ISAF Head of Competitions, Alastair Fox said, 'The Byte CII and the Techno 293 are fantastic choices for the YOG. The equipment is modern, visually exciting and extremely well suited for the 15/16 age category for the sailing events. ISAF will be working closely with the Classes, the Chinese Yachting Association and the Nanjing Organising Committee to deliver a successful sailing competition on Lake Jinniu during the Nanjing 2014 YOG.'

The Techno 293 and Byte CII were on display at the inaugural Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games.

Lara Vadlau (AUT) took gold in the girls Byte CII in Singapore and followed this up with a gold at the 2011 ISAF Youth Worlds. The Austrian then qualified her country for the London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition at the 2012 470 World Championships marking a fantastic run of results stemming from the inaugural Youth Olympic Games.

Virgin Islander Ian Barrows sailed to gold in the boys Byte CII in Singapore whilst in the Techno 293 the honours went the way of Siripon Kaewduang-Ngam (THA) in the girls and Mayan Rafic (ISR) in the boys.

The 2014 Youth Olympic Games will take place from 16-24 August 2014 in Nanjing, China with the sailing taking place in the northern outskirts of the city at Nanjing Jinniu Lake.

The Qualification System for the 2014 YOG is currently being finalised with the IOC and more information will be released in due course.
