byte CII


The Byte CII is a FAST and FUN singlehanded one-design dinghy with a competitive international class. The CII’s carbon two piece mast and fully battened Mylar sail offer more power adjustment than found on similar boats. This allows sailors with a wider weight range (100-165 lbs) to sail in a broader range of conditions, while remaining competitive within the fleet. This also means the CII is not just for juniors, but great for anyone in that range. The controls for vang, outhaul, and cunningham, are all led to either side of the boat’s deck with multi-purchase ball bearing block systems for easy fine tuning. The vang can be adjusted on a full plane from the cockpit. This more modern rig makes the Byte CII an easy transition from the optimist, and a great platform to gain more practical skills to help you transition to bigger boats like the 420 and 29er.
