top of the fleet all came in from the left, led by Emmett. At the top mark, he let off his kicker - completely, unfortunately - and the rope unreeved. With a jury rig he maintained his lead to the end. second was Shevaun Sethi (SIN) having her best result so far. Mary Stamp (GBR), the oldest competitor at 68, was out on the water for the first time with a very respectable 18th. Fengyi Lei (SIN) had his worst race to date with an eighth, now dropped - an indication of how consistent he has been. Other than these three, competitor placings were fairly consistent with their results to date. Michael Louzada had another altercation with Hannah Bloor (GBR) and lost his sixthplace in a DSQ. third went to Herman Nurfendi (SIN), fourth Bloor (GBR), fifth Rezel (SIN) and sixth Nicholson (CAN).

Emmett won the pin in Race 11 but was over the line early. After returning, he worked the centre of the course as the fleet had gone left. He was third at the weather mark, took one on the reaches and took the last two upwind. Sethi(SIN) took another second place, Lei(SIN) another uncharasteristic eighth (dropped) and Herman Nurfendi(SIN) his lowest placing so far with a sixth which he has dropped. third was Eugene Woo (SIN), fourth Michael Louzada, fifth Tom Nicholson (CAN) and sixth Ian Rezel (SIN).

Race12 Emmett nearly lost. He tacked over onto port too soon near the top and several, including Louzada (BRA), went a bit further. He arrived fourth at the weather mark, got two back on the reaches, one more upwind, but Louzada held him off all the way until just at the finish line. Louzada had sailed high on the last reach home while Emmett sailed a straight line to the finish and that was the difference. third was Nurfendi(SIN), fourth Lei (SIN) and fifth Nicholson (CAN).

Emmett lead Race 13 from start to finish although very close behind there was very close racing between Singapore and Canada. Herman Nurfendi (SIN) had his best finish with a second, Fengyi Lei (SIN) took third, Tom Nicholson (CAN) fourth and Eugene Woo (SIN) finished pretty well on his average scores with the fifth.

Jon Emmett (GBR) sailed the last two races of the Championship even though he did not need to do so - a very nice touch from a classy competitor. He won race 14, 15 was thrown out and he ended up with 12 first place finishes after dropping a first and a third. Hard to beat!

The racing conditions today were questionable and the second race should probably not have been started at all. The fleet already had 13 races in the bag with two drops but 15 races would give competitors a third drop. It was not to be. Only one race was scored on the day.
