Sizzler Worlds gets underway
April 2, 2007

Competitors have been arriving in Pattaya since Saturday and some UK sailors were still arriving late Monday. The farthest travelled are the three Brazilian sailors and their team leader Cristina dehn, who were in the air for 50 hours to get here! The 15-strong Singapore team was first on the water and has been practicing long hours but, by the end of Monday, all but a couple of UK sailors had sailed in the fabulous 15 knot winds right off the Club.
The Brazilian team. On the left is Fabio Ramos, owner of Katavento Capas Nauticas, a Brazilian boat canvas Company and winner of the 2007 Brazilian Byte Championship. Next to him is Denise Chagas, well known Brazilian sailor and a text editor for the local university, UFRGS, where her husband Jose is a professor. On the right is Dr. Amandio Rampinelli, a cardiovascular surgeon at the Institute of Cardiology in the State of Santa Catarina and Vice President of the Lagoa Iate Clube in Florianopolis City. 

Canada's hopes rest on Dana Archibald from Nova Scotia who won the CII East Grand Prix and, in so doing, a trip to Thailand.  She missed 6 of the races in the Bermuda World's due to a bad back but a winter of strength training has her in good shape and she is expected to do very well in this championship.
