Local Sailors Conclude In Rhode Island Regatta

August 29, 2013

The 2013 Byte CII Worlds in Rhode Island concluded with Bermuda’s Peter Dill, Ceci Wollmann, Ben Smith and Chase Cooper once again taking to the waters.

Races 12 and 13 shook up the fleet again with the lower end of the fleet turning in some of their best results of the regatta. A fog and a postponement started off the day but, when it lifted, PRO Anderson Reggio was able to get off the first race in a 6 – 7 knot south westerly.

The second race was sailed in a slightly lighter southerly that started to die at the end of the race as the fog rolled back in. However, even though the shakeup was enough to change the top five overall, it was not enough to change the male standings.

Dill finished 8th overall with 116 points, Smith recorded a total of 245.2 points to finish 27th, while Cooper finished 30th with 266 points. In the Women’s Division, Wollmann maintained her third place amongst the women after she finished 12th overall with 151 points.
