Byte CII World Championship Day 4 - Northerly wind shakes up the fleet

2013 Byte CII World Championship day 4
On day four of the Byte CII World Championship in Newport, heavy rain caused postponement of the day's racing but, when it cleared, the competitors from 22 nations were met with a northerly oscillating up to 35° all afternoon. Two races saw the competitors going around the course as if tied with a rope and the racing was exceptionally close. Unfortunately, the sun came out and started to kill the wind with the last race barely making the time limit.

As there have been eleven races sailed, the competitors now have a second drop and the score sheet is looking more and more like the final thing.

Championship leader Jonatan Vadnai, HUN had a harder time of it in the lighter air with 17, 17 finishes in the first two races (which he has dropped) but took a second in the last very light air race. Second placed Henry Marshall, USA had a better day with a 6,13 (dropped) and a first and is now only 12 points behind Vadnai.

Pavle Zivanovic, CRO remains in third but Peter Dill, BER has dropped out of the top five.

Bernie Chin, SIN has moved into fourth and Justin Vitecoq CAN has now taken over the fifth country spot. He had the best overall results of the day with a 3, 2, 8.

The Sailing Sclerosis FoundationÕs yacht Oceans of Hope has been unveiled at a ceremony in Copenhagen, Denmark on World MS Day (Wednesday 28 May). Former Environment Minister and MEP Lone Dybk 3/4 r officially named the 20-metre yacht which will set sail from the Danish capital on 15 June on the first ever global circumnavigation crewed by people with multiple sclerosis (MS). - Oceans of Hope yacht named by Lone Dybkjær ahead of global voyage

In the women's lineup, Odile Van Aanholt, NED retained her lead with finishes of 5, 6 and a DSQ (dropped) but Maria Erdi, HUN had stronger finishes of 1, 4, and an OCS (also dropped), and is only six points out of first so tomorrow will be an exciting day for these two as they are well clear of the rest.

Cecilia Wollmann, BER remains in third but Capucine Raguet, FRA, who had vaulted into fourth yesterday, slipped out of the top five and Samantha Yom, SIN is now fourth. Florence Allan, CAY has moved back into fifth.
